Chime isn’t that Charming

I have been using GotoMeeting, Webex, Hangout, and Skype for group conferencing.  So when Amazon comes out with a video conferencing tool, I am excited to try…. until I see the pricing and features.

The pros include skipping of PIN and use of different devices (mobile / desktop) for the meeting.

 

Chime is available in three editions:

  • Amazon Chime Basic allows you make 1:1 voice and video calls, and to use chat and chat rooms, on all your devices
  • Amazon Chime Plus adds the ability for you to share your screen during meetings, and enables integration with your company directory
  • Amazon Chime Pro offers the full set of features for online meetings, including scheduling and hosting meetings, recording meetings, and personalized meeting URLs, for up to 100 people.

The basic edition should be FREE.  But it offers 1:1? no screen sharing?

Sorry, that kind of video conferencing solution may attract big corporation, but it is not charming any new budget users.
