Wi-Fi Calling Now Available on Select Android Devices from AT&T
Starting today, AT&T customers with an LG G4 can make and receive calls and text messages over Wi-Fi.
It’s easy to activate Wi-Fi Calling. You’ll get a notification that it’s available. Then just install the software update.
We expect Wi-Fi Calling to be available on more Android devices soon.
Wi-Fi Calling is a complement to our already great network coverage. It’s another option in areas where a cell signal is tough to get – like a home or office with dense building construction.
To use Wi-Fi Calling, you’ll need:
- A compatible device
- A postpaid wireless account set-up for HD Voice
- A Wi-Fi internet connection
Once Wi-Fi Calling is set-up and your smartphone connects to a Wi-Fi network, it detects when to use Wi-Fi Calling in places with limited or no cell coverage.
AT&T Wi-Fi Calling lets you make and receive calls, and send and receive texts, like you would on the cellular network. You have the same telephone number and access to your contacts without having to add them to a separate app.
Wi-Fi calls are billed based on the number you are calling or messaging. It’s the same no matter where you're connecting to Wi-Fi. For instance, making a call on your U.S. number to another U.S. number is free of charge, even if you are overseas. You can use Wi-Fi Calling in the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, as well as most international countries.
