With more people than ever working remotely, it has become increasingly important for networks to ensure that customers are able to keep connected 24/7.
Wi-Fi Calling is just one of the many developments that has been implemented to help customers to do so. But with applications such as Whatsapp and Skype already available – venturing to something new can seem unnecessarily time consuming.
However, Wi-Fi Calling has the capacity to profit users at home, on-the-go and even at the office and with over 4 million people in the UK already benefiting every day – you shouldn’t be passing judgement too quickly.
(If you’re an iPhone, Samsung Galaxy or Sony Xperia owner, you might already have access the feature. Scroll down and find out how to get set up!)
What is Wi-Fi Calling?
“Wi-Fi Calling uses the phone’s normal dialler and contacts book to make calls, and the normal text button to send text messages. “
There is no need for an app, and friends don’t need to be using the same closed user group services to talk to or message each other. This means that there’s no need to use Whatsapp (or any other third-party application for that matter), all your calls and texts will be made, sent and received exactly the same.
And the best part? It’s free!
Why is it so good for business users?
Has there ever been a time where an important phone call has dropped, or has been disruptively patchy? You’ve been unable to send a text that you we’re desperate for the recipient to see?
It’s frustrating to say the least and critically, network issues could be damaging your business.
Rather than having to rely on the traditional mobile network, with Wi-Fi Calling you are able to make high-quality calls and super speed texts over the available Wi-Fi. It’s handy if you live, work or often travel to more remote areas as you are able to switch seamlessly between from the network to the available Wi-Fi connection if you suddenly lose signal.
This is why the feature particularly benefits business users on-the-go, for whom steady correspondence with customers and colleagues is vital but where the network can be unpredictable. Whether its on the underground or at home, the feature ensures that you remain connected when its important to do so – minimising the distance between you, your team and your audience.
