Jio had rolled out the VoWiFi (Wi-Fi calling) feature last month to all its users across India. However, not everyone was able to access it, since the network’s VoWiFi feature supported only 138 devices. And the handsets which didn’t work with Jio’s Wi-Fi calling feature included the ones from Nokia. Well, there is good news for Nokia users today. Jio’s VoWiFi now supports four of Nokia’s smartphones for the feature to work – Nokia 6.1 Plus, Nokia 7 Plus, Nokia 7.1, and Nokia 8.1.
While VoWiFi should be enabled automatically, in case it doesn’t activate itself, you can switch it on manually by going to Settings > Network settings > and turning on the VoWiFi toggle. In an unlikely case of your device not showing the VoWiFi option (Even if Jio’s network supports it), try restarting the handset to resolve the issue. Considering that Jio has added four of Nokia’s smartphones to the supported list of devices for VoWiFi, it should soon start supporting the rest of the eligible devices.
For those who don’t know about VoWiFi, it uses your home (or any) Wi-Fi connection that has internet connectivity, to make calls. This comes handy when your smartphone doesn’t have cellular reception, as you can make calls using your Wi-Fi connection. Jio’s direct competitor, Airtel, has also rolled out VoWiFi recently and it supports more devices than that of Jio. Hopefully, Vodafone and Idea will rollout the VoWiFi feature soon.
