2017 - Amazon launched Skype for Business alternative to keep up with GoToMeeting
Amazon launched Chime, a video-conferencing service that will compete with Skype for Business and WebEx. Chime is provided by Amazon Web Services, the cloud-computing and storage division that makes up a big chunk of Amazon's business. The online meeting tool lets users switch between Mac, Windows, iOS and Android devices to use video-conferencing, screen-sharing, file-sharing and a chat feature. Chime costs $2.50 per month per user for a plan with screen sharing and use of a corporate directory, and $15 per month per user for a full plan that offers video meetings for up to 100 people — the version most businesses will need. A basic plan that allows video calls for two people and chat features is free. Since Chime is provided by the security-focused Amazon Web Services, the video-conferencing tool encrypts all communications and doesn't store chat history.
