    Hello Community!

    Great news! VoWiFi services now operational on Airtel Network (Chennai, India). My phone is on my home wifi with my Internet broadband services from Hathway. Did some preliminary tests and it works pretty well. Voice clarity is very good. I tried calling from my phone (on VoWifi) to another phone on (VoLTE) and the voice clarity is very good. Almost as good as Google Duo quality (well almost).

    I believe, OP7T should also work as they too support VoWiFi.

    UPDATE: Airtel has confirmed that VoWiFi (aka WiFi Calling) is supported in the following OnePlus phones (check: https://www.airtel.in/wifi-calling):
    • OnePlus 7
    • OnePlus 7 Pro
    • OnePlus 7T
    • OnePlus 7T Pro (also the McLaren Edition)

    Check out some stats below:

    Note: When VoWiFi is active, VoLTE gets temporarily suspended for that sim. The moment you disconnect from WiFi, it switches back to VoLTE.

    Indeed. And the major advantage here is that it's gonna offload alot of network traffic from LTE carrier channel to broadband internet channel helping to free the spectrum of congestion. Service providers (and consumers) will benifit alot from it.

    Works on OP6 too. I never get good reception in my home and I always had to run to a specific place where I get some signal in my home to attend calls. Now I can make and receive calls from any place in my home. Voice quality is amazing.
