Android and iOS users enabled with embedded WiFi calling on Three UK

Tuesday, January 31st 2017

Three UK has finally enabled embedded Wi-Fi calling on its network for users of iOS and Android devices, that allows them to make voice calls or send text messages, using a Wi-Fi service and without the need of a third-party app. The major mobile operator's announcement, which has been a long time due, would be greatly useful for customers not getting a mobile signal or coverage.


Three UK has been slow to get this feature working properly as already rivals like EE and Vodafone have a working solution since 2015. However, users of iOS from 5c upwards need to see that they are running the latest software (v10.2+) and thereafter the feature should be parked under Settings – Phone – WiFi Calling. On the other hand users of Android devices must have a compatible gadget with the latest firmware installed, to use the feature which can activate automatically. This feature for Android users was live at the end of last year, but iOS has followed only now, hence Three UK's announcement.
