The Chime Web Application Can Now Dial Out to Your Phone for Meetings

On August 22nd, Amazon Chime announced the call me feature, a new audio option that makes it more convenient for you to join Chime meetings by phone. Whether you’re working from home or on the go from any device, you can simply enter your telephone number into the Chime web application, and Chime will call you and add you to the meeting. With the call me feature, you can join your meetings on time, even if you need to join from a telephone and not using the Chime application. Chime also remembers the last number you entered, so you won’t need to re-enter it for future meetings.

IT Administrators choose Enable outbound calling to join meetings from the Policies section of the Amazon Chime Console for the Amazon Chime account. This feature is not enabled by default because it has associated per minute per participant usage fees (see https://aws.amazon.com/chime/call-me-rates/). Once enabled, meetings which are hosted by your users are able to access the feature.


To use the call me feature, you choose the Call me at a phone number option when joining a Chime meeting with the web application:


Then choose the country and provide the number to call (Note at launch we support over 40 countries):


You will receive a call from Chime and asked to confirm the connection.
