India’s Reliance Jio Platforms, which lately concluded a $15.2 billion fundraise run, is prepared to enter a new business: Video conferencing.
On Thursday evening, the company — backed through Mukesh Ambani, India’s richest man — formally released JioMeet, its video-conference carrier that looks uncannily like Zoom.
Like Zoom and Google Meet, JioMeet gives unlimited quantity of loose calls in excessive definition (720p) to users and supports as many as a hundred participants on a call. But interestingly, it appears to no longer impose a short time restrict on a name’s duration. Jio Platforms says a free name can be uninterrupted for “as much as 24 hours” long. The service presently has no paid plans and it’s uncertain if Jio Platforms, which has a reputation of giving freely offerings without cost for years, plans to change that.
Jio Platforms, which began beta testing JioMeet in May this year, stated the video conferencing service gives “enterprise-grade” host controls. These encompass: password protection on every call, multi-device login support (up to five devices), and capacity to share display screen and collaborate.
Other capabilities consist of the ability to switch “seemingly” from one device to another, and a ‘Safe Driving Mode’ for whilst a participant is in commute. Hosts can also permit a ‘ready room’ to make sure participants need to ask for permission to go into a call.
