Reliance Jio has announced to launch its own video calling app. Dubbed as JioMeet, the app will compete with other video calling tools like Zoom, Google Meet, WhatsApp, etc. In a time of coronavirus pandemic, the demand for video-calling apps has grown very much, so Jio’s step of launching such an app seems legit.
The company hasn’t announced any specific date on the rollout of the JioMeet. Nevertheless, a dedicated microsite is live now that has a message saying, “Thank you for your interest in JioMeet.”
Here’s everything that you need to know about the app.
JioMeet will support all platforms including iOS, Android, Windows, and macOS. So, users will be able to access this video-calling tool on their phones as well as on PCs. Also, it is expected to be free for all users.
Moreover, Jio’s latest tool will also be accessible through web browsers like Google Chrome, so there will be no need to download the software as well. Users will be able to log in using email IDs or join a meeting as a guest.
It is also reported that JioMeet will offer HD-quality video calling experience across platforms.
Users will be able to use JioMeet for video conferencing, as well as voice calling, and messaging. It will be loaded with stickers, emoticons and features like background change.
Following are some features that are said to be there on JioMeet when it launches:
Like most of the other video conference apps these days, JioMeet app will allow group calling to up to 100 participants.
Interestingly, the app will come with the integration of Jio’s healthcare platform. This feature will allow users to consult doctors online, book lab tests online, and more.
Another interesting feature, JioMeet is expected to have is an e-education platform. This will offer virtual classroom facilities for students with features like recorded classes, online notes and homework, and more.
This is not the first time when Jio has announced a video calling platform. To recall, the company had launched something similar on its JioChat app.
However, this JioMeet appears to focus only on video conferencing to take on the likes of Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom.
