As part of a software update now rolling out to users, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge are now being granted the ability to make and receive calls over Wi-Fi on AT&T’s network. This follows the footsteps of other devices recently to receive Wi-Fi calling like the LG G4.
AT&T via their forums released a summary about this new update which includes a few other changes other than the addition of Wi-Fi calling to the Galaxy S7/Edge.
- Effective 7/27/2016, AT&T released a software update for the Samsung Galaxy S7 (SM-G930A).
- This update will be made available to customers to download via firmware over the air (FOTA).
- A Wi-Fi connection is required.
Device Update Enhancements:
- Setup and Transfer
- Wi-Fi Calling
- AMBS Phase 3
To download and install the update to your Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, head over to Settings > About phone > Software update > Check for updates and check to see if the package is available for you. If it is, be sure to jump on a Wi-Fi network after putting your phone on airplane mode so no unexpected data charges happen. You also should be sure to either plug in your device or simply have at least 80% battery so your phone doesn’t die during the installation or download process.
