Sharing your screen during an Amazon Chime meeting

Anyone joining a meeting from an Amazon Chime Windows or macOS client or a supported in-room video system can share their screen. You can also stop notifications from appearing while you're sharing your screen.

To share your screen during a meeting

  1. Choose Screen.

  2. Do one of the following:

    • Choose Share Screen to share your whole screen.

    • Choose Share Window to share a specific window.

Desktop users in the meeting see a Shared screen pop-up, and mobile users see an alert to either view or ignore the shared screen. Meeting attendees who view your shared screen can zoom in on it by using their pointer.

If you're sharing your entire screen with the Amazon Chime client for Windows or macOS, one or multiple attendees can request keyboard and pointer control of your desktop by choosing Share, Request Shared Control. For more information, see Requesting desktop control.

To stop notifications from appearing while you share your screen, update your Amazon Chime settings.

To suppress notifications while screen sharing

  1. Do one of the following:

    • From the Windows client – Choose File, Settings, Notifications.

    • From the macOS client – Choose Amazon Chime, Preferences, Notifications.

  2. Select Suppress all notifications while screen sharing.

  3. Choose Done.


The Amazon Chime web application supports screen sharing on Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox for Windows, macOS, and Linux desktops. You don't need a plugin or extension. If you installed the Amazon Chime screen share extension for Google Chrome versions 34 -71, and you now run a more recent version of Google Chrome, Amazon Chime bypasses the extension and uses the browser's native capabilities.
