Not just JioMart, Reliance Jio will soon launch JioMeet for video calls in India
With JioMart, Reliance Jio is working on its own video calling platform called JioMeet. The company soon announced the commercial launch of JioMeet in India. JioMeet has been in the testing process for a long time and the company has cleverly chosen a time to launch the platform for everyone when working remotely and self-quarantine became common thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic.
Reliance Jio has not revealed when JioMeet will launch but is very much dependent on the video call being given to everyone, to connect with the world we can expect a rollout in a few weeks or even days. Reliance Jio with JioMeet is definitely aiming for other popular existing video calling platforms such as Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, and more. Jio will reveal more details about JioMeet in the coming days such as how the video call will work, the number of participants for each video call, and so on.
Last week, Reliance Industries Limited, Jio Platforms, and Facebook announced the signing of binding agreements for an investment of Rs 43,574 crore by Facebook in Jio Platforms. Facebook’s investment will translate into a 9.99 percent equity stake in Jio platforms on a fully diluted basis.
Jio and Facebook have already partnered with JioMart, an e-commerce platform that is currently undergoing trials. Jio says the partnership will enable new opportunities for businesses of all sizes, but especially for small businesses across India. This is because it will “create new and exciting digital ecosystems that will empower, enrich, and uplift the lives of all 1.3 billion Indians.”
For JioMart, Jio Platforms and WhatsApp have entered into a commercial partnership agreement to further accelerate Reliance Retail’s new commerce business. JioMart is integrated with WhatsApp to ensure that consumers are able to use the nearest grocery that can deliver products and services to their homes by seamlessly transacting with JioMart using WhatsApp.
Testing has begun and the companies have announced a phone number that consumers need to save on their mobile phone and then send a message. Automated messaging will guide consumers through the online shopping process. The service is currently being tested in parts of Maharashtra. We can expect a commercial launch very soon.
Amidst the coronavirus epidemic, Jio also partnered with Microsoft platforms and enabled all-at-home initiatives, work from home, learn from home, and health at home.
