Amazon Web Services (AWS) announces a new unified communications service that makes meetings easier and more efficient than ever before. Cutting the cost to one-third compared to traditional solutions, the new Amazon Chime enable customers to start high-quality video and audio meetings with one-click. It will also allow customers to host or join a meeting, chat, and share content and screens with a seamless, synchronized experience across desktops, iOS, and Android devices.
Amazon Chime bets to take frustration out of meetings, delivering very high quality video, voice, chat, and screen sharing.
Amazon Chime calls all participants when a meeting starts so joining a meeting is as easy as clicking a button in the app, no PIN required.
To evade noise on calls, like typing, somebody joins or drops mid-call, Amazon Chime shows a visual roster of all attendees. This feature gives the power to attendee to put an end to background noise by muting any noisy line.
Amazon Chime offers strong mobile and desktop apps, and keeps meetings and chats synchronized across devices, so users can join meetings from anywhere via Android, iOS, Mac, and Windows apps (and seamlessly switch from mobile to desktop, or app to app whenever needed).
Amazon Chime can be integrated with existing corporate directories, and provides IT administrators the ability to manage identities and control access across an organization. It requires no upfront investments, complicated deployment, or ongoing maintenance – customers can simply download the application and get started using the service in minutes.

A generic movie-buff, passionate and professional with print journalism, serving editorial verticals on Technical and B2B segments, crude rover and writer on business happenings, spare time playing physical and digital forms of games; a love with philosophy is perennial as trying to archive pebbles from the ocean of literature. Lastly, a connoisseur in making and eating palatable cuisines.
