Will Jio Wi-Fi Calling Be Made Available on OnePlus Smartphones?
While the service has been rolled out in various circles, Jio Wi-Fi Calling is currently unavailable on OnePlus handsets. “What wifi calling feature is not enabled on OnePlus devices. There is a huge chunk of users using OnePlus devices but non of the devices are supported by Jio. I am really surprised. You are supporting some unknown brands but not OnePlus,” says Uday Parikh on Twitter.
Reliance Jio has replied saying “We’ve got you covered! Currently your device is not compatible. However, we have taken it up with the device manufacturer.” The official account of OnePlus Support also has responded to a similar query saying that while they had no official confirmation regarding the issue they are currently “working on it”.
“Thank you for reaching out to us. As our team is already working on it. We request you to stay tuned to our social media channels for further updates,” says the official OnePlus Support account. Furthermore when the consumer requested for a timeline on when the Jio Wi-Fi Calling feature would be available on OnePlus handsets, the account responded saying “As of now, we don’t have a tentative date to share with you. We request you to stay tuned.”
