Is wifi calling working?

is your mobile data turned off? usually even if on wifi or using wifi calling the phone must still authenticate it via mobile data in order to send (usually happens quickly behind the scenes and not noticed)

Even if you do not use it, download messages from google play.


when It’s installed, keep wifi off. enable chat features, make sure it sets itself up and goes active. this will enable w.e the phone needs for default uses, lte or wifi.


once it’s good, either continue to use messages and disable built in one or get rid of it and use it as you always have.
