What to expect from Jio Virtual Reality App
Since Reliance Jio has been very disruptive with its pricing (Dhan Dhana Dhan plans), the same can be expected from its VR app in 2018. However, the project seems to be in very early stages and we will have to wait for a while before something substantial comes out. What we do want to see apart from the aggressive price is the technology which changes the future of Virtual Reality. Also, Jio VR app can make the concept of Virtual Reality accessible for masses.
