Jio Phone users can now access Facebook on their units

Facebook for Jio Phone

Jio Phone will get its own version of Facebook from today. The new version is built especially for the Jio KaiOS. According to the company, this move is likely to benefit potential fifty crore feature phone users in India. Jio Phone is basically an internet-enhanced affordable phone for the upcoming rural markets of India.

This new version of Facebook supports all the major features including push notifications, external links and videos. The cursor function of the phone will also work perfectly in this new version of the app. It has also been optimized to get the best features like News Feed and Photos to the users easily. So, every Jio Phone user can actually get all of Facebook on his/her own device. 

The app can be downloaded from the Jio App Store by all the new and existing users. Also read: LG V30 (2018) with AI-enhanced camera capabilities to launch at MWC
