Users can access the complete details on the Kumbh such as checking for real-time travel options, emergency helpline numbers and pre-published bath and religious day schedules to name a few.

As the place is extremely crowded, the phone comes with an option called as 'Family Locator' which help track the exact location of your family members.

Also, there is devotional content such as "Kumbh Radio" which is expected to provide all-day access to devotional songs and hymns and also 'Kumbh Darshan' through which Kumbh events and programs can be watched on JioTV along with previous archives of Kumbh.

The phone is also supposed to send in important news alerts and announcements taking place in and around Kumbh.

Finally, there is an option to play games and a daily Kumbh Quiz.

The phone comes with Jio 4G data and free Local, STD and Roaming calls. It also has Google's voice assistant.

The new Kumbh functionality will be available to both existing and new JioPhone through JioStore.
