Further evidence of the merger’s progress is the removal of the Voot app from both the Google Play Store and App Store. Users can no longer download the standalone Voot app, further solidifying the integration of Voot’s offerings with JioCinema.
JioCinema has already initiated the transition process for Voot users, offering a seamless transfer of their profiles to the JioCinema platform. Additionally, Voot Select users were provided with a promotional code to access JioCinema’s Premium membership, which was launched in May at a competitive price of Rs 999 per year, focusing on Hollywood content.
The merger ensures that subscribers do not experience any loss of content, as all Voot shows and movies are available on the JioCinema platform. This consolidation of content aims to enhance the user experience and offer a diverse range of entertainment choices.
