What is Wi-Fi Calling?

Wi-Fi calling allows a user to make and receive a voice or a video call over a Wi-Fi connection instead is using a cellular connection. If you have a Wi-Fi connection in an area where the cellular network is weak, the phone automatically switches the call to a call over Wi-Fi and used the same Wi-Fi network to give you better connectivity.

You don’t have to pay anything extra for Wi-Fi calling and just need to make sure that you are in the range of a Wi-Fi connection and your phone offers Wi-Fi calling.
