Relience Jio is Testing Jio VoWi-Fi Service
On 5 September 2016, reliance Jio made its way to public market, with cheap rates, high data speed, and its complementary services like Jio tv, Jio music, Jio is one of the biggest telecom service provider in India. Now to expand its wings, JIo has started testing for Jio VoWi-Fi (Voice-Over-Wi-Fi). This lets the user access the internet and makes a voice call without any cellular connectivity. To launch this service, Jio has started testing for this in Andhra Pradesh, Kerala Madya Pradesh and Telangana.
People from TelecomTalk have got a screenshot from Gandarwara, Madya Pradesh. This Screenshot is captured from an iPhone. As we can see in the image the iPhone is showing "Jio Wifi" instead of the cellular network provider.

Most of the recently launched smartphones have built-in support for VoWi-Fi. but maybe companies will need to push some software updates to make this service work.
And also as we can predict from past behaviour of Jio, Jio may launch a new phone with enabling this service.
