Airtel recently launched its Voice over Wi-Fi calling service. The service allows users to make telco-grade calls using their Wi-Fi connection. The technology uses Wi-Fi networks to create a dedicated channel for voice calls and allows users to make and take calls through it. Now the service expands itself to Mumbai, Kolkata, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. Also Read - Airtel adds 6 more Android smartphones to list of supported Wi-Fi Calling devices

Airtel Wi-Fi calling is seamless, meaning users can walk out of their Wi-Fi range and the call will automatically switch back to the mobile network. When users enter the Wi-Fi range, calls will automatically switch to Voice over Wi-Fi as well. What is notable is that calls made via the service need no extra charges for service. The application also consumes very less data. Also Read - Airtel Xstream Box now available at Rs 2,249 ahead of Tata Sky Binge+ launch
