Bharti Airtel and US-based Verizon on Tuesday tied-up to launch BlueJeans -- a video conferencing app, to compete with Zoom and JioMeet, that was recently launched by its archrival Reliance Jio.

The large, medium and small enterprises will be able to use it without any worry, and we will be offering prices accordingly to these enterprises...pricing will be segmented in three categories," he said.

He said even though there are competitors in this segment, the company was confident of generating maximum number of customers in the coming year, as there are more offers in the pipeline.
