I bought a brand new Google Pixel XL 2 weeks ago and so far I have been unable to enable the Wi-Fi calling on it. I had it on my iPhone 6 and it worked amazingly well. The phone is running on Android 7.1 and the option seems to be missing. Anything special I should do or is it that Fido needs to push an update?

Solved! Go to Solution.
Well it isn't yet but I was told that it would be in the near future. The iPhone 7 is also missing. Any ETA on a carrier update that will enable this?
I know that the phone itself is capable of it, but needs some work from the carrier. Verizon has it enabled in the USA.
I can't call or send text message when in am in the office in the basement of a building. When will wifi calling be available for Google Pixel?
When I called fido today. The person said the wifi calling service has been discontinued since last year. Is it true? I will have to switch providers if this is true.
Hey @wren! Thanks for posting
