Is Jio grabbing a whole new market?
After becoming the first telecom operator in the country to offer mobile telephony services on the Kedarnath track, Jio has launched its Game Controller. It is compatible with a variety of devices including Android Tablets, Android TV, Android, and Jio STB (set-top box). The Jio Game Controller has 20 buttons, including two triggers and an eight-direction arrow button.
India’s giant telecom company Reliance Jio has now entered the smartphone segment as well as gaming. The controller looks similar to the gaming console or remote that comes with the video game. The newly launched gaming remote has been listed on Jio’s official website. The wireless gaming experience can be enjoyed in it through Bluetooth connectivity.
According to the description on the official website, the Jio Game Controller is compatible with Android tablets, Android TV, and other devices. However, the best experience with the game controller is with the Jio set-top box. The device does not offer any access to cable TV channels that one can access unlike Tata Play smart set-top box (previously called Tata Sky). It only allows the user to watch content from OTT platforms and from the Jio TV+ app, which has some live TV shows and videos.
The Jio Game Controller features Bluetooth v4.1 technology. It facilitates low latency connections and a wireless range of up to 10 meters. It also provides up to eight hours of battery life on a single charge. Additionally, it also comes with a rechargeable battery.
The game controller has a 20-button layout, including two pressure-point triggers, an eight-direction arrow button, and joysticks. There are also two vibration feedback motors, and there is also haptic control support.
