Chatting with another user in Amazon Chime

You can have a one-on-one chat conversation with another user using Amazon Chime. It’s also easy to turn that chat into an instant meeting. Prefer a message to a chat? You can use your call history to find and select a contact to message.

To chat directly with another user

  1. From the Amazon Chime client, do one of the following:

    • Choose the person's name in the left pane.

    • Choose Message and select a name.

    Note

    If you don't see the name that you want, choose Contacts. Search for or invite the contact.

  2. Messages are sent to your desktop app if it’s the most active device. If you’re away or on a mobile device, Amazon Chime sends them to your mobile app as push notifications.

  3. To start an instant meeting, choose the phone icon in the upper-right corner to call the other person.

When you’re in a chat conversation, you can edit the members of the chat to create a new group chat conversation with the users that you select. For more information, see Chatting with multiple users in Amazon Chime.
