gomo wifi calling

If you have any dead zones for signal coverage in your home, workplace, or anywhere else you may be, then you’ll love Wi-Fi calling. The premise is simple — rather than a phone call being routed over your connection to a cell tower, it gets routed over your internet connection instead. GoMo previously had the feature available for customers of its €14.99 a month deal, but now all customers can enable it on their smartphones for free.

Wi-Fi calling is a feature that a lot of people don’t know they need but will love when they get it. I never need to worry about my phone’s signal strength when it’s enabled, especially as in my apartment, I don’t typically get a mobile data signal. It’s a feature that I can’t live without, and thankfully, most modern smartphones do support it. You can enable it in your phone’s settings, and it’ll then work straight away without you needing to do anything.

The same goes for VoLTE too, which GoMo also made available for free to all of its customers. The additional benefit of VoLTE is that when you’re on mobile data and get a phone call, apps running in the background are no longer slowed down. Previously, if you were browsing and got a phone call, your phone would drop down to a much slower 3G or even 2G connection, meaning downloads or other background processes may stop. That’s no longer the case, and your phone calls will also sound a lot crisper, too.

If you want to check if your phone supports Wi-Fi calling and VoLTE, you can typically find out just by Googling the make and model. Most modern phones do nowadays, meaning that if you’re on GoMo, you can simply enable either feature. You don’t need to do anything else after that!
