For a free service, JioMeet is literally punching way above its weight when it comes to functionality. Plus, it also seems easy to use.
Reliance Jio’s JioMeet video-conferencing platform is officially out of beta. Jio Meet is now available for all users as a free mobile application on Android and iOS, and as a standalone desktop website accessible on both Windows and Mac. With it, Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) is looking to take on rivals like Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams and others, all of which are seeing a surge in usage as more and more people are forced to stay cooped up inside their homes in the wake of the novel coronavirus outbreak.
JioMeet is free to use and it is also made in India, two factors that definitely give it an edge over peers. But what’s more interesting about it is that Jio isn’t compromising with the feature set. For a free service, JioMeet is literally punching way above its weight when it comes to functionality. Plus, it also seems easy to use. No wonder, the app already has 10,000+ downloads on Android, only hours after it went live. Previously, Jio Meet was available for a limited number of users in beta.
JioMeet will let you video call simultaneously with up to 100 people and there are virtually no time limits. Each video call can go “uninterrupted” for up to 24 hours and you’re free to have as many as you want every day. Conferencing chops like scheduling and screen sharing are also available in JioMeet.
Hosts can sign up with either a mobile number or email ID, send out invite links, and password protect their meetings to keep meetings safe from prying eyes. JioMeet also offers waiting rooms for hosts so they can precisely control who can enter, and who needs to wait.
