Three has rolled out embedded WiFi calling, enabling users with poor mobile reception to make calls over WiFi instead.
Until now, Three customers have had to make do with the network's own inTouch app for WiFi calling, With the network's newly-launched embedded WiFi calling, though, Three customers "can simply connect to a WiFi network and use your phone for calls and texts wherever you are in the UK".
Three continued in a blog post: "It removes the need for the previous Three InTouch app that was able to also route calls and texts through WiFi. InTouch users will now receive a pop-up message informing them that they can now delete the app."
Three says that its new service will work with the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, LG's G5 and iPhones including the 5C, 5S, 6, 6S and 7 and 7 Plus. It has also promised that the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will be compatible from mid-February.
To get the feature working, iPhone users will need to head over to Settings > Phone > WiFi calling and switch it on. Android users with a compatible device will simply to have the latest software installed and Three's WiFi calling feature will automatically install and activate.
EE and Vodafone have been offering WiFi calling to UK customers for some time now, leaving O2 as the only network yet to offer the feature.
