The Amazon Chime SDK now has meeting API endpoints in the US West (Oregon), Europe (Frankfurt) and Asia Pacific (Singapore) AWS Regions, providing customers a choice of which AWS Region they use to create and manage meetings which can be hosted in any of the 18 Amazon Chime media regions.

The Amazon Chime SDK lets developers add real-time audio, video, screen share, and messaging to their web applications. Customers can reduce API latency by using the endpoint nearest to their application, and implement high availability architectures by using multiple endpoints. Customers who require endpoints with FIPS 140-2 validated cryptographic modules, now have a choice of US East (Northern Virginia) and US West (Oregon) AWS Regions.

The AWS SDK includes a new namespace to use the new meeting API endpoints. To learn more about the Amazon Chime SDK meetings, how they use AWS Regions and migrating to the new namespace, review the following resources:
