Available regions - Amazon Chime SDK

Available regions

The following tables list the features of the Amazon Chime SDK service and the AWS Regions that provide each service.

Note

Regions marked with an asterisk (*) must be enabled in your AWS account. AWS blocks those regions by default. For more information about enabling regions, see Enabling a Region in the AWS General Reference.

Meeting Regions

Amazon Chime SDK meetings have control regions and media regions. A control region provides the API endpoint used to create, update and delete meetings. Media regions host the actual meetings.

A control region can create a meeting in any media region in the same AWS partition. However, you can only update a meeting in the control region used to create the meeting.

The following table lists the Regions that provde control, media, or both.
