Your Amazon Chime Guide to re:Invent 2018


It’s our favorite time of year at AWS! It’s the excitement of knowing that after the holiday dining is done, we fly to Las Vegas to meet with you! re:Invent provides us a great opportunity to hear from you and share with you what we’re working on.

Amazon Chime is one of the newer services that you can learn about this year at re:Invent.  Amazon Chime lets you meet, chat, and collaborate in a secured AWS environment. You can work seamlessly across your devices to stay connected and meet on the go. Also, you pay only for the features that you use and can switch between free and paid offerings as needed. Most businesses, likely including yours too, already have investments in collaboration tools. So join us to learn how Amazon Chime can help you take advantage of the cloud to create an efficient, collaborative experience, and lower your costs.
