JioMeet, from the house of Reliance Jio, is a free video-conferencing application, that can also host meetings with up to a hundred participants along with video-calling.
JioMeet is available on Android and iOS, and might soon be also available on Web but currently, the website does not function. Users can also use JioMeet on Windows, Mac, SIP/H.323 systems.
The application has the commonly known features of video-conferencing apps such as sign up with a mobile number or email ID, scheduling meetings, unlimited password-protected meetings in a day that can go up to 24 hours, multi-device login support, and more.

With containment measures in place globally, not just in India, video-calling apps have enabled collaborations and has helped the working population carry on remotely.
Video-conferencing and usage of the apps that support it have observed a huge upsurge since the beginning of the pandemic. It lead to Facebook and more players introducing apps such as Messenger Rooms and also turned Zoom into an overnight hit.
JioMeet has created quite a buzz on Twitter since its launch today, but for the most part for the wrong reasons. The whole app seems to have been heavily duplicated from Zoom.
Everything from the user interface, vector logos used, landing page, options, and more seems to be a replica of Zoom.
