Using Amazon Chime on Dolby hardware

If Dolby Voice Room or Dolby Voice Huddle is enabled with Amazon Chime, you can join an Amazon Chime meeting quickly from a conference room. With in-room calendar integration, you can select a meeting with a single tap. If Amazon Chime Business Calling is enabled, you can receive inbound and place outbound calls.

Scheduling meetings

You can use any of the Amazon Chime schedule meeting tools to schedule meetings. From an Amazon Chime desktop or web client, choose More and Schedule a meeting, or use either of the Outlook add-ins.
