3 July, 2020 | Ojasvi Chauhan
Reliance Jio has released its own video conferencing app called 'JioMeet'. The app has been launched with the ambition of replacing Zoom, not only in India but hopefully, globally as well.
JioMeet has been released by Reliance Jio, as an alternative to Zoom. The telecom company, led and owned by Mukesh Ambani, has launched its own video conference app on Google Play and App Store. After a plethora of updates on the funding, Reliance Jio has finally released its first product and it’s entering the tech arena to give a stiff competition to Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, and other popular video conferencing tools.
JioMeet features direct calls (1:1 calling), meetings and can handle up to 100 participants. Reliance Jio says that the app also has enterprise-grade host controls. You can register with your phone number or email ID, and then experience meetings in HD quality. JioMeet is completely free to download and you can create as many meetings as you want per day, which can be password protected. It also has a waiting room like Zoom.
Unlike Zoom, which has a 40-minute time limit, you can host a meeting for as long as required with no interruptions. The app also supports multi-device login up to 5 devices. The app supports screen sharing and has a safe driving mode feature as well. The user interface of this app has been reviewed to be good and it works just like other leading video conferencing apps.
