Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge get Wi-Fi calling on AT&T

AT&T issued a small update to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge that’ll make owners pretty darn happy. The patch includes support for Wi-Fi calling, which means you’ll be able to place calls over Wi-Fi networks when coverage is low or unavailable. T-Mobile, to its credit, offers this for all of its customers, but AT&T is adding support to new phones. The iPhone is already supported asĀ is the LG G4.

This is particularly useful for folks who travel and who don’t want to pay high roaming fees for international calls. Just jump on the hotel Wi-Fi and call home. I’m looking forward to taking advantage of that during my upcoming trip to IFA in Berlin late next month.

The update should be available now, but there may be a slight wait since AT&T tends to roll these out in stages. To check, head to Settings > About > Software updates > Check for updates.
