Mobile devices have modified the way we usually work. Thanks to the latter, we can work on-site without losing communication with our teammates and improving our productivity. Many developers realized this fact some time ago, and that's why apps of the likes of Slack are becoming more and more common.
Amazon's chat and video conference app
And nobody's saying that you can't use it to create groups and establish video conferences with your friends but Amazon Chime has been basically developed so that you and your team can be connected in a quick, fluid and safe manner. Compatible with several systems apart from iOS (Windows, macOS, and Android), it allows you to keep in touch and share any aspect regarding the development of your project that you consider necessary.
Amazon also wants to be present at work.
The app comes along with different functions available on all operating systems:
- Video conferences with up to 8 participants from mobile devices.
- Chat and instant messaging function to communicate with your workmates.
- Chat rooms to include all the team members and share thoughts on ongoing projects.
- Simple and fluid system to share files.
- Function to indicate a user status by means of a color code.
Safety and control
And for all work environments, there's always an unnegotiable condition: security. That's why its developers have put special emphasis on developing a safe system that you can trust, with 256-bit AES encryption so that all the information shared via Chime is done so as securely as possible. Everything is encrypted: text, files, video, audio...
In turn, through a simple control panel, we'll abe able to manage every single aspect, from who is part of each group to all sorts of activity reports. Let's see if it can become a Slack killer.
