In December, Vodafone Idea (Vi) announced that it is launching the VoWi-Fi calling service for its users. After four months of the announcement, the telco has made good progress and has made the VoWi-Fi calling service available in five circles of India. However, not every subscriber of the telco can leverage the service to make calls in the concerned circles. Only users with select smartphones that are compatible with Vi’s VoWi-Fi service will be able to use the Wi-Fi calling feature.
For the unaware, the company is providing Wi-Fi calling service in the Maharastra & Goa, Gujarat, Kolkata, Delhi, and Mumbai circles only. More cities are expected to be added to the list very soon. The telco has recently added new premium smartphones on its list that will now support VoWi-Fi service. Read ahead to find out the names of the devices.
