Cellular signals are horribly congested these days, and there are zones in my house where I just don't receive any cellular connectivity. If you're facing similar issues, Wi-Fi calling is the way to go. It relies on your home Wi-Fi network instead of your cell signal to make calls, and the added bonus is that the call quality is significantly higher. Here's how to enable it on your new Galaxy S20 phone.

Most carriers around the world now offer Wi-Fi calling, and it makes a huge difference to audio calls. My carrier rolled out Wi-Fi calling earlier this year, and the difference was immediately noticeable. Whenever I make a regular call now it feels like I'm talking into a can connected by a string. So go on ahead and enable Wi-Fi calling for crystal-clear calls on your Galaxy S20.
