What is the Deal with WiFi Calling?








There is quite a lot of stirring recently around WiFi Calling. It’s hard to believe that the first version of WiFi was almost 20 years ago.  Did you know that Wi-Fi is actually not an acronym for anything, though people seem to think it means “Wireless Fidelity” which would be a play on the highly used term “Hi-Fi” or “High Fidelity”.

WiFi calling has been in use for quite some time. You’ve probably used applications like BBM, Skype, WhatsApp, Viber and Facebook Messenger to contact family and even colleagues. They’ve made it much easier to call over the internet and bypass any wireless networks, or to make a call when the network is just plainly not available. These applications are supporting the trend of using Data to “talk”, instead of using the traditional voice network from carriers. Using WiFi to call does offer its set of challenges – they require the user to open up a separate application to make calls.  It also requires that the recipient of your call has the application installed on their device.
