Joining a Meeting without the Amazon Chime App

If you don't have the Amazon Chime app installed, you can still join a meeting if the host includes meeting instructions in the calendar invite.

If you are using the latest three versions of Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome, you can join meetings with the Amazon Chime web app. Using the web app lets you share your screen or an application window, and see in your browser when someone shares their screen. You can also hear the meeting's audio through your computer or dial-in, participate in meeting chat, and use Amazon Chime meeting controls.

If you are joining a moderated meeting, you are unable to interact with other attendees until a moderator joins and starts the meeting. If you have the moderator passcode, choose Enter moderator passcode to join as a moderator and start the meeting. For more information, see Scheduling a Moderated Meeting.

If your administrator has enabled the Amazon Chime call me feature, you can choose Call me at a phone number to have Amazon Chime call you at your preferred phone number.
