Vodafone Idea (‘Vi') has launched its WiFi calling services in Maharashtra and Goa, and Kolkata circles, a media report has said. It now plans to introduce it in other circles in a phased manner, the report added.
“Hi! Wi-Fi Calling (“Wi-Fi Calling”) is an integrated service that allows you to make and receive voice calls over a wireless Internet connection such as your home broadband, office broadband or public Wi-Fi. This should help you makevoice calls in areas with low network coverage. This is applicable for Maharashtra & Goa, Kolkata circles and will be available from 15th December 2020,” the telco's customer care support team was quoted as saying by the publication.
Last year, media reports had emerged saying that Vi would take the lead in launching Wi-Fi calling feature. However, the service launch got delayed because of the network integration of Vodafone and Idea.
