U Mobile has officially launched Wifi calling confirming earlier rumors about the rollout making U Mobile the first Malaysian Telco to implement this feature.
With the new service, customers will be able to make and receive voice calls over a personal or public WiFi connection.
WiFi Calling is available to both its prepaid and postpaid customers from today at no additional charge. With the new service, customers will be able to call and receive calls even in areas of limited network coverage such as basements, indoor or remote areas as long as they are connected to a WiFi terminal.
To enjoy WiFi Calling service, U Mobile customers need to ensure that the WiFi Calling function on their smartphone is enabled and that they are connected to U Mobile’s WiFi Calling service. Once that is done, WiFi Calling will be a seamless experience for U Mobile customers.
Calls made or received via WiFi Calling will be in High Definition (HD) Voice*. The service is available to U Mobile customers with iPhone 5C, 5S, SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6s and 6s Plus models. U Mobile will also be offering WiFi Calling to customers with Android phones soon.
