JioMeet is an upcoming enterprise video and remote communication service which is going to allow up to 100 users to connect over the video call at the same time. While announcing the company’s quarterly earnings, Jio revealed its plan specific to video calling service which is going to compete against Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Google Meet.
In its press release, Jio said – Jio platforms to launch a nationwide video platform called JioMeet. Jio did not offer the exact launch timeline. But we can expect JioMeet app to be launched pretty soon across Android, iOS and web.
The app was briefly spotted on Google Play Store but as of writing this story, the app listing has apparently been taken down. This is an indication that the JioMeet app is ready to go live anytime now.
JioMeet free and paid versions
JioMeet will be a mix of enterprise and individual communication platform. It will let users choose between free and paid versions. The free version of JioMeet is going to offer features that are similar to video-calling functionality on the company’s existing JioChat app. JioMeet free version will also allow up to five users to connect over the call, much like JioChat.
Features of JioMeet paid versions
Now, let’s talk about the features of JioMeet paid, enterprise version. Business users can call up to 100 people. They can easily share conference links with their co-workers through email, SMS, or other messaging apps. Users can call pre-registered video conference (VC) systems. They can even join a conference without having to sign up or log in using mobile apps or Chrome browser. Jio also says all meetings are PIN protected. So we can expect Jio is making the password-protection mandatory for all meetings.
JioMeet is going to offer host controls. For example, if you are a host, you can easily control the participants’ audio and video feeds. Similar to Zoom, JioMeet hosts can selectively disconnect participants or end the entire meeting.
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 their focus towards enterprise communication.
Over the past few weeks, consumption of enterprise video communication apps and services like Zoom and Microsoft Teams continue to witness an increase in overall consumption.
