Collaborating using Amazon Chime chat

Amazon Chime gives you two ways to chat—Amazon Chime chat and in-meeting chat. The topics in this section explain how to use Amazon Chime chat, the screens that you use when you aren't in a meeting. For information about using chat in meetings, see Using in-meeting chat.

In Amazon Chime chat, you can chat with colleagues directly, in a group, or in a chat room. You can share attachments of up to 50 megabytes, search contacts, conversations, and chat rooms, and read conversations across all devices.

You can also go to Recent Messages to see the latest one-on-one and group messages from the past 7 days, or choose All messages to browse through all of your chat conversation history. Use Favorites to organize important threads.

In the chat window, the following statuses indicate whether a user is available to chat.

  • Green checkmark – The user is available.

  • Red – The user is busy.

  • Blue clock icon – The user is idle.

  • Gray forward slash – The user is offline.

  • Green mobile icon – The user is available on mobile.

  • Gray lock icon – The user's presence is hidden. To set this status, from a mobile device or the Amazon Chime web application, choose Settings, Share availability information with No one.

  • Do not disturb icon – The user’s status is set to Do not disturb. Their chat notifications and meeting auto-calls are muted.
