Like other video calling apps, JioMeet would be released as a platform-agnostic solution, available across Android and iOS devices as well as on Windows and macOS computers.
Reliance Jio is preparing to launch its video calling app Jio Meet soon. This app will be launched to challenge video calling apps like Zoom, Google Meet, Hangout, Duo. Let me tell you that in the past, Facebook has partnered with Reliance Jio. One of the reasons behind bringing the Jio Meet video calling app can also be that the use of video calling has increased due to the Coronavirus lockdown in the country at this time. Due to increased use of video calling, video calling apps like Zoom can get challenged with Jio Meet.
Like other video calling apps, Jio Meet can also be made available for download on Android, iOS, and Web platforms. The JioMeet.com web page has been made alive by the company. However, no official information has been revealed about when the Jio Meet will be launched commercially. Through this app, users will be able to enjoy HD video calling. Through this app, video calls can be made to 5 people simultaneously.
Last month itself, the Home Ministry did not consider the Zoom video calling app to be a secure platform. Important guidelines were issued to the users to use this app. After this, Zoom has rolled out security updates to make the app secure. Apart from Zoom, Google has also made its Meet Premium video calling app free for users.
Jio Infocomm Senior Vice President Pankaj Pawar said, “We are just a few days away from rolling it out for Indian users.” Through this app, users will be able to use this app in a very safe way as well as in a very safe environment. Jio Meet will be a platform that can work on any device, can work on any operating system. This app will be completely suitable for collaboration.
He added that this app will not only be restricted to video conferencing but will be integrated with other platforms such as Jio’s eHealth and education. eHealth app will enable users to consult doctors virtually, get prescriptions, place medicine orders, and enable digital waiting rooms for doctors. The education platform will help in creating virtual classrooms, record sessions, assign and submit homework, organize tests, and so on. Pawar said that while the app will integrate multiple platforms, it will be super easy to navigate so that everyone can use the app.
Jio will bring JioMeet as a platform-agnostic solution that would be available across Android and iOS devices as well as on Windows and macOS computers. The video conferencing solution will also be accessible on Outlook through a plugin or even via Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, reports Hindustan Times. It is also claimed to offer HD-quality experience across devices. Furthermore, users will be able to log in using email ID and passwords or join a video conference as a guest.
The listings of the JioMeet app on the Apple App Store and Google Play were spotted shortly after the official announcement. However, at the time of publishing this story, the company had pulled the listings. A dedicated microsite (jiomeet.jio.com) that was detailing the key features of the platform also received an update with a screen showing a message that says, “Thank you for your interest in JioMeet.”
