                    Review ofAmazon ChimeAmazon Chime

                    It seems like this meeting software requires all users to download Amazon Chime.

                    To do that they have to confirm their email.

                    To install Amazon Chime they have to have an Amazon account.

                    If the email they entered earlier does not match their Amazon account email, then they have to confirm their email again.

                    Too many steps. It took about 20 steps to actually start a meeting. After that I had to walk someone else through the steps so that they could actually join me in the meeting. I sometimes need to do online meetings with clients who have zero technical skill.

                    Why do I have to add a contact before inviting them to my meeting? Just let me invite people to my meeting.

                    Too time consuming.

                    The interface is bulky.

                    They force all new users to join the free pro trial and then try to upsell once trial is over.

                    It auto-starts when Windows starts and I cannot find a setting to turn this off.

                    Cannot be seemlessly integrated in a web app.

                    I never thought I would say this but Skype does a better job even though it is difficult to close and displays annoying ads.

                    Amazon Chime seems like a poorly implemented Skype knock-off created in a dorm room without all of Skypes features.

                    Maybe the backend is amazing, but smooth video streaming doesn't matter if the user is still jumping through hoops.

                    For the times Skype is not "Corporate" enough, there's Webex.
