After WhatsApp, JioPhone and JioPhone 2 now get official YouTube app

“YouTube has released its official app for KaiOS-powered 4G-enabled feature phones”

Earlier this month, WhatsApp announced the launch of its messaging app for devices running KaiOS. The IM app is now available for Reliance Jio’s  JioPhone (first impressions) and JioPhone 2 (first impressions) 4G-enabled feature phones. Now, YouTube has also launched its official app for the feature phones platform. The YouTube app is now available to download for the JioPhone and JioPhone 2 from the Jio AppStore.


To install YouTube’s official app on your JioPhone, you will need to first make sure that your phone is running the latest version of KaiOS. You can do this by going to the Settings of your handset and locating software update section, and then update your phone. Now, you will need to open JioPhone AppStore on your phone and scroll down till you find the YouTube app. Then install the application and open it.


As soon as you are done with the aforementioned processes, you will find a full-fledged YouTube app running on your JioPhone or JioPhone 2. Then you can sign into your Google account to get personalised video suggestions. You can also check the trending tab in the app to watch the latest viral videos.


Now, the JioPhone and JioPhone 2 have support for many social networking and media apps. Currently, they have dedicated apps for Facebook, WhatsApp, YouTube, Hotstar, Voot, and many more. We can expect the company to launch more apps for the handset in the near future.
