Starting today, Amazon Chime, a service that simplifies video conferencing, online meetings, calls and chat, now supports incoming webhooks. Developers can configure their applications to use incoming webhooks to post messages into Amazon Chime chat rooms as soon as updates occur. This enables Amazon Chime chat rooms to become a central hub for real-time team collaboration where participants can be more responsive to messages from important applications, as well as respond to messages from each other. 

Incoming webhooks can be set up by chat room administrators from an Amazon Chime desktop client to generate a webhook URL, which is then provided to developers. An application can send a message to an Amazon Chime chat room by calling the webhook API with an HTTP POST request. To learn more, visit Automate Chat Messages with Webhooks.

There is no additional charge to send messages to an Amazon Chime chat room using incoming webhooks. Amazon Chime offers pay-as-you-go pricing, with no upfront payments, and no infrastructure to deploy. You can try Amazon Chime Pro for free for 30 days by visiting Download Amazon Chime.
