It has been barely a month since Airtel introduced a service for its users in Delhi-NCR where they could switch from LTE based network to a Wi-Fi-based network that its competitor Reliance Jio has launched a similar service. This service too lets users make voice and video calls over Wi-Fi networks. Jio claims that this service has been tested over the recent past few months to provide users with a good experience while engaged in calls at home or office. Now, Customers are empowered to use any Wi-Fi network to enable Jio Wi-Fi calls. Users can now switch between VoLTE and Wi-Fi networks effortlessly to enable quality voice and video calling experiences.
“At this juncture, when an average Jio consumer uses over 900 minutes of voice calls every month, and at a growing base of consumers, the launch of Jio Wi-Fi Calling will further enhance every Jio consumer’s voice-calling experience, which is already a benchmark for the industry with India’s-first all VoLTE network,” Reliance Jio Director Akash Ambani said.
Recent rumours suggest that Reliance Jio is now working a feature phone with one function in mind. It is believed that this feature phone will be called the “Jio Phone Lite” and will only support the making and attending of voice calls. It is believed that the phone will be priced below Rs 399 and will come equipped to make voice calls only. The device is expected to have a small display with an alphanumeric keyboard. Rumours also suggest that post-launch of the device, Jio will launch exclusive plans like a Rs 50 plan enabling unlimited voice calls from the Jio phone lite. It is not yet confirmed if this phone is really going to be launched or if it’s a rumour that has no base in reality. Reliance Jio has not made any official announcement about the Jio phone lite.
