Mobile carrier AT&T has announced that it is launching WiFi Calling on its network in the US, the feature will be made available to its customers that have eligible plans.
AT&T have made it available to their customers in the US as of yesterday and it allows you to make calls on your handset over WiFi where you have little or no cellular signal.
Wi-Fi Calling is a complement to AT&T’s already great network coverage. Along with a network that covers more than 99 percent of all Americans, our customers now have an option for making calls in areas where a cellular signal is tough to get – such as a home or office with dense building construction.
Once set-up, your phone will use Wi-Fi Calling automatically in places where you have limited or no cell signal, but you do have a Wi-Fi Internet connection.
In order to use Wi-Fi Calling, customers just need a compatible device with iOS 9 installed, a postpaid wireless account set-up for HD Voice and a Wi-Fi Internet connection. This includes a Wi-Fi connection set up at home or the office.
You can find out full details about WiFi calling on AT&T over at the company’s website at the link below.
