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?
