After WhatsApp releasing its official app for Jio Phone, now JioPhone has now got support for popular video streaming app YouTube too.

The newly-launched YouTubeapp has been optimized for KaiOS and will work seamlessly on Reliance Jio’s feature phones — JioPhone and JioPhone 2.

KaiOS is a web-based platform that uses open standards such as HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS. It made its India foray with JioPhone in July 2017 and gained a 15% of the mobile OS market beating Apple iOS as the second-most-widely used in India, as per DeviceAtlas’ latest Mobile Web Intelligence Report.
