Is the app name derived from "Kai Jhala?" (Marathi)? The English translation for "Kai Jhala" means "What Happened", very much what the app does I guess
@prathamesh_sarang Exactly what i thought πŸ˜„
Interesting to see Microsoft target Asian markets with a hybrid of Slack and WhatsApp business πŸ’ΌπŸ’¬
@amrith how does this specifically target Asian markets?
@anna_0x since this is mobile-first I think they're doubling down on focusing on India and Asia mainly. Lot of major Indian companies and even the railway authorities are adapting this: https://news.microsoft.com/en-in...
@amrith @anna_0x Looking at the URL, it's in the "en-in" market (India). If you change the URL to "en-us" to see it in their US geo, it's not there. So definitely looks like a product targeted for specific regions, at least India if not more broadly the Asian market.
@trevin oops, nice catch. I didn't even notice that (mobile browser)!
@amrith I see, thanks for the link!
Interesting to see how Microsoft will position this is product compared to what they already have (Teams, Group Me...). This looks like a WeChat/Telegram competitor.
That's the Microsoft's UX UI level? Very disappointing.
Is that you Telegram?
