Verizon has announced that it will launch Wi-Fi Calling for iOS devices early next year.
However, the company is launching Wi-Fi Calling for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge on December 8th.
Beginning December 8, Verizon customers with Advanced Calling on two different Samsung smartphones can make and receive calls and initiate video calls over a Wi-Fi Internet connection. Verizon customers already enjoy the largest and most reliable wireless network in the United States, and Advanced Calling with Wi-Fi Calling provides an alternative for those who wish to use Wi-Fi in the home, office or while traveling.
Wi-Fi Calling will initially be available on the Samsung Galaxy S 6 and Samsung Galaxy S 6 Edge and will be rolled out as a software update in phases. Additional Android and iOS devices will receive Wi-Fi Calling capabilities via future software updates expected early next year.
The FCC granted Verizon the waiver needed to launch Wi-Fi Calling last month. The feature is already available on other carriers including AT&T and T-Mobile.
