Is Wi-Fi calling available on the new Pixel devices?

Hi,

I'm trying to find out whether the Pixel 4 XL will support wifi calling on Optus.

Can someone please confirm?

I cant quite trust the list of wifi calling handsets because with my Pixel 3 XL it took months (November till late Jan) before wifi calling was actually enabled. See https://yescrowd.optus.com.au/t5/Android/Wifi-Calling-Pixel-3-XL/td-p/495699 for the pain!

Thanks.

Re: Pixel 4 XL - wifi calling

Hi there, 


No official word as to whether it'll be available at launch, but it'll surely be something that becomes available soon after it's released. It's a standard feature across most of our current in-market handsets. 

 
If you have the option to toggle on/off WiFi calling and we've enabled VoLTE (which we'll normally enable at the point of activation), I don't foresee an issue. 

 
I’ve reached out the device testing team. Hopefully they can a bit more insight. We’ll keep you post posted.

Okay, we have a confirmation 🙂

Wi-Fi calling is available on the Pixel 4 devices, but it’s not activated by default. 

To activate Wi-FI calling, follow the steps below:

Settings > Network & Internet > Mobile network

  1. Select the SIM
  2. Select Advanced (last option)
  3. Select Wi-Fi calling and tap the button to enable, then you can set the preference option.

My pleasure 🙂

I'm sure already aware, but pre-order has now opened. Handsets will be delivered from 24.10.19.

If any other questions come up, give us a shout!

You mean the google pixel 3.5 xl lol that’s what it feels like an incremental minor mid cycle update in apple fashion of the s series

They're all incremental minor updates these days. The sad bit is that many seem to now need a "new" phone every 12 months.
