In a bid to enhance a users calling experience, Bharti Airtel has launched its voice over Wi-Fi service – ‘Airtel Wi-Fi Calling’.
The service has been designed to enhance a user’s calling experience especially when they are indoors. “With ‘Airtel Wi-Fi Calling’, customers with Wi-Fi at home or office will get excellent signal quality indoors,” the telecom said in a press release.
Moreover, the company added that the service would use minimal phone data and would be free of cost. Currently, the service has only been released for Delhi NCR based Airtel customers. Across country support for Airtel ‘Wi-fi Calling’ will be realised soon.
To note, the Airtel ‘Wi-Fi Calling’ will work only for mobile phones that support the ‘Wi-Fi Calling’ feature. And surely not many devices support the same.
Currently, smartphone models like all iPhone series starting 6s and above, Xiaomi Redmi K20, Redmi K20 Pro & POCO F1; Samsung J6, A10s, On6 and M30s; and all OnePlus 7 series models support the ‘Wi-Fi Calling’ feature.
If your device is compatible with the feature and you want to enable the same, go to Mobile Settings and Switch On Wi-Fi Calling.
As a customer obsessed brand, we are constantly working on improving customer experience based on their feedback. Seamless indoor coverage has been a key ask from mobile customers but getting permissions for site installations has always been a big challenge for mobile operators, particularly in top metros. ‘Airtel Wi-Fi Calling’ is another pioneering technology intervention from Airtel and will go a long way in making the voice call,” Randeep Sekhon, Chief Technology Officer, Bharti Airtel said while releasing the service.
