Reliance and WhatsApp plan
Undoubtedly, Reliance Industries covers a huge part of the Indian market whether being technology or any other product. But now it is planning to embed an E-Commerce company into WhatsApp in 6 months. This e-commerce company is well known to everyone in India. It is Jio Mart. It would be surprising but yes, as per the reports it is clear that it will be embedding this company soon into WhatsApp. This integration will now help Jio Mart to increase its reach across the country and to set a serious challenge to Amazon and Flipkart’s fast-growing online market in India. Hence, billionaire Mukesh Ambani is trying to achieve a bigger share of India’s market which is estimated to reach up to $1.3 trillion by 2025.

Working of Jio Mart on WhatsApp
Perhaps it would take time for Reliance to work smoothly on its new integration on this messaging app. But how will it work efficiently for the users?
- Basically, it is all about a WhatsApp number which the people will be adding to their WhatsApp account.
- On adding Jio Mart’s WhatsApp number 88500 08000 on their mobiles, users will be getting a link sent by Jio Mart.
- It will be valid for only 30 minutes.
- So, let’s see how efficiently and smoothly it is going to work for the users.
Jio Mart is a joint venture between Jio Platforms and Reliance Retail. It delivers all posibble daily essentials and groceries from nearby stores. In December 2019 this platform was soft-launched and is currently running in 200 cities in India.
WhatsApp asked its users to accept the new policy by 8th Feb otherwise the account would be suspended. But, for now, the deadline has been increased by three months. Continuously the company is trying to convince that their messages would be end-to-end encrypted.
