Reliance Jio is renewing the membership for its Prime users and if you've already subscribed to Prime, here's how you can check the extension.

Reliance Jio has set its footprint in the Indian wireless mobile service area by offering affordable data packages as well as freebies that its rivals don’t have. In 2016, when the company’s commercial operations started, it first offered free calling and mobile data for up to six months, then it rolled out a Prime membership that gave users more data and free access to the application library of Jio.

The telecommunications company previously announced the Prime membership with a Rs 99 annual subscription, and now, it’s renewing the membership for its Prime users. If you have already subscribed to Prime, you can follow this instruction to check if your number is auto-renewed.

To check whether or not Reliance Jio has extended your number’s Prime membership, you need first to open the MyJio app on your phone. When you have got into the app, look to find a hamburger icon placed on the top left corner of the screen and tap on it. Next, there will be the “My Plans” section shown in the app which you need to tap on and find your tariff plan. Now, in the tab “My plans,” besides your current plan, you will see another option titled “Jio Prime Membership.” As stated by Telecom Talk, if Jio has extended your membership, there will be a message reading “Your request to avail free JioPrime membership for a year has been registered successfully. You can now enjoy JioPrime benefits for another year. Thank You!”

Seeing this message in “My Plans” section within the MyJio app means the telecom provider has auto-extended your Prime membership; hence you can enjoy all the benefits we mentioned earlier. BGR India has contacted Reliance Jio with questions about why the company decided to carry out this extension and if it is voluntarily extending the Prime membership for users or not and the answer is expected to be known soon.

Giant telecom provider Reliance Jio is conducting new plans to gain more new subscribers than its competitors after its subscriber addition reached a saturation point. Regarding revenue market share, Jio has already taken over Vodafone and now, with the extended Prime membership, it will push its competitive advantage even further to compete with incumbent players such as Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea Ltd in India.

In addition to standard communication services like SMS, calling, data benefits, Prime subscribers can enjoy more benefits including JioTV, JioMusic, JioCinema and more. Plus, extended membership on Prim subscribers offers additional data as well as complimentary offers that standard users cannot access.
