Yes, the Chime Windows client can be used in a Kiosk Mode.

The Amazon Chime Windows client offers a kiosk mode. When launched in kiosk mode, Chime opens full-screen and doesn't provide users with an easy way to exit full screen, close the application, or switch to a different application. This helps ensure that the system remains focused on running Chime meetings. Kiosk mode works best when signed-in with an account dedicated for the room, so the room gets auto-called for meetings just like other users and upcoming meetings all appear on the Home screen.

Like all other meeting attendees, users joining from a room using kiosk mode can view and share video, participate in meeting chat, or even collaborate outside of the meeting experience in chat conversations and chat rooms.

Kiosk mode works best when run on a computer controlled remotely through PowerShell or other command line interface.

To enter kiosk mode:

  1. Quit Amazon Chime (%AppData%\Chime\Chime.exe /Q)
  2. Enter %AppData%\Chime\Chime.exe /kioskon
  3. Chime will launch in kiosk mode and will continue launching in kiosk mode every time it is opened.

To turn off kiosk mode:

  1. Quit Amazon Chime (%AppData%\Chime\Chime.exe /Q)
  2. Enter %AppData%\Chime\Chime.exe /kioskoff
  3. Chime will launch with the standard interface and will continue to do so each time it is opened unless kiosk mode is turned back on.

Kiosk mode launches in full screen




Users are not given options to Sign Out, Close, or Minimize the application
