Here we are explaining How to run WhatsApp on Jio Phone. If you have recently shifted from a basic phone or smartphone to Jio phone than you might be wondering to know which apps are compatible with Jio phone. Though Jio phone is preloaded with a lot of Jio apps like Jio Music, TV, News, Movies, Chat. But a lot of Jio phone users are seeking for other apps as they used on smartphones. Jio phone runs on a modified Firefox OS known as KaiOS, which has certain limitations to run and use most of the top apps.
A lot of Jio phone users are looking for How to run Whatsapp on Jio Phone. Whatsapp is known as the best app for instant messaging and consists a huge user base in India. Jio Phone doesn’t support Whatsapp directly but few users have tried and experimented a way to run WhatsApp on Jio phone. Recently Whatsapp stopped its services on a lot of smartphones which were not friendly with the new upgrade environment.
How to run WhatsApp on Jio Phone
Jio Phone slowly introducing new apps to its platform. New custom designed apps like bookmyshow, NaMo is available for installation and use over Jio phone.
After a long wait of months, finally, Jio started deliveries of Jio phone to common users. So here we bring you much-awaited unboxing first impression jio phone review. Most of the basic phones cost around Rs 2000 offering just basic functions like calling, FM, music playback. There is huge market and demand for basic phones in India as still most of the population can’t afford a smartphone with decent specs.
Without wasting much time Jio sensed the demand of a basic phone with features of a smartphone like live TV, movies, music and video calling. Jio after launching their free and later affordable 4G services created a storm in data services between network operators.
So here we have Jio phone out of the box and real hands-on over the phone. The jio branded package contains red theme explaining various Jio services like Jio Cinema, Jio TV, Jio Music, Jio Video chat, Jio Express and Jio Pay. Jio phone package explains inbox contents like 1 Handset, 1 charger, 1 manual, 1 battery, 1 sim. It also mentions about Jio Media cable which can be connected to any TV to enjoy content from the phone directly. But unfortunately, this cable doesn’t come with the package and needs to be purchased separately.
After inserting Battery and SIM to Jio phone, we powered up the phone by pressing the red button on right side. Jio phone takes around a minute to present welcome screen. Then you are instructed to choose your default language and Wifi network if you wish. A recent firmware and software update is being notified which is recommended to enjoy the smooth performance. After downloading and installing both firmware and OS updates we are presented to enjoy Jio services.

Basic Jio apps like Jio TV, Express, Cinema, Music, Games, My Jio, Jio video chat are accessible. You can also download other apps from Jio Store like as you do on Android phones from Google Store, but right now only limited Jio apps are available to install.
After using all apps and services on Jio phone for a day we came to following conclusions:
Unboxing first impression jio phone review
1. As considering the price of Rs 1500, Jio phone is definitely value for money. With a starting recharge plan of Rs 153/mth, it offers unlimited calls, free roaming and 500 MB of data daily. This can also be carried as a secondary phone or to get rid of the habit of sticking with smartphones every time.
2. A great device for starters, kids and senior people in your home. As kids also started getting fond of smartphones, we can limit them just by providing required basic features and restricting them from unwanted social apps and games.
3. The touch of buttons and keypad is quite smooth and big keys allow anyone to use them easily, especially senior people who are not comfortable with touch phones. Torchlight is also an advantage at night time.
4. Jio apps are clearly a big advantage to enjoy 4G data on a basic phone, you can enjoy unlimited music, videos, movies and live TV. Speaker is quite loud to enjoy music content. Watching videos can be quite awkward on such a small screen, but can be streamed to your TV via Jio Media cable.
5. Though onboard camera on Jio phone is basic, you can manage to have video calls with your dear ones. Video chat on a basic phone is really a great feature.
6. NFC (Near field communication) chip allows Jio phone to make payments just by tapping your phone to the receiver with the help of Jio Pay app. Digital payments are rising high. With NFC facility, this process has been much simplified.
1. Jio phones run on a very specially developed and a modified Operating system called Kai OS, it usually runs on very low specs and hardware. Phone sometimes hangs and lags in functioning like you can’t immediately minimise volume or go back to home screen.
2. Multitasking capabilities and availability of apps on Jio Store are quite low. But this is acceptable considering Jio phone specs and OS platform.
3. Connectivity issues over the unstable network can lead to unusual behaviour of apps like music stops automatically own it’s after a certain time.
4. A crackling type of sound was observed from speaker after stopping music playback. Maybe any software bug leading this issue. Finding few shortcuts is also hard in beginning
5. You might find battery performing well if you don’t use many data-centric apps, but 2000mah battery can stay you back if you are away from charging point.
6. You can ignore few issues, that might be updated as this is not a smartphone, considering its price.
As we all aware Jio phone offers a good mix of smartphone features and a basic phone at a very low price of Rs 1500. Considering its value for money advantage we can buy Jio phone as a secondary phone or gift it for kids or senior persons who are not comfortable with touch phones. You can enjoy free unlimited calls starting from Rs 153 and can also live stream content to your TV which is a big advantage in this price range phones.
Pre-booking of Jio phone has been started and customers are ready to hands on ‘India ka smartphone’, Jio phone. A recent leak by famous tech site Digit has revealed Jio phone brochure which has revealed almost all Jio phone features. Retailer brochure of Jio phone share enough information of Jio phone features which were hidden at the time of Jio phone launch.
Jio phone brochure designed in blue colour scheme reveals rest of the Jio phone features and specifications, which are as follows:
Camera and photography on Jio phone
Jio phone is packed with 2 MP rear camera and VGA camera in front. 2 MP camera might sound very low but as it is installed in a feature phone, it can be bearable for taking photographs to be shared on social networks. VGA camera allows to click selfie and enjoying video calls.
High-speed Internet browsing and other Jio phone features
Customers can enjoy high-speed Internet surfing on Jio phone in various ways. Users can access web browser just by pressing ‘0’ key like as in old java based phones. Customers can also enjoy videos on Youtube. News, Music, Facebook, Matrimony, Astrology, Jobs and Weather forecast can be accessed by in-built browser.
Unlimited access to Music, Videos and Movies on Jio phone
Users can access and enjoy 60000+ Music Videos, 6000+ Movies and 1 Lakh + of HD ad-free content on Jio phone. As we all aware Jio users can access loads of HD content and enjoy the audio experience on Jio network, the same environment has been created on Jio phone too and users can entertain themselves with music and video content.
Users can run Jio phone in 22 Indian languages. Complete phone menu can be customized in various Indian languages. This is really a big advantage in India as there are a lot of languages as per region. Most of the smartphones are based on limited languages. Every phone user is not comfortable with the English language used in most of the phones. Jio phone will be taken hand in hand with ease of language customization.
Navigation and GPS on Jio phone features
Maps and Navigation support will be provided on Jio phone which will provide assistance in reaching the destination. As Google map support is provided on most of the Android phones, the same type of service will be available on Jio phone to utilize in-built GPS. We need to wait to see if Jio phone is utilizing Google account services to provide same navigation experience on Maps.
Jio phone will have an internal memory of 4 GB which can be upgraded easily to 128 GB with help of memory card. 4 GB can be termed sufficient but if anyone wants to download a lot of audio video file than up-gradation of memory is required, which can easily do by inserting a memory card.
Voice Assistant over Jio phone
One of the biggest advantages of Jio phone is the voice assistant which can run almost every function just by saying command through voice. As most of used ‘OK Google’ command on Android phones, the same type of experience will be provided to users on Jio phone. Saying ‘Call XYZ’ will call XYZ or saying ‘Play music’ will start music player. Voice assistant feature is a really great advantage to users of all age groups where is not able to found a certain function or an app.
Enjoy HD content on bigger screen, best Jio phone features
Users can connect their Jio phone to any type of TV whether it’s CRT or LED. With the help of separate cable, users can connect the phone to TV and enjoy HD content on the bigger screen. Right now, limited smart phones allow connecting to LED or smart TV by either HDMI port or Wifi mirroring. This feature is one of biggest advantage in Jio phone which eliminates the need of separate DTH set top box to stream content to their TV. This facility by Jio will definitely cause harm to DTH industry.
Jio phone booking has been rolled out in few areas of Delhi NCR through offline mode. Certain offline stores have started taking Jio phone booking. As all aware Jio phone has been announced on 21 July in an event by Mukesh Ambani. Jio phone is priced at Rs 1500. This amount is refundable and can be claimed after 36 months.

Delivery schedule after Jio phone booking

It will also have access to all Jio apps. Jio phone can also be connected to TV to enjoy content on the big screen through a separate cable.
Mukesh Ambani launched Jio phone as ‘India ka smartphone’ at an unbelievable price of Rs 1,500. In Indian smartphone market even a basic phone costs around Rs 2,000 with basic features. Reliance Jio completely shocked everyone with phone launch having features of a smartphone. The Jio phone is priced for a fully refundable amount of Rs 1500 after three years.
Features of smartphone in Jio phone
Reliance Jio completely aims to disrupt smartphone manufacturers with its latest offering. Jio phone fully utilises 4G network and supports Jio apps like Jio Cinema, Jio TV and Jio Music. Jio Phone even supports video streaming to TVs through a separate cable. It means you can watch any content or Jio TV over your TV (even an old CRT TV).
Jio phone also has support for Voice commands like ‘OK Google’in Android smartphones. With this unique feature, you can say commands and Jio Phone will launch same. Like saying ‘Call XYZ’ will make a call to XYZ or saying play trailer of Bahubali will play trailer of the movie. With its familiar design and standard features of the basic phone, Jio phone is easy to use for each age category.
Ambani said there are more than 50 crore basic phone users in India but they can’t utilize the power of data as they can’t easily afford smartphones or high cost of data. Jio phone solves both issues and provides them in feature packed phone.
Monthly recharge and TV pack
Users need to pay Rs 153/month for unlimited calls, data, and SMS. For cable TV support users need to pay Rs 309/month. Apart from that Jio also introduced small packs, at Rs 24 for 2 days and Rs 54 for a week.
