After raising more than 1 lakh 17 thousand crore rupees from 11 investors in 11 weeks, Jio Platforms launched video conferencing app Jiomeet on Thursday. It is available on Google Play and App Store. In addition to direct calls (1: 1 calling) support, a meeting can be held with 100 participants. Sign-up can be done through mobile number and email ID on the app.
What features will be available in Jiomeet
- Jiomeet allows the user to make unlimited free calls in high definition (720 pixels resolution). It can add up to 100 participants at a time.
- It is completely free. All meeting passwords will be protected and it also has waiting room support like the zoom app.
- The company says that the app supports multi-device (up to 5 devices) login, users will be able to easily switch from one device to another during calling.
Neither code nor invoice required
No code or invoice will be required to initiate the call. However, people who are connecting with the desktop version of the app can click on the Jiomeet Invite link and become part of the video call from their browser without downloading the app. It also has features like scheduling meeting, screen share with each other.
Jiomeet on desktop
In addition to Android and iOS phones, users working on desktop can access the video conferencing platform through Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. It is absolutely free.
This is how you can download
- On mobile device – Go to Play Store / App Store, search Jiomeet App and download it.
- On the desktop – go to this site and download the Jiomeet application.
Can it provide credibility?
The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) warned the zoom app users that the app is not safe for use. The Government of India then announced the Innovation Challenge to develop a video conferencing app in late April. The government wanted the developers to create an alternative to the zoom app. Prize money of 1 crore rupees was kept for the winner.
Jiomeet official website is claiming that all meetings will remain encrypted. However, Jiomeet will have to be ready to challenge other popular video conferencing platforms such as Zoom and Google Meet.
