Reliance Jio has quietly rebranded its Jio4GVoice application to JioCall. The Jio4GVoice app was offered as a utility application by the Mukesh Ambani-led telecom operator. The app allowed users to make calls and send SMS and worked separately from stock dialer application. Now, the disruptor in India’s telecom market has changed the name of the application to JioCall. This is not just another rebranding, but it also brings new features to the application. The new version of Jio4G Voice, now called JioCall, is now available for download via Google Play Store.
JioCall gets Fixed Line Calling Feature
The rebranded version called JioCall brings one big new feature to the calling app. Reliance Jio is now betting on its users to make video calls from their fixed line number with the rebranded application. The JioCall app will allow Jio SIM and Jio Network users to make video and audio calls from their smartphone using the fixed line number. “JioCall can make your FixedLine connection smart by using your smartphone to make video and audio calls,” the company explains in app description.
In order to make call, Jio users will first have to configure their Fixed Line number with the JioCall application. On the JioCall app, you will have an option called Fixed Profile. This will allow users to make or receive calls from their fixed line number. Interestingly, you can do so without needing a Reliance Jio SIM card, notes Telecom Talk. The new app has version number 5.2.2 and it does not compromise on any of the older features.
It comes with features like VoLTE high-definition voice and video calls on your existing 2G, 3G or 4G smartphone. The app allows users to make HD calls even from their non-4G device. Reliance JioFi users could also make use of the app to place HD calls using the application. It allows users users to dial any landline and subscribers. The real advantage of the app is the ability to add VoLTE features on existing 2G/3G smartphones.
