JioMeet a Made in India video-conferencing application launched by Reliance. Although it is a beta release available for all without any cost right now. In the market, there are other products available too like Webex, GoToMeeting, Lifesize, Zoom, etc for video conferencing.
The company is approaching and using the same old mechanism which they used when Jio sim came out and that is by providing it for free.
Why Free? Is there any hidden cost involved?
Yes, there is a hidden cost. Once you are used to this app and the app is fully developed and published then they are going to charge you for using it.
But where is the hidden cost?
It is your feedback and data, you do not have to spend money right now but your data and feedback will help the Reliance to improve the application. Once they become pro and join others in terms of stability and features then you will have the option to subscribe to plans. Yet, I believe there will be a free plan too at that time. So you do not need to get disappointed and not to worry about plans as it is gonna take some more time. Even then when plans come out you still can have a free account as per our research.
