Vodafone Idea (Vi) is finally rolling out its most anticipated Wi-Fi calling feature in India as per the latest report. It has been reported that the new service will be restricted to a couple of circles for now and it might expand in the near future. The report also claimed that the telco is testing the Wi-Fi calling services and it will be available in Maharashtra & Goa and Kolkata circles starting today. Meanwhile, the telecom operator has launched two new prepaid recharge plans of Rs 59 and Rs 65 for some selected circles. Both the plans are listed on the company’s official website. Here’s a close look at the new Wi-Fi calling service. 

Vi Launches Wi-Fi Calling Feature

As per Telecom Talk report, the customer support official has confirmed the launch of the most awaited Wi-Fi calling service by Vi while replying to a user query on Twitter. According to the report, the official sent a message to the user stating that the service is applicable for Maharashtra & Goa and Kolkata circles. The report also claimed that the service has started rolling out in both the circles starting today (December 15, 2020). 

The news of launching this feature was already available on the internet but there was no official confirmation. However, the telco was reportedly testing the service for quite a long time. Even at the beginning of 2019 some reports also claimed that Vodafone Idea will be the first telco to bring this service before anyone else in the market. But due to network integration of Vodafone and Idea, the telco faced a delay in launching the service and Reliance Jio and Airtel launched it much earlier. 

Going with the customer support member’s response, the Vi Wi-Fi Calling service will work with all the broadband operators. At the time of network congestion, users can conveniently switch to Wi-Fi calling. Meanwhile, the company has not listed the feature on its official website.
