Re: WiFi Calling and VoLTE for Google Pixel

I thought that my phone would stay on LTE during a call even if the other party didn't have VoLTE on his device, am I wrong?

 

I know the sound quality won't be better, but my phone should stay on LTE, right?

Re: WiFi Calling and VoLTE for Google Pixel

That's correct, your VoLTE connection to Rogers does not depend on who you are calling, although the audio quality possible will be dependent on both endpoint devices.

Re: WiFi Calling and VoLTE for Google Pixel

That's my understanding too.  VoLTE is essentially VoIP and like any other VoIP, if the other end doesn't support it, their end of the connection is still a traditional call, but your end should still be VoLTE as far as Rogers.

Re: WiFi Calling and VoLTE for Google Pixel

Hello @FoleyRose

My G4, S7 edge ( before I sold it) and my current a S8 Plus work with VOLTE even if the other person doesn't have VOLTE on or have it into their phone.

Calling my dads 9900 Bold, my moms iPhone 6 and my sisters Priv which all don't have VOLTE and not enabled, still shows LTE on mine during a call. Also the speeds are the same. I noticed this after running a few tests to see.

Re: WiFi Calling and VoLTE for Google Pixel

Well, that confirms that VoLTE still isn't working for me.

Re: WiFi Calling and VoLTE for Google Pixel

Sorry guys for introducing noise in here...I thought based on what I read that VoLTE would require both parties to support it. Thanks for correcting that assumption...and since I can't test the feature myself due to Rogers not really updating my Pixel and/or the current VoLTE support they have for my phone I'll have to wait.

UPDATE

 

For anyone who has not received the OTA update; please be advised that Google is rolling out in stages. Currently at 50%, it is expected to be 100% released starting tomorrow.

 

If you choose to download directly from Google; make sure you download version: NKG47L

 

Also, please remember that VoLTE is only supported on Pixel and Pixel XL devices purchased from Rogers. Devices purchased elsewhere are not supported.

 

 

Thanks,

From what I can see wifi calling still isn't provisioned on the phone.
