Bharti Airtel Ltd intends to begin its own combined video conferencing service to hit the expanding market for such platforms that already have players such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Google Hangouts and the latest JioMeet.
As per some internal sources, the telecom will initially offer the product to startups and enterprises and will roll out the platform for regular customers after assessing the response. However, Bharti Airtel has refused to comment.
This follows the launch of rival Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd’s video conferencing service JioMeet on 1 July, free to use. Though the platform has drawn spark on social media for being exactly similar to Zoom, it has begun growing fame among government officials.
Niti Aayog Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Amitabh Kant confirmed JioMeet is “better than Zoom” and admired the platform for being safe. In a post on Twitter, Kant said, “Tried JioMeet video-conferencing. It’s simple & easy! Better than Zoom.
NK Singh, Chairman of the 15th Finance Commission, exposed the commission examining to change over to Jio Meet and that he fully supports the platform.
