We often switch to other mobile networks due to network congestion and call drops. This is a very common problem in metro cities where there are high-rise buildings or in basements where there is a weak cell signal. A feature of Wi-Fi calling in iPhone and Android smartphones has been added by the makers, but if not enabled users can face low networks issues.
This results in you not getting important calls and most of the time outgoing calls will have bad reception or call drop issues. Addressing this problem, the latest mobile phones these days come with the feature of Wi-Fi calling for stable voice calls. So in this article, we will show you how to make stable calls using the Wi-Fi calling feature on your iPhone or Android smartphone.
The biggest USP of the Wi-Fi calling feature is that the users will be able to experience better signal quality with the service, and the best part is it is absolutely free. Yes, you are not charged extra to make a free call over Wi-Fi.
All you need to do is just check your device’s compatibility for Wi-Fi calling. The users can easily turn on the voice-over Wi-Fi calling feature when they are inside their offices or at home. But one needs to be in a stable Wi-Fi zone to make voice calls over broadband/internet to any number.
