Amazon has come up with its own video conferencing app – Chime for online meetings. The app comes as a competition to Microsoft’s Skype and Cisco’s WebEx.

Amazon Chime is a free to download app for iOS, Android, Windows and MacOS users.

With the prices falling in a higher bracket, Amazon Chime might find it hard to compete with Microsoft Skype and Cisco WebEx, both being established players in the Video-calling segment.

To start with, Amazon offers a free 30-day trial period to businesses to try the full Pro-service.
