    Jio sees VoWiFi being a major push for sales of its feature phone, which already enjoys more than one-third of sales in India's feature phone market.

     

    The idea behind pushing the VoWiF to the mainstream was suggested by the Department of Telecommunications. This will allow users to make calls by using Wi-Fi connectivity in scenarios when there is no cellular connection.

    There are also reports which claim that Bharti Airtel and Vodafone is also testing VoWiFi services in India. Let's see when can we get to see the launch of this new technology in India.
