- For entertainment, Reliance Jio offers apps like JioTV, JioCinema, JioSaavn and more
With its foray into the telecom industry back in 2016, the Mukesh Ambani led telecom operator Reliance Jio has changed the face of the industry. The telco introduced uber-cheap tariff plans for the subscribers, reduced the prices of data packs and also made calling and SMS virtually free for the users. However, with this turn, Reliance Jio also popularised the concept of freebies and content offerings for its subscribers and to make that possible, the telco released a handful of applications. With these applications, the customers of Reliance Jio could access content and service, which were often otherwise paid. The result of this move was a flourishing portfolio of apps from Reliance Jio, which was liked by the subscribers. Out of all of these apps which Reliance Jio offers, we have picked five, which we think that every subscriber of Jio must have on their phone.
The MyJio Self Care App
It goes without saying that if you are using a Reliance Jio SIM then you will have to recharge your number once in a while or maybe in a month, and the Reliance Jio MyJio app is the best way to do it. The application offers an easy way to recharge via multiple payment options, and also provides cashbacks as well to the users. Additionally, the users will be able to see their data balance, check plan validity, know about the latest offers, services and do much more with the app.
JioSaavn for All Your Music Needs
You might know Saavn as a music streaming application from long back when it wasn’t acquired by Reliance Jio, but now that it has been, the app has only gotten better. JioSaavn is the best way for Reliance Jio users to stream music, listen to their favourite artists and more. The application offers features like lyrics, playlists, and also boasts of an extensive library. Also, you can decide to browse the app in multiple languages. In case you use the JioSaavn app often and would like to access features like save offline and no ads then you can also go for a premium subscription.
JioTV for Live TV Access
Live TV applications are all the craze in the market and Reliance Jio has followed the industry footsteps closely. The JioTV app gives easy access to the users to catch their favourite TV shows on your smartphone. Major sports coverage and popular channels can easily be availed on JioTV and streamed in real-time.
JioCinema for On-Demand Content
JioCinema app is Reliance Jio’s answer to all the other video-on-demand and OTT apps in the market. Using JioCinema, you will be able to access multiple TV shows and movies. The app offers features like a watchlist, dock player, voice search, bitrate selection and more. In case you would like to make use of all the entertainment that Reliance Jio offers for free then a combination of JioTV and JioCinema on your phone will be enough to keep you busy.
JioMoney for Payment Solution
JioMoney is a fintech venture by Reliance Jio which facilitates easy online transaction for the users. With JioMoney, the users will be able to send or request money, pay bills and do recharges, make payments at retail stores, and receive coupons for their purchases.
In addition to all the above apps that we mentioned, Reliance Jio also offers other apps which might come handy for the users. These include JioBrowser, JioNews, JioChat, JioCloud for backing up files and data on the cloud, JioCall (previously Jio 4G Voice), JioSecurity, JioNet and JioHealthHub.
