Amazon Chime now supports screen sharing from Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome without a plug-in or extension

Posted on: Oct 16, 2019

Amazon Chime users can now screen share from Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome without installing any extensions or downloading a plug-in on Microsoft Windows, macOS, Linux and Chrome OS desktop devices. Chime now leverages the Web APIs available in Mozilla Firefox version 66 and higher or Google Chrome version 72 and higher to deliver native screen share capabilities. In three clicks, any attendee using these browsers can join a Chime meeting and start sharing an application window or the entire screen with other participants. There is no need for pre-meeting testing or setup as all attendees, even those that work in highly regulated environments and are blocked from making changes to their devices, can now share content during Chime meetings without the need for IT intervention. 

For more details on browser-based screen sharing in Chime, please see the release notes.
