In the past few months, the need for video calling apps has increased multi-fold. WhatsApp, JIO, Duo, Google Meet, and now we have a new entrant. Reliance is planning to launch a personal and Enterprise version of their in house video calling solution—JioMeet. The announcement was briefly revealed in the company’s quarterly earnings this week.
JioMeet Enterprise to take on Video Calling app with 100 users simultaneous connection
More details about the JioMeet came into light when there was an accidental listing of the app (now deleted) on Google Play Store seen by TheWindowsClub. Looking at the description, it is clear that 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 Personal Features
Simial to the rest of the video calling apps, individual users will be able to use JioMeet up to five users to connect over the call. It is similar to JioChat App.
I am guessing it may work only Jio Numbers for general consumers, but Jio has ye to make this clear with time.
JioMeet Enterprise Features
The primary consumers for JioMeet are going to be Enterprise. A lot of apps already have a presence in this section, but JioMeet is going to make its difference with these features
- 100 Business users can make a video call
- Invites can be sent via email, SMS or other messaging apps
- Call pre-registered video conference (VC) system, i.e., support to join over a call.
- Most of the users need not to sign-in to Join a conference. A Mobile or Chrome browser should be enough.
- PIN-protected meetings
- Host controls to control the participants’ audio, video feeds for both personal and Enterprise.
Jio Promises that that calls will not drop even if you are on the move and are passing by a low data network zone. The app will downgrade the quality but will make sure the connection is stable.
JioMeet should use the strong backbone of JioFiber, which has been laid out throughout the country.
Now that more and more people are working from home, and would like to connect to clients, family, and meeting over this video calls, the competition is even more critical. In the coming times, we will see even the internet speed and reliability getting better, and they will not be just for the Enterprise, but also for other consumers. The Enterprise consumers have moved home for a while; it’s essential they what is expected.
