Re: Wifi calling not working with Android Pie (Pixel XL)

Yes, the phone would prefer a 4G connection over WiFi calling, @stuarttunstall.

 

So if your phone can't connect to a solid 4G connection, and you're connected to WiFi, it'll connect to WiFi calling.

 

It is set like this to improve the quality of calls.

Re: Wifi calling not working with Android Pie (Pixel XL)

Thank you @Christopher_G

 

Is this a change made with the new Android Pie?

 

I suspect it must be as Oreo worked on WiFi calling all the time, and it seems searching a lot of other phones and network are seeing the same, but not all...

Yes, I believe Samsung implemented this on Android Pie, @staurttunstall.

 

Other manufacturers implemented it on previous updates.

Re: Wifi calling not working with Android Pie (Pixel XL)

So I get that Android Pie is set to prefer mobile over WiFi, but does this mean VoLTE preferred to VoWiFi only? Or would a 2G/3G connection also count?

 

I suspect that VoWiFi would be preferred over 2G/3G, but it would be good to have this confirmed..

 

It's admittedly quite rare, but quite possible to find locations where 4G doesn't work, 2G/3G does and there's a WiFi network available. Normally I prefer to use mobile over public WiFi in almost any situation, but if the WiFi network is secured etc...

Hi @bristolian,

 

I believe the preference is now 4G Calling > WiFi Calling > 3G/2G

 

Thanks
