It has been previously reported on a number of occasions that Vi (Vodafone Idea) has been testing its Wi-Fi calling service for some time now. Both Airtel and Jio have their respective WiFi calling services in place, but all the three are said to have started testing at the same time.
Vodafone Idea took some more time to launch their service in India. Vi is yet to officially announce the Vi calling service including the rollout details across other circles.
Vi WiFi calling service allows users to switch to Wi-Fi calling whenever they are in a network-congested area for better connectivity and calling capabilities.
