How to enable WiFi Calling on Android and iOS? Compatible devices

We all have been stuck at places with very weak or no network coverage at some point in time, which makes it tough to make and receive calls. To solve this issue, smartphone manufacturers provide the feature of WiFi calling in most of the latest smartphones and older phones with software updates.

WiFi calling uses the WiFi network to make and receive calls and text messages over a cellular network. We can use this feature with any public or private WiFi network. Carriers route calls over the internet instead of your cellular network.

WiFi calls do not cost extra and will use the normal cellular calling plan you have for your daily usage. Carriers do not differentiate between a normal and WiFi call. WiFi calling feature also provides you relief from international roaming and charges. But you will still be charged according to your international cellular plan by your carrier.
