T-Mobile has introduced a new voice calling feature that promises to deliver even greater audio quality. It’s called Enhanced Voice Services (EVS), and it works over both LTE and Wi-Fi to provide customers with their clearest calls yet.

EVS is the first of its kind in the U.S., and possibly the world, and it’s even better than the HD Voice service that some carriers offer, delivering a broader audio frequency range that provides more “realistic-sounding” voice audio.

T-Mobile claims it’s also more reliable, with calls rarely being dropped when EVS is enabled, and it works even when only one caller has EVS functionality on their device.

EVS utilizes both LTE and Wi-Fi connections, and intelligently switches between them to give you the best experience. This means it’s also available in more places; you don’t have to be in an area that’s served by LTE to enjoy it.

The new technology will make its debut on the new LG G5 right out out of the box, and will come to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge with a software update that will roll out this week. T-Mobile aims to bring the feature to 7 other smartphones by the end of 2016.
