You and your meeting attendees can share a screen during an Amazon Chime meeting when joining from the web app in a Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Chromium Edge browser or by using one of the other Amazon Chime clients that supports screen sharing: desktop clients (macOS and Windows), or supported in-room video systems (H.323 or SIP). In other browsers, such as Safari and IE, the Amazon Chime web application may be used to view a screen shared by another attendee but not share your screen.
Screen sharing is supported on the Amazon Chime web app from the latest three versions of Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Chromium Edge. After joining a meeting, select Share > Start screen share to begin.
Note: If you are running an earlier version of Google Chrome (e.g. v34 to v71) a browser extension, available from the Chrome Web Store (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/category/extensions?hl=en-US), can be installed to share your screen. Once installed you can return to the meeting and choose Screen > Start screen share.
Sharing from Google Chrome:
After selecting Screen > Start screen share, you will be prompted to select the content to share: Your Entire Screen, Application Window, or Chrome Tab. Choose the option and then select Share to start sharing your screen.
While you're sharing your content, you will see a modal on the bottom of your screen indicating what is being shared in the Amazon Chime web app.
You can change the content source by selecting Screen > Change screen share source from the Chime meeting tab to select a different screen, window, or Chrome Tab.
Sharing from Mozilla Firefox:
After selecting Screen > Start screen share, you will be prompted to select a Window or Screen to share from a drop down menu. Choose the option and then select Allow to start sharing your screen.
While you're sharing your content, you will see a blinking "screen share" icon in the address bar indicating what is being shared in the Amazon Chime web app.
If you are sharing from a Windows device, you will be presented with a modal that is hidden from the share and can click on the screen share icon to control the sharing.
You can change the content source by selecting Screen > Change screen share source from the Chime meeting window and select a different screen, window, or browser tab.
Finally you can stop screen sharing by clicking Stop sharing on the screen sharing modal, or by choosing Screen > Stop screen share from the Amazon Chime meeting menu.
