Earlier this year Vodafone announced that Wi-Fi calling would be launching on the network, today they have confirmed it, revealing that it is now available to eligible Vodafone customers.
The service allows customers to make a receive calls over a Wi-Fi connection rather than via their cellular network. This should mean that you are able to connect with contacts even in poor reception areas like the London Underground for instance.
You will also be able to receive your messages using the service.
Wi-Fi Calling is now available to Vodafone customers who subscribe to the Red, Red Value or Red+ bundle, available at no additional charge to the customer.
However to use the service you do need a compatible handset, and unfortunately Vodafone has not confirmed which handsets will be supported.
If it’s anything like EE’s Wi-Fi Calling service you will need a device from Vodafone to use the service, however Vodafone has not yet commented on that. With new devices like the iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 now featuring Wi-Fi Calling as standard, it’s possible that these devices will work also.
Thankfully there will be no need for an additional app once enabled, with no setup or settings to mess around with, just turn it on and go.
