by Shatakshi Gupta

Wait is now over, for the new video conferencing application which was supposed to be released by Reliance. This video conferencing platform is named as “JioMeet”, which seems to overtake other similar types of video conferencing apps such as Zoom, Google Meet and Microsoft Teams. This app, JioMeet, is available on both Google Play Store as well as App Store for downloading. In spite of the fact that there already exists, a number of tools for video conferencing, Jio sights to be the first choice for Indians. Previously, the beta version of the app was rolled out for developers but after rigorous testing the stable version of this app had been rolled for all Android and iOS users.

JioMeet can be accessed both from the web as well as from the mobile. While the app is readily available in the Play Store and App Store, the web version might take a while to function. When you visit the website of JioMeet, it reflects “coming soon”, which indicates that the web version will arrive in some time.

The JioMeet video conferencing app is supportive of up to 100 participants in a single call and it is absolutely free of cost. You can sign up using your mobile number or email ID and start a call. The app has some fascinating and absorbing features that could give it an edge over the intensely popular Zoom app. With JioMeet, you can host unlimited meetings in a day, each meeting can go uninterrupted up to 24hrs. This app also addresses the security and privacy issues by making all its meetings password protected, as stated by Jio. The host will also have the control of sending the uninvited guests to the “Waiting Room” in order to ensure that nobody gate-crashes the meeting.

Apart from this, there are some Zoom-like features in JioMeet including share screen features. There is also a mode called “Safe Driving Mode” which seems like a “Do Not Disturb” feature that we have in phones. This could mean that you will not get disturbed by the app if you switch on the Safe Driving Mode.

One more feature that can make JioMeet, the first preference video conferencing app for most of the people, is that it gives multi-device support, using which allows you can log in to 5 devices simultaneously. Even WhatsApp has been working on this feature from long time, but JioMeet already has it now. The multi-device support would allow users to log in to five different devices using a single ID. This feature would also let users seamlessly switch from one device to another while on a call.

The interface looks pretty simple and uncluttered, which also makes it fairly easy to use and host important calls. So let’s see whether JioMeet will be able to dethrone Zoom in India or not!
