    Please use this thread for any wifi calling (VoWifi) related discussion, please do not open more threads.
    If you are using JIO, they are not officialy supporting any oneplus device yet, you need to contact them and ask for support.

    ============================================================

    Hello, is anyone able to use VoWifi service on their OP6t in India? I read news that both Jio and Airtel has launched VoWifi in India. I assume our device is capable of using this service only there needs to be a software update for the option to show the toggle for VoWifi.

    Hi , i have enabled vowifi on op5 and its working fine on airtel broadband with jio sim . I don't have airtel so I can't test.

    Steps to enable VOWIFI : (Try at your own risk)

    1. Dial *#800#
    2. Go to Oneplus logkit
    3. Go to function switch
    4. Check on Vowifi switch
    5. Reboot your phone
    6. go to settings -- wifi & internet -- sim & network
    7. Turn on WIFI Calling
    8. Reboot your phone

    Wait few minutes you will see volte will be replaced by vo-wifi .
    Try your luck with your broadband and your network .

    Here i have tested with Jio Sim with Airtel Xfiber broadband .

    If something goes wrong and you don't see your Volte options then go to settings -- system -- reset options -- reset wifi & mobile & bluetooth. It will revert to factory network settings. Note : it will reset all your network preference and saved wifi networks .

    Both of them just completed their beta testing phase. They haven't rolled it out for everyone yet. If everything works according to their plans, it should be out by January.

    I could see this option as well after I inserted my home airtel sim but even after the option is enabled, the phone doesn't seem to be able to utilise it. I still get network issues and neither could I see vo-wifi icon during the call. Please post here if you hear any update on this service.

    The rollout is currently limited to few cities and only available if you have a Airtel broadband/ fiber connection. OnePlus 6 already support wifi calling.

    VoWIFI service from Airtel is currently launched for everyone only in Delhi and it's only supported on Airtel Broadband as of now.. You can visit this page for more info-

    https://www.airtel.in/wifi-calling

    And people who are getting this service in other cities those are still in Beta/testing phase and only available to limited users.. We may see it rooling out soon in other parts also.. Yes 6/6T supports VoWIFI but we've to wait for it to be supported by carrier..

    Airtel had started rolling out vo-Wifi in Kolkata as well. It is working on my OnePlus 7T. However the switch between voLTE and voWIFI seems to be not stable yet. sometimes it falls back to voLTE without any reason under same WiFi signal. I hope it will work better with future Oxygen os updates/upgrades at Airtel side.

    Well, they haven't rolled out officially in Kolkata yet so that may be just testing.. So, wait for the offical rollout and do you use Airtel broadband or any other?

    Yes, I use Aritel vFibre at home. To me these problems looks like firmware issue. As it gets disconnected while switching bands of my dual band router. If you keep your phone sitting idle and it goes to sleep mode, voWiFi also gets disconnected. In both the cases it falls back to voLTE.

    If your router supports 2.4GHz and 5GHz then it'll connect to 5GHz by default.. If you don't want this then go to wifi preferences and disable "Intelligently select the best WiFi network"

    About sleep issue, try turning off Sleep standby optimization.. Go to Settings>>Battery>>Battery Optimisation>>Click on three dots>>Advanced optimisation and turn off Sleep standby optimization..

    I have slightly different setup, two router in extender configuration for 5GHz band and one covering 2.4GHz, so that I have good speed through out home. Now all three have same SSID with AP Isolation disabled so that all Chromecast devices (Android tv/1st gen Chromecast) indifferent of which band they use can communicate. :)

    And I prefer the sleep mode as it saves battery. I wish voWiFi will act like voLTE and will work even when phone is idle. I have sent an email to OnePlus support, let's see what response do I get.

    You were right. Looks like they are testing it coz it keeps coming on and off. Now it kinda stopped showing up all together.

    I am in India and using OnePlus 6T. i have recently upgraded the OS using Oxygen Updater to 10.3. But i don't see the WiFi caling feature in it. Are we getting this options in to the older devices like mine?

    Did you get WiFi calling before or did you force it?
