JioMeet allows unlimited meeting hours

The widely used video-conferencing app, Zoom is about to face tough competition in the video communication market. The recent “Zoom is not a safe platform” concerns from several countries have questioned the security of the application. In India, motivated companies such as Bharti Airtel and Reliance (JioMeet) plan to soon launch their own video-conferencing platform for regular and business purposes.

Bharti Airtel

Primarily for businesses, Bharti Airtel will initially provide its branded video-conferencing service to companies that rose during the COVID-19 pandemic. Later, Airtel may launch the product for regular customers after assessing demand. The service will be available on mobile and desktop with the latest AES 256 encryption and multiple layers of authentication.

Airtel’s video-conferencing app will compete with Zoom, Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams, and Reliance Industries’ JioMeet. Airtel promises to prioritize data localization and security amid growing concerns over Zoom’s cybersecurity threats.

Airtel is focusing on high levels of security as the USP of the product, given the growing debate around cybersecurity as people work from home,” a source told the publication

Reliance’s JoiMeet

JioMeet, a video conferencing platform rolled out this week is the relief over many security concerns. The platform may behave as a top Indian alternative of Zoom and other video conferencing platforms. Here are five things a user need to know before using the app:

Signing up: JioMeet is available for all including a non-Reliance Jio subscriber. Users just need to sign up using their email ID or phone number.

100 participants: Just like Zoom and other platforms, JioMeet allows a user to host 100 participants in one go. This can be a great alternative for enterprises that talk to a large number of people simultaneously.

Interface: Similar to Zoom or any other video conferencing platform, the home screen has “new meeting”, “join”, “schedule”, “share screen” and other important shortcuts. During a session, the host can view the conversation in an active speaker layout. Reliance claims users get HD audio and video quality on JioMeet.

Unlimited, uninterrupted: The biggest USP of Reliance JioMeet video conferencing platform is that it does not cap the timing of a meeting. A user can host a meeting for up to 24 hours. There is no limit on the number of meetings user host in a day.

Others: Just like Zoom, a host can also enable the “waiting room” to ensure no one can join the session without the host’s consent. There is also a “safe driving mode” to alert the caller that a user is driving. JioMeet supports up to 5 devices for multi-login.
