Bharti Airtel has launched its voice over Wi-Fi service – Airtel Wi-Fi Calling — to enhance voice calling experience for Airtel smartphone customers.
Airtel Wi-Fi Calling enables customers with Wi-Fi at home or office to get excellent signal quality indoors. There will be no extra charge for calls made over Airtel Wi-Fi Calling and the application consumes minimal data. The service is currently available to Airtel customers in Delhi NCR and will be rolled out across India.
“Seamless indoor coverage has been a demand from customers but getting permissions for site installations has always been a big challenge for mobile operators, particularly in top metros,” Randeep Sekhon, chief technology officer of Bharti Airtel said.
Airtel Wi-Fi Calling does not require any app and can be configured on the smartphone.
Smartphones such as Apple iPhone series starting 6s and above, Redmi K20, Redmi K20 Pro & POCO F1 from Xiaomi, Samsung’s J6, A10s, On6, M30s smartphone and all models of OnePlus 7 Series will support Airtel Wi-Fi Calling.
The service is currently compatible with Airtel Xstream Fiber home broadband and will soon be compatible with all broadband services and Wi-Fi hotspots.
