Reliance Jio has announced the launch of Voice and Video over Wi-Fi service all over India. This feature has been in the testing phase by Jio from the last few months, and now, and now Jio Wi-Fi Calling will be enabled pan-India between 7 and 16 January 2020.
During this period, users can use any Wi-Fi network for Jio Wi-Fi-calling at no additional cost. The voice and video calls will seamlessly switch-over between VoLTE and Wi-Fi to provide an enhanced voice/video-calling experience. Jio customers can also make Video over Wi-Fi calls.
You do need a supported device to make use of the feature. The list is rather long – a good thing in this case, but some of the more notable handsets include:
- Apple iPhone 6s and newer
- Google Pixel 3, 3A, 3A XL
- Motorola Moto G6
- Most Samsung Galaxy A, J, M and On series phones from around 2016 and newer; Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy S6 and newer flagships
- The popular Xiaomi Poco F1, Redmi K20, and K20 Pro
- Many other models from vivo, TECNO, Mobiistar, Lava, itel, Infinix and Coolpad
Reliance Jio VoWi-Fi service works on any broadband operator. For those who have been unaware of how this feature works – the service uses WiFi networks to create a dedicated channel for voice calls and allows customers to make telco-grade calls to any network. There are no charges on Jio Wi-Fi Calling service, however, users only need a compatible smartphone to use this service.
Commenting at the launch of this service, Akash Ambani, Director, Jio, said “At Jio, we are constantly innovating to enhance customer experience or solve their problems. At this juncture, when an average Jio consumer uses over 900 minutes of voice calls every month, and at a growing base of consumers, the launch of Jio Wi-Fi Calling will further enhance every Jio consumer’s voice-calling experience, which is already a benchmark for the industry with India’s-first all VoLTE network.”
