It allows unlimited meetings per day with each meeting going uninterrupted for up to 24 hours.
From security point of view, each meeting is password protected and the host can enable ‘Waiting Room’ to ensure no participant joins without permission. It also allows creation of groups and starting calling or chatting on a single click. Other features include ‘Safe Driving Mode’ while driving, multi-device login support for up to five devices and seamless switching from one device to other while on call.

Also, the app allows national and international seminars as well as hosting of cultural and social events. Unlike Zoom where users cannot expand a participant’s video, JioMeet meetings users can expand any participant’s video or shared screen’s video by a double tap.
