Jio brings free Wi-Fi calling: Here's how to enable it

Last month, Airtel released the free Wi-Fi calling aka Voice-over-Wi-Fi (Vo-WiFi) and now, the arch-rival Reliance Jio has announced to bring the same service in India.

The company says that the Wi-Fi calls to Indian numbers, regardless of users' location within India, are free of charge, but for the international numbers, it will be billed under 'International Calls'

What is Wi-Fi calling?
It is similar to making calls on cellular network and users need not have to do any specific task to make Wi-Fi calling. The phone depending on the strength of the cellular network and internet signal on the local Wi-Fi router (home or office), switches automatically between the two so that there is no disruption during the conversation.

The phone user just has to switch on the Wi-Fi calling the settings, that's it. 

This Wi-Fi calling comes handy for the user standing in a basement car parking lot of a building or an elevator, where most cellular network signals get disconnected. If Wi-Fi calling is enabled, the phone switches to the building's wireless router and maintain a steady connection.
