Croatian Telecom First in Croatia to Offer WiFi Phonecalls

Lauren Simmonds

A step forward for communications as Croatian Telecom (Hrvatski Telekom) offers something new to customers.

The VoWiFi service incorporates technology that allows the user to communicate vocally over any WiFi access point the user is logged into.

The brand new service from Croatian Telecom, Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi) is an upgrade to last year’s VoLTE service. This convenient technology allows the user(s) to communicate vocally over any WiFi access point that the user is logged into without having to go through the process of entering an additional username and/or password.

In order to use the Voice over WiFi service, the installation of additional applications is not needed, nor is registration, meaning that it is sufficient to sign up to the available WiFi network, the only requirement for the service is that the user has an active VoLTE service.

Phonecalls will now also be made possible through the use of available WiFi networks in cases of mobile network inaccessibility, such as in garages, in cellars, or in the most frequent offender – shopping centres.

In all of these situations, the user will be able to communicate orally using the WiFi network available to them at the time and this new technological concept is valid for calls made within the Republic of Croatia, and during a promotional period until July the 16th, 2019, abroad too.

Activating and using voice services over WiFi is free of charge, and the prerequisite for using it is merely possessing a device that supports the service and the required corresponding version of the software. The first devices offered by Croatian Telecom with VoWiFi support are the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus models, with other manufacturers set to make theirs available very soon.
