Three introduces app-free wi-fi calling for iOS and Android


The new service replaces the previous Three InTouch app that the network's users previously needed to launch separately to enable Wi-Fi calling. The operator joins rivals EE and Vodafone in offering the service "natively" - without the need for an app.

The company will now be issuing an alert to those who have a compatible device but are using Three InTouch, telling them they can delete the application and use embedded Wi-Fi instead.

With the network's newly-launched embedded WiFi calling, Three customers "can simply connect to a WiFi network and use your phone for calls and texts wherever you are in the United Kingdom".

Will Wi-Fi Calling revolutionise your smartphone experience?

Customers will have to make sure that they have the latest phone software and carrier settings installed on their devices, in order to use the feature.

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 means that Three customers are now able to make calls at the 250 or so stations on the London Underground which offer Wi-Fi access-an additional way to endear busy commuters to one another during rush hour. Samsung's S7 and S7 edge will be compatible from mid-February, it said.

Once this is done, users need to go to Settings Phone WiFi Calling to activate the service.

Things have changed, however, with Three having now enabling the feature from the off, assuming you have a compatible handset and the network's latest software patch that is.
