Airtel’s new VoWiFi technology that went live in Delhi NCR last week is only available on a handful of smartphones currently available in India. Xiaomi has just updated three existing devices to be compliant with the new technology. However, like every other manufacturer currently offering VoWiFi, Xiaomi has only brought the service to its range of flagship smartphones.
Xiaomi currently sells three flagship-grade smartphones in the country, namely the Redmi K20, Redmi K20 Pro, and POCO F1. While the K20 series uses hardware from mid-2019, the Poco F1 uses the same from 2018. This means you can now avail VoWiFi services from Bharti Airtel to make clearer calls if you own any of these devices and dwell in the NCR region.
VoWiFi services are available on the three devices with the MIUI 11 update. If the update hasn’t arrived automatically, users can check for it manually. Once the update is successfully installed, users need to head over to settings to manually activate VoWiFi. Users will also need to go to Airtel SIM Services and enable VoLTE, without which VoWiFi will not work.
In order to avail Airtel’s VoWiFi services, one needs to connect to an Airtel Xtreme broadband connection. Once the connection is successfully established, your device will automatically connect to calls using VoWiFi. Airtel plans to roll out VoWiFi services to other parts of India soon, and the company is currently testing the technology in Hyderabad and Bangalore.
