Vodafone UK bringing Wi-Fi Calling to the Samsung Galaxy S6

Vodafone is brining Wi-Fi Calling to Samsung hardware later this year. The company will launch the feature on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge this autumn, allowing owners to place calls using a Wi-Fi connection. Should you find yourself often located inside a building (be it an office or your home) with poor signal, this may be the ideal solution for you.

The UK mobile operator's Wi-Fi Calling even works on the London Underground. All you need is a Wi-Fi connection and you're good to go. It's 2015, who needs mobile network connectivity anyway? Wi-Fi calling from Vodafone follows the launch of HD Voice and 4G+, further enhancing the experience offered to customers nationwide.

  • Spend enough time getting an ear bashing for things I didn't do when I'm at home. Don't want an S6 blaring the wife's rants at me when I'm out without even dialling first. No sir! :p
  • Why do people look at WiFi Calling a bad thing?
    Sometimes I work in areas with no cellular signal from any carrier, but as long as there is a WiFi connection I still receive calls and texts. Galaxy Note 4 {Sprint 5.1.1}
    3-day Power with a 9600mAh Extended Battery.
  • I think wifi calling is a good thing. However, buying a phone from carphone warehouse here in UK. It has btu firmware so no wifi calling. Only wifi calling if you bought from carrier. EE in my case. So even though I'm on a EE contract no wifi calling for me. Posted via the Android Central App
