JioMeet was formally launched on Thursday 2nd July 2020 by India’s Reliance Jio which is backed by Mukesh Ambani. Reliance Jio recently concludes a $15.2 Billion fundraise form companies like Facebook and Intel and is now ready to enter the competitive market of video conference apps, ready to take on giants like Zoom and Google meet.
At launch, JioMeet’s features and the user interface is very similar to zoom. One can also say that it is zoom in a beta phase with the potential to be better. Let’s see how zoom compares with other video conference services like Zoom and Google Meet.
JioMeet supports all major platforms but it does not have a dedicated app for the Linux platform. Zoom has superior platform support as it supports all major platforms at the moment. While google meet does not have a dedicated app for Windows Mac OS and Linux but the can be sill be accessed through their respective web browsers.
JioMeet supports HD audio and video calls up to 100 participants, with a duration of 24 hours for free unlike Zoom and google meet which have a duration limit of 40mins and 60 mins respectively.

Security and privacy
Both JioMeet and Zoom require a meeting id and password by default before you can join the meeting. But there are many privacy and security concerns regarding zoom that the company itself has admitted. Many companies have even banned their employees from using Zoom for Company related work. To address its security concerns Zoom has promised to provide end to end encryption in an update which is expected to release in July 2020.
