Amazon Chime now uses 16 AWS regions to host meetings closer to participants

Amazon Chime now hosts meetings in 16 AWS Regions and more than 32 Availability Zones. Amazon Chime now automatically selects the region that provides a low latency for all meeting participants, whether they are all local in one place or distributed globally. Meeting region selection is performed for every meeting based on participant proximity to AWS Regions and AWS network telemetry.

Amazon Chime administrators can choose where meetings for their organization can be hosted by opting in or out of each AWS Region supported by Amazon Chime. Amazon Chime meetings can now be hosted in the following AWS Regions: Northern Virginia, Ohio, Oregon, Northern California, Montreal, São Paulo, Ireland, Frankfurt, London, Paris, Stockholm, Singapore, Tokyo, Sydney, Cape Town, and Milan.
