You can now build scalable stream chat rooms with built-in moderation options designed to accompany live streaming video using the new Amazon Interactive Video Service (Amazon IVS) stream chat feature. With this feature, streamers and viewers can build community relationships by asking questions and participating in discussions. Amazon IVS chat provides chat room resource management and a messaging API for sending, receiving, and moderating chat messages. Visit the Amazon IVS chat feature page to learn more.

Amazon Interactive Video Service (Amazon IVS) is a managed live streaming solution that is designed to be quick and easy to set up, and ideal for creating interactive video experiences. Send your live streams to Amazon IVS using the IVS mobile broadcast SDK or standard streaming software such as Open Broadcaster Software (OBS) and the service is designed to provide everything you need to make low-latency live video available to any viewer around the world, letting you focus on building interactive experiences alongside the live video.

The Amazon IVS console and APIs for control and creation of video streams are available in the US East (N. Virginia), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Europe (Frankfurt), and Europe (Ireland) regions. Video ingest and delivery are available around the world over a managed network of infrastructure optimized for live video. Amazon IVS chat is available in US East (N.
