Google Pixel XL Wi-Fi calling?

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?

 

Thanks!

Hey Megan,

 

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.

 

Thanks alot!

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 @BasementOffice and welcome to the Community.

 

We don't have that service for that phone for the moment.


I didn't get news about this yet.

Hey @wren! Thanks for posting Smiley

 

Wi-Fi calling is offered on certain Fido Android phones purchased from Fido. Right now, here are the phones it's offered on:

 

• LG G4 (must be on Android 6.0 or above)
• LG G5 (must be on Android 6.0.1 or above)
• LG G6 (must be on Android 6.0 or above)
• Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge (must be on Android 6.0.1 or above)
• Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge (must be on Android 6.0.1 or above)

 

It's not offered on the Google Pixel, but keep an eye out on Fido.ca for any updates! Smiley

The phone's hardware supports it, the version of Android supports it. Why doesn't Fido support it?

The Pixel has been out for seven months. What is Fido waiting for?
