JioFixedVoice is Reliance Jio’s landline calling service which comes bundled with JioFiber broadband service. It’s expected that all the JioFiber FTTH broadband plans will ship with free JioFixedVoice service, and alternatively, the Mukesh Ambani-owned telco may launch standalone landline plans similar to BSNL. JioFixedVoice service was launched just a few weeks ago before the Annual General Meeting of Reliance Industries and the customers of JioFiber are already enjoying free voice calls through a landline telephone. If you have a JioFixedVoice connection, then there’s another thing which is worth noting; Reliance Jio allows users to make free voice calls to any number via JioFixedVoice number through a smartphone. Users will have to set up the same JioFixedVoice number on their smartphones to enjoy free voice calling via JioCall mobile app available for both Android and iOS smartphones.
How to Activate JioFixedVoice Landline Service on MyJio App?
Reliance Jio is providing the JioFixedVoice landline calling service to all the JioFiber customers. But there’s a small procedure involved to get the service activated. First of all, a user will have to download the MyJio on their smartphone and log into the JioFiber account using register mobile number. Make sure you’re logging into MyJio app using JioFiber registered mobile number and not any other mobile number. After logging in, you can easily activate voice calling service by following the on-screen steps.
JioCall Setup Process on Smartphones Detailed
Aforesaid, Reliance Jio allows users to make voice calls for free on smartphones using the JioFixedVoice connection. For the unaware, Reliance Jio has an application called JioCall which acts as an alternate dailer on smartphones, but in this case, JioCall app allows users to register through the JioFixedVoice ten-digit landline number for making voice calls.
To get started, download the JioCall app from Google Play Store or Apple App Store for free. After downloading, give all the permissions required by the app to proceed further. The application will now provide three options at the first boot for the setup process- a Jio 4G SIM card, JioFi connection and Fixed landline service. If your smartphone lacks VoLTE service, you can choose the first option; If you want to make voice calls through your JioFi number, you can choose the second option, and lastly, if you have a JioFixedVoice service, you can click the third option to get started.
After hitting the Fixed option, ‘Tap on the SSID’ to register. The app will now require an OTP which will be sent to your JioFiber registered mobile number. You’re all set to make voice calls from your smartphone for free using the JioFixedVoice landline number. Reliance Jio is allowing users to set up JioCall app on six smartphones using the JioFixedVoice single number.
But there’s a small catch. The smartphone on which the JioCall app has installed should stay connected to the JioFiber router to make and receive free calls. This is one of its unique services from Reliance Jio and it’s pretty much similar to BSNL Wings as well.
In other news, JioFiber commercial launch will start on September 5, and on the same day, the broadband plans of JioFiber will be released too.
