Amazon Chime is a communications service from Amazon Web Services with a built-in VoIP solution. Amazon Chime can be used for online meetings, video conferencing, and business calling, and features pay-as-you-go pricing.
As part of Amazon Chime, Amazon Chime Voice Connector is a service that carries voice traffic over the internet and scales to meet capacity needs. This allows users to eliminate fixed telephone network costs and simplify their voice network administration by transitioning it to the AWS Cloud.
Amazon Chime call me: With Amazon Chime call me, users simply enter their phone number in the web application and answer the incoming call to join a meeting.
Join Meetings with Alexa: Users can simply say “Alexa, start my meeting”, and Alexa gets the meeting started using Alexa for Business’s functionality with Amazon Chime.
Incoming Web Hooks: Developers can configure their applications to use incoming webhooks to post messages into Amazon Chime chat rooms.
Chat Bots: Users can create custom chat bots in chat rooms. Participants can interact directly with chat bots to provide access to corporate applications and information, and to automate common tasks.
Switch Between Devices: From the Chime application, users can switch active calls between mobile and desktop devices without interrupting the conversation.
Though mobile app navigation is easy it lacks some of the features. Screen sharing is easy and new person can join without any lag.
Microsoft Teams, hangout meets and Zoom, all are good with their own standpoint. All have pros and cons if compared to each other. Amazon is good for amazon and Microsoft is good with Microsoft. Google hangout is universally good and zoom is all-rounder but expensive.

However we selected this for the single dashboard for chat, calling, meeting and messaging specifically on phone app. There is a very simple interface with a minimum of clicks to launch the sub-app.

1. UberConf. This was the first conference software we used. It used to be great, it actually had a free version that worked perfectly. Then the service started to falter, mostly lag time between user and presenter. And then, the final straw, during someone in my offices' call, you heard the words "You must upgrade to continue to use the service" and it kept going in a loop. Ridiculous.
Skype and GoTo I use when my clients want to use it. I just do not like them because you have to download software on both sides. Very annoying and can make people late for a meeting.
