Re: Android pie has landed

I got it too on my S8.

 

A bit cartoony TBH.

 

And there was a list of apps which wouldn't be subjected to Samsung's battery optimisation, but seems to have gone.  Where is it?

Mine updated today....

 

Does yours now connect to WiFi calling all the time or not?? If like mine it may, or may not most the time now it is on VOLTE ...

@stuarttunstall yes WiFi calling is now playing up....before update it was constantly connected to my home WiFi now it picks and chooses when it wants to connect👎 which isn't good as EE coverage is not the best at my home address

Re: Android pie has landed

Thanks for confirming... so I am not the onley one 😞

 

I have been told on here that is how it works now, if you have 4G signal which is OK it will use VOLTE if not it will connect to WiFi calling... does not make sense to me and I belive this update has broken a feature...

 

If you change to 2G/3G it works...

 

Out of curiocity if you have yours showing VOLTE and then open the phone app does it change to WiFi calling after about 5-10 seconds? the last couple of times i have looked at mine if I open the app to dial a number it changed to WiFi calling... as if the feature goes to sleep

Re: Android pie has landed

Interesting... .I have now tried the above 4-5 times....

 

I have my phone in a case, so..

 

Open the flip case, phone lights up with VOLTE showing

Open the phone app to dial...

In about 5-10 seconds WiFi calling activates...

If I close the case and look after a couple of minutes it goes back to VOLTE...

Open phone again and after a few seconds it shows WiFi calling

Try the above again and it works..

 

It also seems to have started coming to life if i just unlock the phone, after about 5-10 seconds..

 

What is making the WiFi calling feature turn on and off? it is as though when you are not using the phone to make a call it turns off, as it is not needed... like a "sleep mode"

 

Try your and see if that works... I have tried about 7 or 8 times now and everytime it does it...

 

I have also noticed that the dial green button changes to show WiFi calling..
