Joining a meeting early - Amazon Chime

Joining a meeting early

If you need to get set up for a meeting before the start time, or just prefer to stay ahead of schedule, you can join a meeting early.

To join a meeting early

  1. Do one of the following:

    • From the Amazon Chime desktop client or web app, choose Home, Join a meeting.

    • From the Amazon Chime mobile app, choose Meetings.

  2. A list of meetings that start in the next 30 minutes appears. Choose your meeting to join.


    If you don't see the meeting in the list, choose Meetings, Join a meeting. Then, enter the meeting ID to join.

  3. In the Choose Meeting Audio dialog box, choose one of the following options:

    • If you are the only audio source in the room, choose Use Mic & Speakers.

    • If you are dialing in, using an in-room video system, or if there is another user in the room using their audio, choose Disable Mic & Speakers.

    • If you want to get the phone number and meeting ID to access the meeting, choose Dial-in.

If anyone else joins early, you can see their information and communicate with them before the meeting starts.

If you are joining a moderated meeting early, the Message all option and other attendee interactions are blocked until a moderator joins and starts the meeting.

If you are the meeting host or delegate for a moderated meeting, the meeting starts automatically as soon as you join. 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.
