AWS re:Invent 2023 – Exciting News about AWS Chime SDK and Amazon Connect
The AWS Chime SDK team is now a part of Amazon Connect. What used to take a ton of effort to integrate, e.g. placing the Click to Call widget into Amazon Connect, should now be much easier.
I just came back from AWS re:Invent 2023, one of the biggest and most exciting tech conferences of the year. It was a week full of learning, networking, and fun. I got to meet many of our AllCode partners, attend some amazing sessions, and even meet up with Don Marks, an old soccer buddy, at Top Golf. He even took a picture with Shooter McGavin.
In this page, I want to share with you some of the key takeaways and insights that I gained from the conference. These are the topics that I think will have the most impact on your communication applications and how you can leverage the power of AWS to build them:
Amazon Connect integration with the Amazon Chime SDK
This is a game-changer for contact centers and customer support. You can now easily integrate web-based calls and in-app calls from your website or mobile app into your call center using the Amazon Chime SDK, which is natively supported in Amazon Connect. This will enable you to provide a seamless and consistent customer experience across different channels and devices.
Enabling custom Click to Call and In-App calling with the Amazon Chime SDK
While the new integration is great for many use cases, you might need more customization and flexibility for your specific workflows and contexts. That’s why we can help you build a custom integration using the Amazon Chime SDK and Amazon Connect, combining the best of both worlds. We have done this for many clients in different industries, such as telehealth, e-commerce, and education.
After careful evaluation of your infrastructure, we will present a feasible optimization plan spanning your technology stack, software workflows, and human resources workload.

Generative AI, Conversational AI, and Amazon Lex for chatbots
Chatbots are becoming more intelligent and natural thanks to generative AI and conversational AI. You can now use Amazon Lex to build a chatbot by simply typing a paragraph of what you want and letting the generative AI do the rest. You can also use Amazon Lex to create voice applications that can interact with your customers via text or speech, using the same conversational AI capabilities of Alexa Skills.
Voice applications with Alexa Smart Properties
Voice is a powerful and intuitive interface that can enhance the user experience and accessibility of your applications. You can use Alexa Smart Properties to manage and control an extensive network of Alexa devices across different locations and scenarios. You can also use WebRTC with Alexa devices to build custom Alexa skills that can connect to traditional telephony and call centers or to other phones or custom applications.
