How to enable WiFi calling on Jio & Airtel on Android and iPhone
Following the steps of Airtel, Reliance Jio also launched the voice-over WiFi calling feature. Don’t know what the heck this WiFi calling is? WiFi calling on Jio and Airtel allows you to make and receive calls over a connected WiFi network when there is no or weak signal without any extra charge.
I think the WiFi calling feature is extremely where you don’t usually get a network. This is something that every telecom operator must provide.
Now let’s see how this WiFi calling feature works on Jio and Airtel.
How WiFi calling works on Airtel and Jio
When you make calls, you are communicating through the telephone lines. Let’s say you are in the no-coverage zone but you are connected to a WiFi network. Even if you don’t have any network, you will still be able to make and receive calls.
This will work even when both the caller and receiver don’t have a network but are connected to a WiFi network. Only the caller or receiver who doesn’t have a network needs to be on WiFi while the other party can directly make the call without being on a WiFi network.
