What is VoWiFi and how can you activate it on your Xiaomi

Although a few months ago we were talking about VoLTE technology and how to activate it in your Xiaomi , today we want to talk about VoWiFi . In contrast, this technology makes use of a WiFi connection to make calls even if we do not have mobile coverage.

Beyond GSM networks, phone calls have evolved in order to improve their quality and support. The arrival of the Internet has made these improve enormously , emerging technologies such as VoWiFI and VOLTE that are also compatible with our Xiaomi smartphones.

What is VoWiFi and what are its advantages after activating its use in a Xiaomi

To be exact, VoWiFI comes from Voice over WiFi , which is translated as "voice over WiFi". In itself, this technology allows us to make calls from our Xiaomi using the WiFi connection , something very interesting in areas where there is no mobile coverage.

Unlike VoLTE that makes use of mobile data, activating VoWiFi on a Xiaomi will make us use our WiFi connection to make calls. That if, although our smartphone is compatible, it will also depend on whether the mobile operator provides us with this service .

To all this, VoWiFi also has reduced energy consumption compared to other technologies. Its consumption is much less significant compared to VoIP calls or call services through applications such as Skype, Viper or WhatsApp.

How to activate VoWiFi on your Xiaomi

VoWiFi technology is generally disabled on our Xiaomi smartphones. To activate VoWiFi in a Xiaomi, Redmi or POCO we will only have to perform the following steps:
