Yes! Attendees can join Amazon Chime meetings without using the Amazon Chime app.

The following describes how to join a meeting without creating an Amazon Chime account:

On Firefox or Chrome (we recommend Chrome if you would like to share your screen. See this article for details on how to install the Amazon Chime Screen Share Chrome Extension)
  1. Join a meeting: Click on the join link in the body of your calendar invite or enter the URL directly into your browser, such as https://chime.aws/7890561234. You can also visit https://app.chime.aws and click on "Join a meeting without an account".
  2. Enter the meeting ID (if it is not yet filled in), then enter your name as you want it to be displayed in the meeting roster.



  3. Select how you would like to join the meeting: with audio through the app or dial in.

    1. If your browser supports VoIP audio you can choose Use your computer's mic and speakers.
    2. If you would like Chime to call your phone, choose Call me at a phone number and you will be prompted to enter a phone number. Chime will then call you. Press 5 to accept the call. See our pricing page for Call me rates and the list of countries we support (Note, the meeting host is charged per minute per user when an attendees chooses call me. Local toll charges may apply to the attendee as well). Find out more about call me here.
    3. If you would like to dial into the meeting, choose I will dial in manually and enter the meeting PIN and you will be presented with available countries and associated dial in numbers. See our pricing page for Dial-in rates and the list of countries we support (Note, the meeting host is charged per minute per user when an attendees chooses to dial in. Local toll charges may apply to the attendee as well).
    4. If there is already someone in the room that has connected using an audio source and you want to join the meeting and use video, share your screen, view screen share or participate in meeting chat and the roster, choose I am using another audio source or already connected.

Using the Amazon Chime app
: To join and participate with VoIP audio or use other Amazon Chime features including video and screen sharing, select Launch in Amazon Chime app.
  • If you do not yet have the Amazon Chime application installed, choose "Download the free Amazon Chime app" and complete the installation process. Once installed, return to this web page and choose Launch in Amazon Chime app to join the meeting. There is no Amazon Chime account creation or registration required.
  • If you have the Amazon Chime application installed, choose to allow the app to be launched and then to join using your Mic and Speakers.
Dial-in: If you are not intending to use an Amazon Chime app or audio from an in-room conference room, use the information presented to dial into the call and enter the Meeting ID followed by #. Alternatively, you can enter a phone number and have Amazon Chime call you.

Join from an in-room video system. Access the Amazon Chime bridge (use the SIP endpoint <meeting_id>@meet.chime.in or meet@chime.in or for H.323 access the bridge using 52.23.133.56) and when prompted enter the Meeting ID provided in your invite.
