JioMeet Vs Zoom: Which Is Better And Why?
Reliance Jio has launched a homegrown alternative to the Zoom video conferencing platform called JioMeet. The video conferencing app is already available on the Google Play and Apple App Store. Like Zoom, the JioMeet offers one-on-one video calling as well as large group calls with up to 100 participants.
JioMeet and Zoom platforms have a couple of similarities and a bunch of differences. Although both provide video conferencing services, there are a few stark differences between the two. Here's an attempt to evaluate JioMeet Vs Zoom.
JioMeet Vs Zoom: Similarities
There are a couple of similarities between JioMeet and Zoom. Firstly, the design of the two video conferencing platforms. JioMeet has a simple interface and looks a lot similar to Zoom. While Zoom presents a light blue color, JioMeet highlights a dark blue shade.
Both JioMeet and Zoom support direct calls, including 1:1 calls as well as large groups of up to 100 participants. One of the reasons for Zoom's popularity is because it provides numerous enterprise-grade host controls. Zoom offering settings where participants can enter a meeting only if the host permits him to. Similar features can be found on JioMeet as well.
Further, both JioMeet and Zoom are free to up, at least up to 100 participants in a group. The meetings can be password-protected and both have the waiting room feature. The meetings can be held in HD quality as well.
JioMeet Vs Zoom: What’s Different
There are a couple of features that are exclusive to JioMeet. Reliance notes that the JioMeet app can support multi-device login support, on up to five devices, and you can seamlessly switch between devices while on a call. As the exclusive feature, JioMeet includes Safe Driving Mode to allow users to continue their meeting en route.
One of the major concerns about Zoom is its security infrastructure. Both on the app and the web, there were many instances of a security lapse. Incidents of ‘Zoom bombing', where persons unrelated to the group meet were spotted regularly. Further, Zoom introduced end-to-end encryption, but it came with a catch.
Zoom noted that only paid users would get the best security of the platform, while free users wouldn't. Nevertheless, Zoom introduced a couple of security upgrades, but there were unsatisfactory. Moreover, a lot of organizations and governments advised people to avoid using Zoom.
With JioMeet in the picture, there's still a lot we don't know about the platform. As JioMeet is now available to the public, we'll know how it operates and more about its functionality. For now, JioMeet seems like the go-to option against Zoom, especially because it comes as an Indian alternative.
