How has been the experience of being a part of Digital Level Up and the emerging ecosystem of esports in India?

I have personally been a part of the gaming ecosystem for the past 10 years. I’m a gamer myself, so it has been a very great experience. We don’t do it as work, but it is our passion and we have a lot of fun building this whole thing. We understand communities really well because we ourselves are part of them and we do understand what gamers really want. Jio being a firm that wants to accommodate the entire esports audience of the country, we are very determined to ensure that we are able to cater to all the needs of the gaming community.

The journey has been really fun. It started off with the JioGames app with instant gaming expanding to the arena and then expanding to esports around professionals, and even for all the content creators and influencers, they have their platforms where they can stream gaming. We’ve also launched a cloud gaming service, which can give you access to all the high-end games on any device.
