The JioPhone already has a bunch of popular apps on the KaiOS platform, which includes JioSaavnMusic, JioTV to stream live TV channels, and JioMovies. Besides, social networking app Facebook, video streaming service YouTube and Google Maps apps are also present on the platform. And finally, the most widely used instant messaging app, WhatsApp, is also available on the JioPhone platform.

It is interesting to see an OTT platform customizing its app for the feature phones, which itself proves how important the particular segment is. Of course, you don’t get a full-fledged experience as you would on a smartphone, but it is for those users who aren’t too comfortable switching to a smartphone, mainly because of the budget constraints.
