Amazon Chime is a new video conferencing service from Amazon Web Services, which first went live on Monday.
The cross-platform video and audio calling app runs on Windows, MacOS, iOS, and Android, and promises to make work conferences more seamless and easier to get started.
The software promises to make screen sharing easy, as well as prevent lag, low-quality video, and other common issues with videoconferencing.
Here's what it's like to use:
Chime puts all your various needs for meetings in one place, syncing up notifications and various chats. Here's what a five-way videoconference on Chime looks like.
One of the key features will be screen sharing, which will work on both computers as well as phones and other mobile devices.
Screensharing is important for working on slide decks and application development together.
Here's what it looks like when you get a Chime call.
Chime is not free. It starts at $2.50 per user per month, although the first 30 days are free.
