Mukesh Ambani – Reliance jio has finally launched a video calling app called jiomeet in the country. The app is available on apple’s app store as well as Android Google Play Store for downloads. With the launch of this application, Reliance jio is focusing to to grab the markets of other video conferencing platforms such as Skype, Microsoft teams, zoom and Google Meet.
The launch of the app is also at the perfect time when most of the people in the country are following the boycott China policy and discarding the products that are not made in India. After a few days of its launch, jio meet already has been rated as 4.8 and 4.6 on App Store and Google Play Store respectively and has already seen more than hundred thousand downloads by Android users. The application can host calls for more than 100 participants at the same time which can go on for 24 hours without any interruption and is password protected. The video calling service will not need a meeting ID or invite link for others to join the call. Jio maintaining its previous records by launching will not charge any fee for the usage of the app as of now.
However, one thing that is grabbing attention is the app’s interface which is exactly similar to that of zoom. Zoom is currently the most popular video conferencing app in India without 35 million monthly active users. Mukesh Ambani – The jio meet interface looks like and exact same copy of zoom with the blue accent. Clearly, in terms of free services jio holds an upper hand over zoom by allowing hundred members in a video call for 24 hours without any disturbance where as zoom allows only free one to one meetings and only 40 minutes for group meeting with more than three members. But at the same time if you look at the paid plans of zoom, they are somewhat more suitable for larger enterprises.
