The JioPages web browser has come to Android TV via Google Play, the company announced today. The web browser was previously available on television only through the Jio set-top box, but it will not be available to Android TV users worldwide. Jio says in his press release that the browser will provide “an improved browsing experience through faster engine migration, best-in-class web page rendering, faster page loading, efficient media streaming and an encrypted connection “.
On the home page of the web browser, the main options include Home, Videos, News, and Quick Links. Jio says that his video section has curated content that includes more than 10,000 videos categorized into more than 20 categories including music, kids, lifestyle, news, and more. This feature was introduced to facilitate the content discovery process on television.
The browser will support up to eight regional Indian languages, including Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Gujarati, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, and Bengali. The user can also customize the news feed based on preferred regional languages. In addition to viewing the latest news in the browser, it also allows the download of electronic newspapers. To read these electronic newspapers, you have a built-in PDF reader.
As with most web browsers, users can bookmark a particular website and access its browsing history. In addition to the standard browsing mode, it also has an incognito mode to browse privately and prevent browsing history from being stored on the system.
The web browser was previously available to Android smartphone users on the Play Store in 2018. The Made in India app occupies 46MB of space, has over 10 million downloads on the platform, and a rating of 4.2 on the Play Store.
