Reliance Jio today launched the JioGamesWatch platform, taking its first step into the gaming industry. With developers, gamers and publishers in mind, it will allow users to stream game content from any Android and iOS device, as well as directly from their set-top box.
Similar to Twitch, JioGamesWatch offers game streaming in an easy-to-use and convenient way. “The platform focused on empowering and enabling creators live, with any device, with low latency and showcase the best of their content to millions of viewers,” Jio said in a press release.
JioGamesWatch will support cross-platform accessibility and users with the JioGames app will be able to stream directly on their Android or iOS smartphone as well as the Jio set-top box.
Users will be able to subscribe to their favorite content creators and never miss an update. Meanwhile, creators will be able to interact with viewers through eSports events. Mobile users will also be able to stream content in FHD and HD resolutions.
To counter the competitors, Jio has decided to keep JioGamesWatch free. They also shared resources and guides for those who want to go live on the platform, along with the ideal streaming setup.
