What is Wi-Fi calling?
As the name suggests, Wi-Fi calling makes use of lnternet connection instead of a mobile network signal. This comes handy when you are in a remote location with low network service, but has fiber-based internet service with a router. When Wi-Fi calling is activated, the phone will be able to switch between the Wi-Fi and cellular network for seamless conversation. 

Airtel says that this a free service. But for now, Wi-Fi calling is now available in Delhi and NCR. It is expected to be expanded to other regions of India in the coming days.

New update: Now, Airtel has expanded Wi-Fi calling support in more regions-- Mumbai, Kolkata, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu.
