Anyone know if O2 are going to support this useful feature?

All Apple devices are supported.

All others listed here so keep an eye on it for updates

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

I'm not talking about Wi-Fi calling itself but the ability to use e.g.  your iPad to make calls via Wi-Fi when your phone is not nearby.

Not since Tugo was closed down and not likely to be offered in the future.

Shame. EE support it but I do want to drop them (EE is an ESIM on my iPhone).

I can effectively get what I want by having a data plan on my Apple Watch so I'm OK there. I'm still not sure we're all singing from the same hymnsheet though. The WiFi calling on other devices does not depend on another app, it's a function of the phone app, as below.

Re: Wi-Fi calling for other devices

Would be nice to get this feature, now that we mobile numbers as our main lane. Also useful for those without an Apple Watch but do have an iPad or Mac. Did you get a response from o2 customer services ? I think first o2 need to bring sms over wifi. Step by step. At least they have been busy with eSIM and 5G so maybe this is next
