“JioCall also brings Rich Communication Services (RCS) with features such as Rich Call, Chat, Group Chat, file sharing, location sharing and more”
Amidst the rollout of Jio GigaFiber broadband service in India, Jio has renamed the Jio4GVoice app to JioCall, thus setting a stage for its upcoming fixed line service. The latest update is also speculated to make Jio fixed line connections smart by enabling video and voice calls directly through smartphones, which should allow for more convenience. JioCall app is also redesigned to work with JioFi device to enable VoLTE calling.
According to Google Play store changelog listing, GigaFiber users will need to configure their 10-digit fixed line number on the JioCall app. Once it’s done, the app will highlight that users’ can now make or receive voice calls through the fixed line number directly using a smartphone. Google Play listing also confirms that the service doesn’t need a separate SIM for video and voice calls through the Jio network. Moreover, JioCall will continue to offer all the existing features such as VoLTE voice and video calling on 2G, 3G, 4G smartphones. It enables voice calls on smartphones that do not feature VoLTE support through a JioFi device.
JioCall also brings Rich Communication Services (RCS) with features such as Rich Call, Chat, Group Chat, file share, location share, doodles, stickers, and many more. This feature is only functional through the JioCall app with Jio SIM. Since JioCall is already here, the fixed line service should also be available alongside the GigaFiber launch in the coming weeks. Reliance Jio hasn’t publicly announced the rollout of its fixed-line service just yet, but it did provide access through the GigaHub Home Gateway for early testers. The JioCall update is already available on the Google Play store.
