While attending a meeting, there are several ways to change the audio device(s) being used when joining from an Amazon Chime Windows, macOS, or web application.

  1. Use the device selection found in the upper right of the meeting window. The current device is listed for input (Microphone) and output (Speakers) and if the current selection was chosen because it is the operating system default - it will have Default prepended to the name.

    To change the device, click on the name and select from the available devices.

  2. If you are using the Amazon Chime web application or joining from a browser, before video or screen share is enabled, the Microphone, Speakers, and Video camera options are displayed under the meeting name. Click on the option and choose from your available devices.
  3. Choose Change Audio or Change Video from the More menu and choose from your available devices.

NOTES:

When signed in and using the Amazon Chime Windows or macOS clients, your device settings will be remembered from the previous meeting.

When using the Amazon Chime web application (https://app.chime.aws) or joining from a browser, your device settings will always start with the operating system defaults.

When joining from a Firefox browser, the Speakers option is always set by the Operating System and can only be changed using the System settings. If you change the option while already in the meeting you may need to reload the page and re-join your meeting.
