JioPages, the Web browser offered by telecom giant Reliance Jio, has debuted on Android TV. The latest update brings JioPages to Android TV-based smart TVs. The Web browser supports eight Indian languages and includes features such as a dedicated Videos section and a PDF reader to ease Web browsing for smart TV users. JioPages also comes with a News section to let smart TV viewers watch trending news in any of the eight supported languages and even download e-newspapers to read news on a bigger screen. The JioPages browser arrived as an update to the JioBrowser for Android mobile users and is claimed to have over 10 million downloads on the platform.
Just like any other Web browser available for smart TVs, JioPages allows users to browse the Web directly from their larger screens. It comes with a dedicated search bar and voice search support for easy searching of online content. Users can also bookmark their favourite sites or access their browsing history. It also lets you check what's being downloaded on your smart TV through the built-in Download Manager. Additionally, the JioPages Web browser has a Quicklinks section to let you quickly visit popular sites from a single screen.
JioPages offers an Incognito Mode — alongside the default browsing mode — to enable private browsing. It also includes a Videos section with more than 10,000 curated content categorised in over 20 categories such as Music, Movies, Kids, and Lifestyle, among others. Further, there is regional content, along with the ability to customise the default news feed in a preferred language. Android TV users can also download PDFs directly from the JioPages browser to read documents on their TV.
