Besides free 4G data, Reliance Jio offers a vast bundle of digital services such as online movies, TV shows, messaging, cloud storage, music, calls, wallet and security. Airtel is now trying to level with the new telco by giving attractive offers to its subscribers through MyAirtel app.
India's biggest telecom operator Bharti Airtel updated its mobile app on Wednesday to include some interesting features that will make its users happy. The updated MyAirtel app grants access to Airtel Dialer, which gives 50 minutes of free calls to any Airtel number.
Another important addition is Airtel Cloud, which offers 2GB of free cloud storage with no upload charges in the night. Users can backup their photos, videos, audios, documents, contacts and call logs for free. But the free upload option is currently available only for its prepaid customers, and the postpaid users will receive the new feature "very soon."
The telecom operator also has Airtel Jackpot, which gives prepaid users 5GB of free night data. As for postpaid users, there is a simple option to track voice, data and SMS usage with a graphical view.
On the entertainment side, the app has a list of "top apps," which is curated by Airtel to include Ditto TV (free subscription for Airtel usres), Hike Messenger, Wynk Music, Wynk Movies, Juggernaut and Airtel Money.
With the aim to counter Jio's efforts, Airtel and other telcos have been offering attractive schemes, including free calls, data and more for their users. Airtel's latest move is a part of its ongoing struggle to keep up with the changing telecom industry.
