Airtel Begins Launching Voice-over-Wi-Fi Service (VoWi-Fi) in Delhi-NCR Region – Technology News, Firstpost

Telecom Talk reported that Airtel officially commenced service in the region. It will eventually spread to other circles, including Chennai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad, where the service is currently being tested. The advantage of VoWi-Fi is making and receiving calls over a Wi-Fi network. This means that users do not need to connect to the chopped mobile network for calls. However, for Airtel VoWi-Fi, users must use Airtel Broadband for this service to work.

Airtel mentions on his website that the service enables faster connections and "crystal clear" voice quality when calling over VoWi-Fi. It's better than what's offered in standard and VoLTE-enabled calls.

To activate the service, you need a supported device (see below) and an Airtel 4G SIM card in Delhi. Enter the SIM card settings in your device and activate VoLTE. Then you can activate Wi-Fi calls. After a restart, the VoWi-Fi icon should appear in the status bar.
