Should I get a Jio-Sim now

How to enjoy Jio apps on PC without Jio SIM

Although the speed has dropped drastically, the Jio fever has not yet completely dropped. Most of you now need to enjoy 4G speed in order to stream your favorite Youtube videos without the dreaded buffering. While there are still some issues that need to be addressed such as: B. Disconnections that do not meet the requirements in some areas and in the availability of the SIM cards sold for a fee, Jio has fundamentally moved the telecommunications market.

Not only does the free offer apply to 4G data, a number of apps are also part of the package, which apparently no one is focusing on. Today we're going to see what these apps offer and how you can enjoy them better than on a cramped mobile screen.

The apps

There are a total of eight different Jio apps that offer a variety of services ranging from the usual entertainment package from Movies & Music to News & Cloud Storage.

All content in these apps is also free until December 31, 2016, and an active Jio connection is required to use them. The apps on the top row are very popular and most likely will be used by anyone with a Jio SIM card. The 10 million downloads of every app in the Google Store are proof of this.

Enjoying movies on your 5 inch screen is no fun at all

Okay, that all sounds fine, but what if you want to enjoy John Wick with your friends on your laptop instead of them all looming awkwardly on your tiny smartphone screen. If you have an Android tablet (still around?) Or a Chromebook then you're fine, but for others, Android on PC is the way to go.

RemixOS to the rescue

Android emulators are not a new thing as they have been around since the days of gingerbread. But most of them were sluggish, buggy, and not that easy to use. That changed with the January 2016 release of RemixOS. It was designed from the ground up for x86 hardware (your PC) and the developers didn't ignore the user interface like others did. The result is lag-free performance and an easy-to-use emulator that is as simple as installing a regular desktop program. First, let's see how to install it.

Install RemixOS

There are two flavors of RemixOS: one that installs Android as a separate operating system called RemixOS, and the other, the RemixOS player, which runs as an emulator on Windows. Which one to use depends on what you're going to do with Android.

Installing it as a separate operating system gives you better performance and stability, but you have to put up with the inconvenience of rebooting every time to use Android. On the other hand, the player (emulator) is easy to use, but you will suffer from performance issues if your PC has lower specs. In our current scenario, if you want to use Jio apps on any internet connection, all you have to do is use RemixOS.

For instructions on installing RemixOS as a separate operating system, see the video above. The installation process of RemixOS Player is like any other Windows program. Accept the fine print> Click Nexts until the program is installed.

Run the Jio apps

Now that you've installed RemixOS, the next thing to do is to install the Jio apps of your choice. Fortunately, RemixOS comes with Google Play services and all you have to do is click Play activation app> Sign in with your Google account to use it.

There are a few things to keep in mind about how these apps work. As mentioned at the beginning, a Jio ID is required in order to be able to use all apps. Whether or not an active Jio connection is required depends on how you installed RemixOS. In our case, Jio apps on RemixOS worked on any internet connection except for JioTV, which crashed frequently.

As already mentioned, on RemixOS Player you need an active Jio connection, either in the form of USB tethering or WiFi hotspot. Another Android emulator that JioTV was working on was Bluestacks.

Another simpler solution: arc welder on chrome

While RemixOS is great and easy to use, it can be problematic for someone who just wants to enjoy movies on JioCinema and install the entire Android operating system (or emulator) as it may be too much work. For those who just want to use a single app, Arc Welder for Chrome is a much easier option. It's a Chrome app that works as an Android emulator. Let's see how to install and use it.

Step 1: Install the Arc Welder App for Chrome.

Step 2: Open the app from the app launcher by typing the followingchrome: // apps in the address bar. Click Add APK and point to the location of your app's saved APK file.

In case you don't know how to download an app, here is how to do it.

Step 3: After adding the apk, keep the settings and click exam to start the app.

I've tested all of the apps in ArcWelder and they work just fine, with the exception of JioTV which continues to be stubborn. Please note that an activated hardware acceleration is required for Arc Welder. You can find out how to enable it here.


So RemixOS & Arc Welder are the two ways that you can use these apps for any connection. Other emulators require an active Jio connection, while a Jio ID is required in each case. As for these apps, I'm pleasantly surprised after a few months. I was expecting a bunch of badly designed apps with bad content. But not only is it easy to use, the content is huge and diverse, and new content is added regularly. Did you find our method helpful? Share your views and thoughts through comments.
