Google Play Features Jio Apps on its Top Ten Free Applications

The Digital India initiative by the Indian Government was accepted as a welcome change. As per this initiative, Prime Minister Narendra Modi intends to digitize India and empower the citizens of the country. Telecom companies like Reliance Jio have joined hands with the Indian Government to support this movement. Mukesh Ambani led Jio, ever since its launch took the responsibility of providing affordable 4G services to customers. The first step in this direction was introducing the Jio Welcome Offer. This offer managed to add to the brand’s customer base by providing users with unlimited free data services and a suite of applications for three months. Additionally, Jio marked the revolution in the telecom sector by completely eliminating the costs associated with voice calls in the country. After the validity of the Jio Welcome Offer ends,  the company will be extending the same services under the Jio Happy New Year Offer until the end of March 2017.

Popular Jio apps on Google Play

Apart from the positive response that Jio’s high-speed 4G services have been garnering, its range of applications has also managed to capture the attention of customers to a large extent. Some of the Jio apps have been ranked high on the Google Play Store. Post Jio’s launch, MyJio has been the leading app on Google Play. Apart from this app, Jio4GVoice, JioTV, and JioCinema have also been listed among the top 10 apps on Google Play store. The MyJio app has so far witnessed about 50 to 100 million downloads. This high download rate, though, does not come as a surprise since Jio has an impressive customer base of more than 52 million users. The application also received around 7, 14,000 ratings on Google Play.

Among the list of free apps available, Jio4GVoice is the third leading app on Google Play Store. The app encompasses features like 4G video and voice calling. Users who do not have 4G-enabled devices can also use this app seamlessly. To avail of this facility, a user’s 3G or 2G smart phone must have a connection to the Web through Jio hotspot or a JioFi device. A user will then be easily able to engage in high definition (HD) video and voice calling facilities. Additionally, users with non-VoLTE 4G devices can also try this app, simply through a Jio SIM card. The Jio4GVoice app has received a rating of 4 stars and has recorded around 10 to 50 million downloads since its launch.  Moreover, JioTV and JioCinema apps rank at fourth and tenth positions on Google Play respectively.

A spokesperson of Jio stated the positive response that Jio apps have been gaining, which according to him is clearly evident in the download rate of the apps. He added that the company is also working towards introducing many such digital solutions to Indian customers. The spokesperson further said that the increase in the number of downloads explains that people are soon embracing the digital movement unfolding in the country.
