We all know that Reliance JIO will soon launch large screen smartphones in India. Before that, Jio has launched a new browser available via Google Play for Android devices. The app is touted to be a ‘fast and lite’ solution for web browsing. The Jio Browser app’s default language is English. However, there are options for various other Indian languages as well. This is a perfect play by Reliance Jio to attract Indian customers to this app. The languages available are Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Tamil and Telugu. The app has features such as Incognito and the ability to share stuff with your friends on social media.
Talking of language options, once you change the default language of the browser to your required one, you will not only see a change in the interface elements, but also the content in news articles, social media websites. The home page of the Jio Browser showcases news articles from various news channels, too. The news is available from a wide range of categories, namely entertainment, politics, sports etc.
The default apps in the browser’s homepage include MyJio, BookMyShow, A Jio, Amazon.in, Flipkart, NDTV and many more. There is a videos tab which you can move while watching videos on-the-go. The Jio Browser app, unlike the Opera Mini does not generate cached webpage, because of which the latter provides a faster browsing experience. Just like any other browser, this one has the option to bookmark different URLs.
As mentioned, the Reliance Jio Browser can directly be downloaded from Google Play. Bad luck for the ones who possess Android 4.0 Kitkat OS and below since the app is only available for phones which run on Android 5.0 Lollipop and above. The size of the app is 4.8MB and Google Play has given it a 4.4 rating. This rating was based on 1,546 user reviews that were out today.
