Jio TV enables Picture-in-Picture feature for Android
New Delhi: Reliance Jio has released an updated version of its Jio TV app on the Google Play Store with Picture-in-Picture (PiP) feature for Android. This feature can be used for Android users having 8.0 Oreo or above.
The PiP support is a much-demanded feature for the media apps as it allows users to watch the content even when they are in the middle of other tasks on their Android smartphone.
“To take your viewing experience a notch higher, we bring you Picture-in-Picture feature,” JioTV team wrote in the official changelog. “Now you can continue watching Jio TV while you chat, browse or do more with your phone.”
For the uninitiated, Google had introduced the support for picture-in-picture mode in Android 8.0. It is a special multi-window mode, which lets the users watch a video in a small window while doing other tasks on the device.
The Jio TV app by Reliance Jio readily offers real-time access to over 600 TV channels to the Jio subscribers. The app supports multiple languages including English, Hindi, Urdu, Assamese, Odia, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Bengali, Gujarati, Bhojpuri, Punjabi, and Malayalam.
Additionally, the app also geared with features such as recording support, pause support, and 7-day catchup TV. The Jio TV app is limited to Jio users on both Android and iOS platforms. It also has exclusive channels like Jio Events, Jio Sports, and more, accessible to both postpaid and prepaid Jio users. The app is available without any extra charges to Jio subscribers. In the coming months, the app is expected to get a desktop client too.
