Google Pixel 2

Just got announced today.

Does Fido know if it'll support VoLTE and WiFi calling on Fido yet?

It also uses eSIM. Wonder how that'll work with registration

Re: Google Pixel 2

I grabbed the Android 8.1 update and enabled WiFi calling from the menu but I'm not too sure if it's working. I turned on airplane mode and then turn the WiFi back on then I tried calling my number and it went to straight to voicemail

 

When I click Update Emergency Address in the WiFi calling menu it asked me for my phone number and it send me a verification code which I entered in then it shows me a page saying
Warning

To active Wi-Fi Calling on your iPhone, go to Settings, tap Phone, tap Wi-Fi Calling and toggle ON

 

Don't think I'm supposed to see that page and WiFi calling is turned on for my Pixel 2 XL

Re: Google Pixel 2

Weirdly enough I did the same thing as you and I get the same message about activating wifi calling on iPhones and I'm on Rogers. I think it's working though because when Wifi preferred is activated I get IWLAN mobile network type compared to LTE when I select mobile network preferred. sketch-1512547810080.png

Hey @Kenjuta @wtv1234

 

Thanks for flagging this. Would either of you happen to have a screenshot of the message that said "To activate on your iPhone..."?

Re: Google Pixel 2

oh I also want to note that my friend that had an iphone set up with WiFi calling and switched to a Pixel 2 XL doesn't see that message and has WiFi calling working on the Pixel 2 XL after android 8.1 update on Fido

 

this might seem like a setup/registration issue if someone never had WiFi calling before and trying to set it up for the first time on a Pixel 2

Re: Google Pixel 2

I'm getting the same thing. Also i cant tell if it is actually using WiFi calling. Sometimes there's an HD symbol on the call and other times there isn't

Re: Google Pixel 2

Hey @OutbreakCH

 

Thank you for the information, do you notice any changes in quality when you see the HD symbol?

Re: Google Pixel 2

To be honest with you its difficult to tell because it wouldn't be stable. During a call the HD symbol would come and go and i wouldnt notice any obvious drop in quality

Re: Google Pixel 2

if you turn on airplane mode and enable the wifi and your calls go through it means it's using wifi calling and it works

 

the HD symbol will appear if your voice is on VoLTE or WiFi calling i think so if you don't see HD maybe it dropped back down to HSPA?

Hey @user456912

 

Thank you for the screen capture. Have you tried the onboarding process while having the Wi-Fi disabled as well?
