There will be no charges for calls made over Airtel Wi-Fi calling service. The telecom giant also claims that the calls made over the new service will use very minimal data. You must note that there's no special app required to use the 'Airtel Wi-Fi Calling' service. All you need is a compatible device and the below mentioned configuration steps.

1) The first step is to check your smartphone compatibility. Visit airtel.in/wifi-calling to see if your smartphone is compatible for the service.

2) Check for the latest software upgrade as the Airtel Wi-Fi service only works with the latest Android software versions.

3) Go to Wi-Fi settings and enable 'Wi-Fi Calling'.

Once you complete the aforementioned steps, try making a voice call from the same spot where you have faced call drops or connectivity issues in past. We would also recommend you to switch on VoLTE in the background for an interrupted calling experience. If your Wi-Fi network drops, the ongoing call will automatically switch to VoLTE network. Calls made over Airtel Wi-Fi service will show a new Wi-Fi icon on the dialer screen. It is also worth mentioning that the Wi-Fi calling service will also be functional in national roaming.
