Using the Amazon Chime Meetings App for Slack

In Slack, you can use the Amazon Chime Meetings App for Slack to start an instant meeting or call with the people in your organization or workspace. You need to provide your Slack user credentials once, and you don't need an Amazon Chime account or user profile.

The following steps explain how to start a call or meeting in a workspace or organization. If you can’t complete these steps, contact your administrator.

To start an instant meeting or call

  1. In a Slack thread or channel, do one of the following:

    • Choose Call.

    • Enter /chime.

  2. If this is your first time using the Amazon Chime Meetings App for Slack, follow the authentication prompts to sign in to it.

The call automatically opens in your browser. The other people in the Slack thread or channel choose Join to join the meeting or call.

If you are a Slack organization or workspace administrator, you can set up the Amazon Chime Meetings App for Slack for your organization or workspace. For more information, see Setting up the Amazon Chime Meetings App for Slack in the Amazon Chime Administrator Guide.
