How does Wi-Fi calling affect your phone calls
Wi-Fi calling allows you to make and receive calls via any Wi-Fi connectivity, even if your network signal is weak. If you have a dead spot in the bedroom or your phone’s bars plummet to one when you go into the bathroom at home, accessing your home Wi-Fi network to make and receive calls is an alternative. As soon as you dial a number that supports Wi-Fi calling, your phone will automatically discover the strongest Wi-Fi network in the vicinity and connect you to that network. In cases when the Wi-Fi or cellular network isn’t sufficiently strong enough, the call will be routed through the alternative option.
There is no obligation to use Wi-Fi for all of your phone calls unless you enable Wi-Fi calling on your mobile device. If so, your call will automatically be transferred to the Wi-Fi network if your carrier’s cellular network is poorer, or weaker, than the Wi-Fi network. Your cellular network may regard Wi-Fi calls in the same manner as other forms of phone calls. Using this feature won’t cost you anything more, and the minutes you use for Wi-Fi calls will be deducted from your monthly allowance on your phone plan.
Another area of concern is battery usage. If your smartphone is continually searching for cellular connection, it consumes your battery rapidly, particularly if you are using it while roaming in another country. WiFi calling has the ability to prolong the battery life of your phone since it is really not wasting its own battery while looking for cellular connections. However, if you have a poor Wi-Fi signal, calls made through Wi-Fi affect the quality of the calls you are making. Consequently, if you are in a poor Wi-Fi area, it has the ability to drain more phone battery because your phone will have to enable more of its operating systems to perform functions needed for Wi-Fi calling.
