VoWiFi is a complimentary service provided by the Mobile Operators supporting the 4G LTE network. WiFi calling allows users seamlessly to transfer calls between the LTE network and any of the Wifi network that they already use in their Home Or Office.
Benefits of VoWiFi
VoWiFi allows you to do HD voice calls or send text messages with no additional cost. Connect your device to your nearest WiFi / Hotspot and you can use it as a normal network from your native dialler and text app. The biggest advantage of WiFi Calling is improved connectivity in indoor spaces like in your home or the office where network connectivity is poor or weak.
