Amazon Chime now supports up to 250 attendees for any meeting hosted by a user with Amazon Chime Pro permissions. IT administrators don't need to do anything special to let their users host larger meetings and there is no additional host fee for the increased meeting size. Amazon Chime Pro users can host meetings with up to 250 attendees without advanced scheduling or additional permissions, and the new meeting capacity is retroactive so existing meetings don't need to be updated or rescheduled to support the larger attendee limit.
To reduce distractions associated with larger meetings, additional logic has been added to automatically mute new attendees, disable attendee status change notifications and silence join and leave tones for any meeting that has 25 or more attendees invited or present. With these changes, hosts and their attendees can focus on the meeting content and getting work done.
Information on the new features can be found on Amazon Chime Help Center and the Amazon Chime User Guide.
