Jio vs Airtel Wi-Fi Calling
A major bell that Jio strikes right is the availability of the service throughout India. This puts the network ahead of competitor Airtel’s Wi-Fi calling. Further, any Wi-Fi network can be used for Jio’s WiFi calling implementation. Moreover, Jio has brought WiFi calling support not just for Voice calls, but for Video calls as well.
“At Jio, we are constantly innovating to enhance customer experience or solve their problems. At this juncture, when an average Jio consumer uses over 900 minutes of voice calls every month, and at a growing base of consumers, the launch of Jio Wi-Fi Calling will further enhance every Jio consumer’s voice-calling experience, which is already a benchmark for the industry with India’s-first all VoLTE network,” said Mr. Akash Ambani, Director, Jio.
Jio Wi-Fi calling will work on many popular smartphones across brands like Xiaomi, Vivo, Google and Apple. Even the likes of Coolpad, itel, Tecno and Lava smartphones are included in the list. Surprisingly, OnePlus is not included yet in the supported devices list.
