Airtel’s latest move to counter Jio: Updated Airtel app to give more free services

Airtel has rolled out an updated version of its “My Airtel” app, that will have a new “Airtel Apps” section. This new section will have a collection of top apps under a single interface.

The updated app will provide direct access to apps such as Ditto TV with 100+ LIVE TV channels and popular TV shows without any subscription charges , Hike Messenger app, Wynk Music, Wynk Movies, Airtel Money and Juggernaut.

My Airtel app now also features: Airtel Cloud and Airtel Dialer.

Airtel Cloud will provide 2 GB of free cloud storage and backup, similar to the cloud storage space offered by Reliance Jio. On the other hand, Airtel Dialer offers 50 minutes of free Airtel-to-Airtel calling benefits, in addition to its call management feature.

Airtel also mentioned that there will be no additional data charges for overnight data backup from its Prepaid subscribers. This benefit would be available to the Postpaid customers soon.

This move by Airtel comes at the time when it is desperate to compete with Reliance Jio, which has its own ecosystem of applications that offer digital content.

Existing users of My Airtel app can simply update their app to enjoy the new features, while others can install the “My Airtel” app from Google PlayStore (Android) or AppStore (iOS).
