Calling on WiFi using your Android device can be a convenient option when you have limited or no cellular network coverage. With just a few simple steps, you can easily make calls over WiFi and stay connected. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of calling on WiFi using your Android smartphone.

Step 1: Check for Compatibility

Before you begin, ensure that your Android device supports WiFi calling. Not all smartphones have this feature, so it’s essential to check if your device is compatible.

To check if your Android phone supports WiFi calling:

  • Step 1: Open the Phone app on your device.
  • Step 2: Look for the three-dot menu icon or the settings gear icon at the top-right corner of the screen and tap on it.
  • Step 3: From the drop-down menu, select “Settings.”
  • Step 4: Scroll down and find the “WiFi Calling” option. If it’s present, your device supports WiFi calling; otherwise, it may not be available.

Step 2: Enable WiFi Calling

If your device supports WiFi calling, follow these steps to enable it:

  • Step 1: Open the Phone app on your Android smartphone.
  • Step 2: Tap on the three-dot menu icon or settings gear icon at the top-right corner of the screen.
  • Step 3: Select “Settings” from the drop-down menu.

If you are using stock Android:

  • Step 4: Scroll down and find the “WiFi Calling” option. Tap on it.
  • Step 5: Toggle the switch to enable WiFi calling.

If you are using a customized Android version (e.g., Samsung, LG, etc.):

  • Step 4: Look for “Network & Internet,” “Connections,” or a similar option, depending on your device.
  • Step 5: Tap on “WiFi Calling” or a related option.
  • Step 6: Toggle the switch to enable WiFi calling.

Step 3: Make a Call over WiFi

Once you have enabled WiFi calling on your Android device, making calls over WiFi is simple and straightforward. Follow these steps to make your first call:

  • Step 1: Open the Phone app on your Android smartphone.
  • Step 2: Enter the phone number you want to call, including the area code if necessary.

If you are dialing an international number, remember to add the country code before the phone number.

  • Step 3: Tap on the green call button to initiate the call.

Your Android device will automatically detect if there is a WiFi network available for calling. If there is no cellular network coverage or a weak signal, your phone will prioritize using WiFi for the call.

Troubleshooting Tips

If you encounter any issues while making WiFi calls, here are a few troubleshooting tips:

  • 1. Check your WiFi connection: Ensure that your Android device is connected to a stable WiFi network with internet access.
  • 2.

    Restart your device: Sometimes, a simple device restart can resolve connectivity issues.

  • 3. Contact your service provider: If the problem persists, reach out to your service provider for further assistance and troubleshooting.

That’s it! You have successfully learned how to call on WiFi using your Android smartphone. Enjoy the convenience of making calls even when cellular network coverage is limited or unavailable.

Note: WiFi calling may consume data if you are not connected to a WiFi network with unlimited data. It’s advisable to connect to a WiFi network whenever possible to avoid additional charges from your service provider.
