Reliance Jio is all set to launch JioMeet, an enterprise video communication platform that allows up to 100 users to connect at the same time. Jio briefly revealed its plans for JioMeet while announcing the company’s quarterly earnings this week, without yielding specific details about its upcoming video platform. In its recent press release, Jio said:
“Jio platforms to launch a nationwide video platform called JioMeet.”
Reliance to launch JioMeet
According to the app listing (now deleted) seen by TheWindowsClub, JioMeet will be a mix of enterprise and individual communication platform, which will compete with the likes of Zoom, Microsoft Teams, and Google Meet.
JioMeet to offer free and paid versions
JioMeet will let users choose from free and paid versions. The free version of the JioMeet video conferencing app offers features that are similar to video-calling functionality on the company’s existing JioChat app. JioMeet free version will allow up to five users to connect over the call, much like JioChat. Meanwhile, let’s take a look at JioMeet’s enterprise features.
Enterprise (paid) features of JioMeet
- Business users can call up to 100 people
- Share conference link with others via email, SMS or other messaging apps
- Call pre-registered video conference (VC) systems
- Join a conference without registering or logging in using mobile apps or Chrome browser
- Safe and secure – All meetings are PIN protected
“We ensure that your call does not drop even when you are on the move and are passing by a low data network zone. Call is automatically downgraded to lower quality.”
JioMeet also offers several call host controls to control the participants’ audio, video feeds. Similar to Zoom, JioMeet hosts can selectively disconnect participants or end the entire meeting.
Meanwhile, we have come across a subdomain on the Jio website (jiomeet.jio.com), which will host the JioMeet platform. But the web page is fairly basic at the moment and it only reveals what appears to be the JioMeet logo. It says:
“Thank you for your interest in JioMeet.”
Meanwhile, jiomeet.com also points to jiomeet.jio.com subdomain.
The work-from-home transition has resulted in companies around the world relying heavily on remote communication services. Recently, Google rebranded Hangouts as Google Meet to streamline its branding and to swiftly divert its focus towards enterprise communication.
Over the past few weeks, consumption of enterprise video communication apps and services such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams continue to witness a surge in overall consumption.
