Wi-Fi calling has been a thing people have been talking about for ages. Slowly but surely, some of the major wireless providers have been rolling it out. T-Mobile and AT&T have already rolled their out. It seems that, as early as this week, Verizon will be rolling out their version of it. Although, not everyone will be getting it next week.
The Verge is reporting that Verizon will be “flipping the switch” on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the S6 Edge beginning December 8th. As for any of you iPhone users, you will have to wait until “early next year” for that to happen.
It will be rolled out in phases through a software update. You will need to look out for it if you are one of the luck S6 and S6 Edge. Verizon is calling the Wi-Fi calling as part of their “Advanced Calling” feature, which is their branding for VoLTE HD Voice calls as well as their own video calling.
So if you have the latest in Samsung hardware, best be looking for that software update but if you do not get it on the 8th, relax. You will get it as some point.
