In what appears to be an attempt to expand its JioChat app users base, the Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio is offering freebies to users for app invites. Reportedly, Jio has sent out promotional messages to its subscribers recently urging them to invite their friends to JioChat — the telco’s own messaging app.
The telco is also offering JioFi 4G personal hotspot, Jio devices, and couple movie tickets as a gift for doing so. As per the reports, the offer has already begun (on November 28) and is valid until December 4, 2016.
To win these freebies, all you have to do is invite 5 friends to use JioChat app. That’s it. On successfully inviting friends to the app, users will get a couple movie ticket. Also, the top 5 users to invite largest number of friends will be given a JioFi 4G personal hotspot or other JioFi devices.
For those who are not in the know, JioChat app is one of the apps among the suite of apps that were launched by the telco along with the Welcome Offer. Like any other instant messaging app, the Jio’s chat app allows you to send text messages, images, videos, voice calling, and video calling.
Interestingly, there are a few more features that come along with the app which you can’t see on other IM apps like WhatsApp, Hike, Facebook Messenger, and Apple iMessage among others. We’ve already compared how these messaging apps stack against each other. You can take a look at it here.
Reliance Jio, as on November 26 has reportedly crossed 50 million subscribers surpassing the Bharti Airtel. It’s worth noting that the telco has achieved this feat in just 83 days from the launch of its services in the country.
