The communication tool Beep Pakistan, which spans 41 federal ministries and departments, has finally been made available to government employees by the Ministry of Information Technology. The general public will eventually have access to it as well.

The application is intended to act as a substitute for WhatsApp and other social media platforms. It has features like audio and video calling, video conferencing, and will be used for secure communication between government employees. Users will be able to securely transfer private documents from the government.

The app is initially only accessible to federal agencies, but in a subsequent phase, provincial governments will also have access to it. The general public will be able to use this application after government workers. As a result, Beep Pakistan would become the first locally developed social media platform in the nation.

The government asserts that the application is more secure than the alternatives because its server is situated in Pakistan. This application’s source code will also be hosted in Pakistan. By investing Rs. 79 billion in 83 new projects, the connectivity of the app has been made possible.

Senior members of the Ministry of IT, including Federal Minister for IT and Telecom Syed Amin Ul Haque, attended the Beep Pakistan app’s launch ceremony.

The introduction of this application, according to the IT Minister, will put an end to audio and video leaks. He added that over the previous four years, three new incubation centers had been established.

He added:

“In Pakistan today, 33 companies are producing smartphones. Pakistan is home to some of the biggest companies in the world that make mobile phones. IT exports totaled just $1 billion in 2020. Exports of IT now total $2.6 billion. To increase IT exports to $15 billion is our goal.”

According to Syed Amin Ul Haque, significant milestones like the Data Protection Bill and the Cyber Security Policy have also been reached.
