Jio has confirmed the roll out of voice over WiFi or VoWiFi service for all their users, pan-India. As per a company statement, they have been testing this service since last few months, and now, the service is ready for commercial rollout.
Using Jio’s VoWiFi service, Jio users can now make absolutely free voice calls, as well as video calls to any number.
Separate charges or IUC fees for calling other network’s number won’t be applicable for Jio’s Voice over WiFi service.
With this service activated, users can switch from VoLTE to WiFi inside their homes/offices, where network coverage is low, automatically.
Hence, Jio’s VoWiFi will use both WiFi service and VoLTE service for ensuring that the users’ voice and video calls are not interrupted.
This is a big development, considering that network coverage inside rooms, and basements/ underground premises is often low, and VoWiFi from Jio can help users to overcome this obstacle.
On the launch, Akash Ambani, Director, Jio, said “At Jio, we are constantly innovating to enhance customer experience or solve their problems.”
