Re: Google Pixel 3 4G & WiFi Calling

If you put your phone onto airplane mode and then turn on WiFi you should notice you're able to make and receive WiFi calls. On the android notification bar (pull it all the way down) on the bottom left it will say either O2 UK , O2 UK WiFi calling, or O2 UK 4g calling as the network depending which mode it's automatically switched to. You also need to have turned on 4g and WiFi calling on your account (you can do it through the my O2 app or on the website). I really noticed the difference with the 4g call quality (it also connects calls pretty much instantly).

Re: Google Pixel 3 4G & WiFi Calling

Well what a difference a day makes from being told it was never going to happen to there it is working. I have a Pixel 3 bought from Googe direct.  I installed the Android 9 System update initially with no effect so contacted O2 to get 4G and WiFi calling activated again (previously enabled on another phone) in case that was the problem and they re-applied the bolt-on.  Still no WiFi Calling option available on the Pixel 3 at that stage. Then today I checked for further updates and a System Security bug fix release came through which took some time to install and after a restart the WiFi calling option at last appeared in the mobile network advanced settings, switched it on and it worked straight away. Cheers.

Re: Google Pixel 3 4G & WiFi Calling

When you enabled wifi calling, did you get the option to selece mobile or wifi preferred?

 

It shows this on the guru step through process, but i dont get the option. When go back to the mobile network screen, it says mobile proferred, so not working for me Smiley Sad

Re: Google Pixel 3 4G & WiFi Calling

No I didn't get that option either.  It would be useful as it doesn't seem to reliably switch to WiFi when there is a poor quality cellular signal and only does when there is no signal

Re: Google Pixel 3 4G & WiFi Calling

Same here....

 

It finally switched over to wifi calling when I went into our bedroom - where thers is literally no signal.  The rest of house it reverts to mobile network, even thought the signal is shockingly poor.

Come on O2, give us the option to prefer wifi

Re: Google Pixel 3 4G & WiFi Calling

OnePlus and Sony already do this, and we’re already working with others to do the same. We’ve no further info or dates to share other than a ‘watch this space’.

Re: Google Pixel 3 4G & WiFi Calling

Will this be enabled for Pixel 2 as well? They are very similar phones after all.

Re: Google Pixel 3 4G & WiFi Calling

Can someone with working 4G/Wi-Fi calling confirm which Android build they're running?

(Navigate to Settings -> About Phone -> Build Number (the very bottom of the list on my device))

 

I don't have the option for any Wi-Fi calling under Settings -> Network & Internet -> Mobile Network -> Advanced 

 

I've forced my Pixel 3 XL to check for updates and am currently running build PQ2A.190205.001 (Android Security Patch Level: 5 February 2019), but no further updates available.

 

Can confirm Wi-Fi & 4G calling options are enabled on my O2 account
