THE APP :
JioMeet provides unrestricted free high resolution contact numbers (720p) to apps like Zoom and Google Meet and allows up to 100 members in a single call. Ironically, though, a fixed time period for a call does not appear to be enforced. Jio Platforms claims that a free call will take “up to 24 hours” without interruption. This is not clear if Jio network, which is renowned for providing services for years free, is going to alter it. At the moment the app does not have any paying schedules.
Jio Platforms, who launched the JioMeet beta test in May of this year, said the software provides “enterprise-level” host controls. These include the ability to share screens and collaborate: crossword protection on every call, the support for multi-device login (up to five devices).
Additional characteristics include “apparently” switching from one device to another and a “safe driving mode” for a participant on the road.
Hosts will also allow a ‘waiting area’ for the participants to be asked to ask for approval to make a call. There was no more detail from the organization about how people outside India might utilize the service.
JioMeet reports on its website that all communications are “safe,” but does not specify whether such calls are authenticated in full.
JioMeet, is a forum that they hope will be able to treat physicians, prescribe medication and have a program in place to enable patients to purchase medication digitally and get digital tests. Similarly, JioMeet said that it would require the teachers, who can document sessions, delegate and approve homework and perform training online, to host their students’ virtual classes.
JioMeet’s launch – accessible for mobile usage through Chrome and Firefox browsers, as well as applications for macOS, Windows, iOS, and Android as well as Outlook – coincides with the national ban on 59 chinese platforms like TikTok, ShareIt, UC Browser of the Alibaba Group and WeChat of Tencent.
