AT&T was granted permission by the FCC to implement Wi-Fi Calling onto its devices late last year. It was able to get all of its current iPhones connected, but the carrier hasn’t been able to touch an Android device since then.
Today, Ma Bell announced that the LG G4 now has WLAN-enabled SMS and calling features through a software update. Wi-Fi Calling will spread to other Android handsets sooner or later, but for now, the G4 comes first. Call charges will be the same — free to and from US numbers and available in most international countries.
The LG G4 still looks to be on its February update, at least in the Support section of AT&T’s site, so be on the lookout when the new OTA comes by.
