Reliance Jio is not the only telecom player and it has proved its credentials by acquiring Saavn to empower its own music-streaming segment. And now, the company has launched a group voice-calling app called Group Talk, which is available to both Android as well iOS users.

The app, as claimed on the Play Store listing, lets you talk in conference mode with up to 10 people at the same time. We’ve tried using the app and it seems you’ll need a Jio number to login to it, but we’ll try using it with another SIM to confirm this limitation.

With the features on offer, it’s quite clear that Group Talk goes up against WhatsApp and its slew of internet-based calling features.
