Three Wi-Fi calling no longer requires a dedicated app in U.K.

British carrier Three now offers Wi-Fi calling without a dedicated app. It means subscribers can finally ditch the company’s inTouch app, but you’ll need a compatible smartphone to take advantage of the feature.

Three has offered Wi-Fi calling for a number of years, but it always required users to download and sign into its inTouch app for Android and iOS. It worked, but it wasn’t quite as seamless as the experience offered by rivals like EE and Vodafone.

Now the inTouch app is no longer necessary. When connected to a Wi-Fi network with a compatible phone, Wi-Fi calling will be available automatically. Here are the handsets that Three currently supports:

  • LG G5
  • Galaxy S6
  • Galaxy S6 edge
  • iPhone 5c
  • iPhone 5s
  • iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus
  • iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus
  • iPhone SE
  • iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus

You’ll notice that the Galaxy S7 series isn’t on that list even though its predecessors are, but Three says support for these devices will be added next month. It also promises to add even more handsets to the list over time.

If you’re a Three subscriber with one of these devices, then, you can now remove the inTouch app from your phone.
