With the number of Reliance Jio subscribers increase in India, the Jio suite of apps is also getting a lot of mouth-watering updates to allure more people in the country. The latest update includes a new feature in the Jio Money app which allows customers to recharge their existing metro cards and pay traffic challans and more. With this, users will be also able to make online payments of road tolls in select cities. However, the new update (v 3.17.9466) is exclusive to iPhone users only and is yet to feature in the play store of Android and Windows users in India.
Moreover, the version 3.17.9466 update comes up with enhanced security as the Jio Money account will essentially have a direction connection to users' devices. Hence, subscribers will be required to open a Jio Money account first to start using the Jio Money wallet.
In order to open a Jio Money account, users are required to provide personal details along with a valid Identity proof. Accepted IDs include PAN Card, passport number, voter ID, driving license number and NREGA proof.
However, the newly-launched feature in the Jio Money app is currently to Mumbai and Hyderabad, but Jio claims that it will add more cites to the list anytime soon. In addition, Jio Money for iPhones has also received the MEP and Nice E-Pay toll service for commuters in Bengaluru and Mumbai.
For more details customers are requested to visit the Pay Bills and Services tab in the Travel section of the Jio Money app. The latest update is available for download for free via the App Store.
