WiFi calling in India, Airtel or Jio? Which one is better?
Which one is better in Wi-Fi calling, Airtel vs Jio? In India, first Airtel started the VoWifi (Voice over Wi-Fi signal) calling or simply Wi-Fi calling feature in select cities followed by Reliance Jio. Already 1 million Airtel customers have opted for Wi-Fi calling feature till 10th Jan, 2020.
With WiFi calling feature, you can call without having mobile internet ON. It will help especially for indoor purpose, home or office, as usually the mobile signal strength remains weak there, but Wi-Fi signal is strong from any normal or FTTH broadband.
As indoor signal was the last-mile-signal-problem since the journey of mobile has started, not in India but all over the world. It was very much normal to run outside for network searching for outgoing call or incoming call. So, all these problems may be over with this feature VoWifi, as you can make or receive calls based on Wi-Fi signal from any broadband.
Also, the quality of voice in Wi-Fi calling is very rich as compared to mobile calling. With this feature, telecom companies may put some pressure back on whatsapp calling, wechat, skype etc. and give more values to telecom customers.

After fighting over the increased telecom tariff of Airtel vs Vodafone-Idea vs Jio in Dec 2019, now the fight is for WiFi calling. The above was the comparison of features of wi-fi calling between Airtel and Jio, in which both the operators are giving superb performance and customers are also accepting it easily.
For this, you don’t need to expense anything extra as it is free with any active talk-time plan, even for roaming also, but it may cost you for international calls like ISD charges.
For seamless talking, make VoLTE switch on too, means mobile internet ON, so that if the Wi-Fi signal strength goes down or unavailable due to broadband modem power off etc., call will be switched to mobile internet. Like now for ‘data’ usage, signal toggles/switches between Wi-Fi and mobile, same will occur for ‘call’ also, based on the signal strength.
