On Thursday that is just yesterday, the Indian Telecom Giant — formally launched JioMeet, its video-conference service.
Like Zoom and Google Meet, JioMeet presents an infinite variety of free calls in HD (720p) to customers and allows up to 100 individuals in a name. But apparently, it’s not putting up any sort of call time limits. Jio Platforms says a call may be “up to 24 hours” long. The service at the moment has no paid plans and it’s unclear if Jio will change that in the near future.
Jio Platforms, which started beta testing JioMeet in May this yr, mentioned the video conferencing service presents “enterprise-grade” host controls. These services include password safety on every call, multi-device login support (up to 5 gadgets), and the flexibility to share screen and collaborate with team members.
Other options include the ability to modify seamlessly from one device to another, and a ‘Safe Driving Mode’ for when a participant is in commute. Hosts also can allow a ‘waiting room’ to make sure individuals need to ask for permission to enter a call.
JioMeet is out there to be used by Chrome and Firefox browsers on desktop, in addition to standalone apps for macOS, Windows, iOS, and Android. It additionally has an Outlook plugin.
Earlier this yr, Jio executives had described JioMeet as a platform that they assume would sometime have options to allow docs to seek the advice of their patients, prescribe them medication, and have a system in place to allow them to purchase medicines on-line and get check outcomes digitally.
Similarly, they mentioned JioMeet will enable lecturers to host digital lecture rooms for his or her college students, with the power to document classes, assign and accept homework, and conduct assessments digitally.
The launch of JioMeet at the moment comes as lakhs of Indians are working from home and utilizing video conferencing services for work and to remain in contact with associates.
Also with the ongoing tussle of boycotting Chinese Apps, Jio Meet is all set to replace Zoom and become the largest Video Conferencing Platform in India
