The war of the major telecom companies in India has truly been heating up in the past few months. From the revamped plans to services offered, it’s been a tight race between the three major telcos in India. Just a few days ago, we reported that Airtel had started rolling out its VoWi-Fi service dubbed Airtel Wi-fi calling in the Delhi NCR region with plans to make the service available in more Indian cities in the coming months. 

Not to be outdone, Reliance Jio has seemingly rolled out their version of VoWi-fi service in the Nashik region in Maharashtra. According to a report on TelecomTalk, a Twitter user shared screenshots of the service. Just a note, the screenshots were taken from an Apple device, so take it for what it is. What this means is that Reliance are taking Airtel head-on with this service. We think that this service will only be able to work across Reliance Jio networks. 

Reliance has not released a list of which phones will be compatible with the service but we expect an announcement or two in the coming months. Maybe the company is testing out the service in a smaller region to iron out all the kinkc and bugs before it makes the service available to the rest of the country. Whatever the case, this tech could be the future of voice calling in India.
