Make calls over Wi-Fi

In some cases, you can call people over a Wi-Fi connection instead of a mobile operator. Not all operators support calls over Wi-Fi.

Before you can make calls over Wi-Fi, you'll need to turn on the feature in your settings.

Important: Some of these steps only work on Android 6.0 and up. Learn how to check your Android version.

Turn on Wi-Fi calling

Important: You may incur additional charges for making calls over Wi-Fi, so check with your mobile service provider for details.

Use a mobile operator’s Wi-Fi calling

  1. Open the Phone app .
  2. Tap More More And then Settings.
  3. Tap Calls.
  4. Tap Wi-Fi calling. If you can't see this option, it will be because your operator doesn’t support this feature.
    • You can use Wi-Fi calling without a service on some operators.
    • If your operator doesn't offer Wi-Fi calling, you can still use this feature through a voice-over IP service.

Make a call using Wi-Fi

Once you’ve set up Wi-Fi calling, you can make a call over Wi-Fi just as you would any other call. When you’re connected to the Internet, you’ll see 'Internet call' or 'Wi-Fi calling' on the notification screen.

When you're not connected to Wi-Fi, your calls will use your mobile operator, if you have one.
