The JioMeet supports up to 100 participants on a call and the call duration can be as long as 24 hours, unlike Zoom which offers only 40 minutes for a single call. The JioMeet currently has no payments or subscriptions and might charge in the future as it did with other Jio Services.

JioMeet claims all the calls are encrypted but does not say about end-to-end encryption. The Jio said that the JioMeet offers enterprise-grade host controls. Which includes password protection on calls and supports up to 5 Device multi-device login and share screen feature like other services.

There is a new Safe Driving Mode feature which can be useful when the user is driving. It also has waiting room feature which ensures the participant asks for permission to enter the conference.

Zoom has been the most popular videoconferencing app for Schools to host Digital classes. JioMeet also will allow teachers to host virtual classrooms for their students, assign and accept homework, record every class, and even to conduct tests digitally.
