HIGHLIGHTS

Reliance Jio has officially announced its VoWiFI service in India.

The WiFi calling option by Jio works with all WiFi networks.

Here’s all you need to know about the service.

Soon after the report of Reliance Jio secretly rolling out VoWiFi service broke out, the company went ahead and officially announced the service. VoWiFi calling enables users to place voice calls over a WiFi network and this comes in handy when you are in an area with weak cellular connectivity. The option will now be available for all Jio users and the notable highlight is that Jio’s VoWiFI service works over any WiFi network. Here’s all you need to know about the new Jio VoWiFi service. 

When one uses WiFi calling, their balance will still be deducted as it is treated as a regular voice call. Some data is also consumed from the WiFi network one is connected to while using the service and as per Jio, less than half MB per minute will be used during voice calls but more will be used while placing video calls. To enable Jio WiFi service, users need to head over to the Settings menu of their phone and search for Wi-Fi calling option. Tap on the toggle to enable it and one should be able to place calls over WiFi when their cell network reception is weak. 

A handset will automatically switch between VoWiFi and VoLTE while on a call for a better overall experience, says Jio. While VoWiFi is generally used for voice calls, Jio says its users will also be able to use it for video calling. The Jio WiFi calling service will be made available across India between January 7 to January 16. 

Jio has rolled out its VoWiFi service for 155 handsets and you can check whether your phone is compatible here. The company will also roll out its VoWiFi service Internationally in the next few weeks, which is advertised to be a “price disruptor” and beneficial for postpaid consumers. One condition that needs to be met to avail Jio’s VoWiFi service is a compatible smartphone with an active Jio tariff plan.
