Sunil Tirumalai of Credit Suisse, speaking about the app, said that, “Unlike other free communication apps, Jio makes it easy for people to connect together via Call or SMS for free. It just needs a good data connection to have ease connecting each other.”

“We have tested the app already, we believe that the call quality and clarity is normal, and no issues while communicating for a long time. However, a few things could be disappointed for customers as it uses around Rs. 0.25 data per minute, whereas normally it takes Rs. 0.65+. It consumes data more quicker and if the developers provide operators a more less call-per-minute rate, then definitely customers would love it.”.. Sunil added to the statement.

Reliance Jio Chat App Features: What makes it a dominating Beast

Some of the main / key features of Jio Chat are listed below.

  • Instant Messages: Stay connected with your friends, send messages instantly. It is not boring one – send cool stickers (thousands), emotions, doodle and hand-drawn art with a push of a button.
  • Video Call: You have not seen this feature before in any smartphone app. Though apps were only limited to voice calls. But the barrier has been broken by the latest app which offers customers free Video calling feature. This could be a cutting edge component of its market success.
  • Channels: You can create your own channel which other Jio Chat users can follow, or you can follow others’ channels. In addition, you can find your favorite celebrity on this app and send them messages, see their pictures, etc. (It is not like Instagram.)
  • Jio Drive : You can also store your private photos and videos in Jio Drive. And access them whenever you need in the future.

“This is not a perfect end-piece, it still will develop and more features will be added in future. We will also launch another franchise of Jio such as (online music store, WiFi hotspots and handsets etc.). Another thing I would like to mention is the Reliance 4G, which could be released anytime soon late end of 2015. It will not take a long time, opposite to what we hear that people are assuming 4G launch in mid 2016.”
