Reliance Jio introduced JioMeet, their answer to Zoom. The telecom company of Mukesh Ambani launched its video conferencing service on Thursday night with little fanfare, and its applications are already available on Google Play and the App Store. Reliance Jio has launched its first new product after a nonstop run of funding updates, and it is joining the ring against Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, and other common video conferencing devices.
JioMeet allows direct calling (1:1 calling) and holding meetings of up to 100 attendees. The software provides enterprise-grade host controls according to Reliance Jio. You can sign up with your phone number or email ID and HD quality is sponsored by the meetings. It is free to use and you can create unlimited meetings every day, as well as password protection for the meetings and help a waiting room like Zoom.
Between April and June, Reliance Jio saw a spree of fundraising beginning with a Facebook deal in which Jio’s social network gained 9.99 percent. Today, the telecommunications giant has released its first new product in a while, and apart from promoting use directly via your browser (but only if you’re using Chrome or Firefox), there are also applications for Windows, Mac, iOS, and Ios — you can find the links on the Jio site.
The application has a very basic interface — which really looks like a fair bit like Zoom — but a fast check showed it appears to work much like the other leading applications. JioMeet says the app supports multi-device login support, on up to five devices, and you can switch between devices seamlessly while on call. There is also the Safe Driving Mode app, as well as standard features such as screen sharing.
While the app is now available to the public, Jio had been testing it for a few months and you can see reviews on Google Play showing how it used to need an invite code. Everything you need to do now though is signed up for JioMeet.
In terms of subscribers, Reliance Jio continues at the top spot as the largest telecom service, adding more than 62 lakh recently. Jio has moved ahead of only providing telecommunication services. Sometime in 2019, Ambani made it clear that Jio’s ambitions weren’t restricted to just telecom. It will be artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things ( IoT), blockchain, online gaming, video sharing, multi-party video conferencing, augmented reality (AR), virtual reality ( VR) and mixed reality (MR), e-commerce, shopping, safety, etc.
