JioMart app makes debut on Google Play Store for Android users
Reliance JioMart app has made its debut for Android users. The app has quietly launched on Android app store, Google Play. The launch comes just days after Reliance Industries, 43rd annual general meeting (AGM). It’s not clear when the JioMart app exactly hit the Play Store, as right now it shows 100-plus downloads. As per the listing, the app’s developer is Jio Platforms. “Get the JioMart App to experience online grocery shopping like never before,” goes the app’s description. “The free online shopping app from JioMart assures you of a great shopping experience with a wide selection of groceries across categories like fresh fruits, vegetables, staples, personal care, beverages, branded foods, snacks, home & kitchen and more with great deals and huge savings,” it adds. The app is currently delivering in over 200 locations. Though it’s yet not clear which are these cities/areas. Intensifying the online grocery apps war, JioMart is offering free delivery. It also claims to offer products at at least 5% below the MRP. The description of the app shows that the app offers support for multiple payment options including net banking, credit/debit cards, sodexo for food products, ROne loyalty points and even cash on delivery. There’s also a search option. “Browse for your desired products, categories and favourite brands with our easy and robust search functionality,” says the app’s details on Play Store. Jio claims that the most of the products — fruits and vegetables — available in JioMart are sourced directly from farmers. Currently, the app is only available on Google Play Store and is not there on Apple’s App Store. To recall, at the AGM, RIL chairman and managing director Mukesh Ambani said that the company will launch 5G network services in India as soon as the 5G spectrum is available and can be ready for field deployment next year. He has also said that in partnership with Google, the company will launch an Android-based operating system for affordable smartphones. The company also announced a hardware product, Jio Glass. It is said to weigh 75 grams and connect the handset to the internet browser.
