Airtel is now rolling out Wi-Fi calling feature in some parts of the country. This feature will allow Airtel users, both prepaid and postpaid to use the Wi-Fi network for making voice calls. The company says that there will be no extra charge for calls made over Airtel Wi-Fi Calling and it will consume minimal data.
How to enable Airtel WiFi Calling?
Airtel users will need to enable this setting in their phones to utilize this feature. Then the phone automatically makes the call using either 4G network or Wi-Fi depending on the network strength or Wi-Fi coverage. It will also let the phone switch between these networks.
