How to use Jio4GVoice to make calls on Reliance Jio and all you need to know

It has been a few weeks since Reliance Jio was launched. The telco has attractive plans and is free to use till December 31st, so naturally, many people would like to start using Jio.

The catch is that Reliance Jio runs entirely on 4G, so unless you have a compatible phone, you won’t be able to use the network. If your phone does not support 4G (for data) and VoLTE (for calls), you will not be able to use Jio.

If so then you have two options. One, you can buy a new phone – here are our top phones that support Jio – or two, you can use the company’s Jio4GVoice app, which is available here Android, Jio4GVoice, initially launched as JioJoin, is a dialer for Reliance Jio that can be used to make “rich” calls from your Jio phone or to use Jio without a 4G enabled phone . It only works with a Jio connection – you must either have a Jio SIM in your phone, or be connected to a JioFi device. See here how it works.

How to Download and Setup Jio4GVoice App?
How to use Jio4GVoice app is outlined. In the next section, we’ll talk about whether you need to use it.

  1. Firstly, install the app on your phone using myjio Install from app or directly play store,
  2. If you are using a 3G phone, the app will ask you to connect to your JioFi Wi-Fi network.
  3. If you are using a 4G phone, it will use the 4G network to connect to Jio.
  4. Once the app is connected, it will verify your Jio connection.
  5. then you have to tap get started To do, well, get started.
  6. Next, you are asked to make Jio your default SMS app. you can just tap No on this message if you want

Now Jio4GVoice is set up. You can use it as your dialer to call someone or send them an SMS.

How to make calls from Jio4GVoice app?
follow these steps:

  1. Tap on a contact. Now, just hold your phone to your ear to initiate a call.
  2. If you are calling another Jio user, you can also “Prepare” the call.
  3. You can tap the camera icon on the left to send an image, the location icon in the middle to send your location, or tap the instant call icon on the right to mark the call as urgent with a short message. Huh.
  4. To make a video call you can tap on the video icon in the bottom left.
  5. Or you can tap the phone icon in the bottom right to make a voice call.

So this is how it works.

I have VoLTE phone, do I need Jio4GVoice app?
No you don’t. Just use your normal phone dialer to call people. Jio4GVoice has some extra features, but it is something you can easily overlook.

Jio4GVoice allows you to send an SMS to your contacts or make a call to them. You can also connect multiple users to a bridge call, which is what you normally do. When calling someone, you can also hit the instant call button, which appears on your contact’s phone so they know it’s not just chit chat. During a call, you can also share your location, or share a picture, which sounds useful but is rarely used.

My phone has 4G but no VoLTE – do I need Jio4GVoice?
As you probably already know, if your phone does not support VoLTE standard, you cannot make calls on Reliance Jio network. Most Snapdragon powered 4G phones support VoLTE, and a fair number of MediaTek phones too, so it’s an impossible combination, but if you fall into this group, you’ll need to use Jio4GVoice to make calls.

It works exactly as mentioned in the first part of this article, and though we felt that Jio4GVoice dialer is a bit clunky, it is the only option you got here.

I have a 3G phone, is Jio4GVoice for me?
If you have a 3G phone then you cannot use Reliance Jio directly on your handset. The solution here is to get yourself a JioFi Wi-Fi hotspot and connect your phone to it. There are some downsides to doing this, as you’ll need to carry around two devices on the go, but it’s still an easy option to go out and buy an entirely new phone to take advantage of Jio’s plans.

Getting JioFi and connecting your phone to Wi-Fi means that your data is now being served on the Jio network. You still can’t use it to make calls – and Jio offers completely free voice calls. The good thing is that Jio4GVoice app allows you to add connection and use Jio network to make calls, as long as your phone is connected to JioFi hotspot.
