JioMeet vs Zoom Meetings vs Google Meet – Which is the Best Meeting App?

Reliance has recently launched JioMeet, its first video conferencing app. With unlimited meetings, a maximum duration of 24 hours, and up to 100 participants per meeting, JioMeet seems to offer attractive features when compared to competing apps like Zoom and Google Meet.

Let's compare JioMeet with Zoom Meetings and Google Meet to see which one comes out on top.

Platform Support

All three apps – Google Meet, JioMeet, and Zoom – can be used on Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, and the web. However, Zoom is the only one with a dedicated app for Linux. Google Meet, on the other hand, doesn't have a dedicated app for Windows and macOS, so your only option is to use the web app. It does have an Android and iOS app, though.


The interface of Zoom and the JioMeet app is identical. The New Meeting, Join, and Schedule buttons are in the same place. On the other hand, Google Meet has a much simpler interface, with only two options on the homepage – New Meeting and Join Meeting.

Security & Privacy

By default, both Zoom and JioMeet have password-protected meetings, requiring both the meeting ID and password to join. Google Meet, on the other hand, requires the host to admit everyone to the meeting, and participants need to sign in with their Google account.

In terms of encryption, all three apps provide some level of encryption. Zoom has promised end-to-end encryption for all Zoom meetings in the near future.

Free Plan

All three apps allow you to host meetings with up to 100 participants for free. JioMeet lets you hold a meeting for a maximum duration of 24 hours, while Zoom allows only a maximum duration of 40 minutes (for three or more participants). Google Meet has a maximum time limit of 60 minutes (after September 30th, 2020).


When it comes to features, Zoom offers the most. From Whiteboard to Internal Recording to Safe Driving Mode, Zoom has it all. JioMeet, on the other hand, lacks some serious features such as File Sharing and recording meetings. Additionally, JioMeet only supports up to 100 people in a group call.

Meeting Moderation

Both Google Meet and JioMeet have limited meeting moderation. The person who initiates the call is the host, and the rest are participants. These roles cannot be swapped or delegated.

Zoom, on the other hand, allows you to assign the host position to any participant. Zoom also offers features like disabling screen sharing, white screen annotation, and muting all other participants.

In conclusion, if you are outside India, JioMeet is not available yet. If you have a larger audience of more than 100 participants, Zoom is a favorable option. However, for smaller meetings and one-off scenarios, JioMeet works well. Keep in mind that JioMeet is still in the beta phase, so it may not be suitable for more serious work at this time.
