Zoom & # 39; s the newest challenger: Private internet budget Mukesh Ambani


Zoom, one of the few success stories of the Covid-19 tragedy, is now facing a new challenge in a program sponsored by the richest Asian Mukesh Ambani. Ambani-based industry, which generates billions of dollars of Facebook to Intel for its digital businesses, launched JioMeet's video chat program after beta testing. The app has already used more than 100,000 downloads on the Google Play Store when it becomes available Thursday evening.

Like Google Meet, Microsoft Teams and other services, JioMeet offers unlimited high-quality calls – but unlike Zoom, it does not impose a 40-minute limit. Calls can continue for up to 24 hours, and all meetings are kept confidential. The launch coincided with the banning of dozens of popular programs from the Chinese tech group.

The app is just one aspect of Ambani's speedy digital empire, including India's largest telecommunications company with nearly 400 million users. "JioMeet is going to be a huge and trusted distraction in the field," Utkarsh Sinha, Bexley's general counsel, said. "The fact that they have no time limit for calls poses a serious challenge for Zoom, although it is blocked."

Jio Platforms is assembling a wide range of services ranging from music transfer to online retail and payments, quickly transforming the e-commerce book that can take Google and Amazon into their home console.

JioMeet also talks about a time when Zoom users accused the service of a security flaw.

He is accused of allying with China after destroying the & # 39; s accounts of American and Hong Kong lobbyists, which are said to be designed to comply with Chinese law.
