Google Enables VoLTE Calling On Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro

According to Google's blog post, Google will enable the VoLTE feature on the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro, powered by the new Tensor processor in select markets. Do note that, the additional VoLTE calling feature is only enabled on EMEA/APAC variants of the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro.

What Is VoLTE And Is It Important?

VoLTE or voice-over LTE is one of the prominent features of the 4G network. On phones that do not support VoLTE, the network is switched back to 2G or 3G while making a voice call. Due to the limited bandwidth, the audio calls made using 2G or 3G will not be as clear as a voice call made using VoLTE technology.

When a phone switches to a 2G/3G network, the 4G connection disconnects, hence, it also affects the download and upload speed during the call. When it comes to VoLTE, users can still get the best download and upload speeds even during a voice call. Hence, VoLTE is one of the prominent features of 4G wireless technology.

Most of the smartphones in markets like India support VoLTE, including budget and affordable smartphones. Given the very same feature is now coming to the European and Asian market variants of the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro, users will now be able to get more from these devices.

Is This Feature Coming To Indian Market?

While Google has not officially launched the Pixel 6 or the Pixel 6 Pro in India, the devices are available on platforms like Amazon. Given the additional VoLTE feature is only enabled in select markets, if the device is being imported from a specific market, the Indian variant of the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro will also receive this update.
