Amazon Chime SDK

Embed proven real-time communication capabilities in your applications.

The Amazon Chime SDK is a set of real-time communications components that developers can use to quickly add messaging, audio, video, and screen sharing capabilities to their web or mobile applications. Developers can leverage the same communication infrastructure and services that power Amazon Chime, an online meetings service from AWS, and deliver engaging experiences in their applications. For instance, they can add video to a health application so patients can consult with doctors on health issues remotely, or create customized audio prompts for integration with the public telephone network. By using the Amazon Chime SDK, developers can help eliminate the cost, complexity, and friction of creating and maintaining their own real-time communication infrastructure and services.

Pay a single rate per minute per user, regardless of audio calling, video calling, or screen sharing features delivered.

Extend your applications

Integrate with other AWS services to extend application functionality. Enable phone users to dial into media sessions by integrating with Amazon Chime Voice Connector. Then stream audio with Amazon Kinesis Video Streams for transcription using Amazon Transcribe or sentiment analysis using Amazon Comprehend. Capture meeting events in real-time with Amazon EventBridge, Amazon Simple Queue Service or Amazon Simple Notification Service and trigger event-based workflows.
