Hey Community!

 

We promised you that we were baking something sweet into our Marshmallow 6.0.1 OS update to your Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the day has come!

 

As of May 31st, Wi-Fi calling for Android will be available on the Samsung Note 5.   Later this summer, we plan on launching Android Wi-Fi calling to the LG G4 as well.

Other Samsung and LG Wi-Fi capable devices will be added throughout the year. Stay tuned!

 

 Edit* As of June 15th, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Plus will have Wi-fi Calling enabled.
