Three has finally rolled out app–free Wi–Fi calling, allowing users of its network to make and take calls whenever they're in a place that has no phone signal, such as the London Underground.
Until now, Three users have had to make do with the network’s own inTouch app for Wi–Fi calling. This has been frustrating for customers, as EE and Vodafone offer Wi–Fi calling without the need to download an app.
Three says that its new service will work with Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, LG’s G5’s and iPhones including the 5c, 5s, 6, 6s and 7. It has also promised that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will be compatible soon.
Those using other phones will have to make do with the inTouch app for the time being.
iPhone owners should head to the Settings app, tap Phone and then enable Wi–Fi calling by updating carrier settings. Beforehand, users should make sure they have the most up–to–date version of iOS.
To enable Wi–Fi calling on LG and Samsung devices, users should update to the latest available software.
