Google Pixel 3 series getting June 2020 Security Patch update with Airtel VoWiFi calling in India

4

Google never fails to impress us in providing timely updates to their devices albeit a hectic schedule. The company has recently pushed the latest security patch for the Pixel 3 line up of devices in India. The update which extends to Pixel 3 and 3XL, Pixel 3A, and 3AXL, enables additional features like the VoWiFi support for the Pixel 3A series.

Latest June Security Patch

The latest update from the Internet Giant changes the security patch of the devices to June 2020. Additionally, users on Reddit have reported that the latest update has enabled the VoWiFi features on the Pixel 3a and 3a XL.  Voice over WiFi is a feature that allows a device to use a Wi-Fi network to make calls instead of the mobile network. This presents a high-quality voice calling experience as the current VoLTE calls through mobile signals have frequent interruptions.

Support for Airtel VoWiFi Calling

Further, the Wi-Fi calling feature on the latest update has seemingly enabled the support for Airtel VoWiFi in the country. Users of Airtel can try out the new feature by connecting to a stable WiFi network after which the VoWiFi logo near the tower signal should pop up. If we recall, these devices got the support for Jio WiFi calling a while back.

Users can download the new OTA update in the system updates section inside settings. If you wish to try out the new WiFi calling feature, you can enable it by going into  Settings > Network & Internet > Mobile Network > Advanced > WiFi Calling.

Google has been working hard on the backlog of updates. The company is already behind the schedule of the latest Android 11 Beta. It was supposed to release this week, but the company has postponed it to a later date.

Though, Google did not specify a reason for the postponement, the ongoing protests in the US could be the cause of the delay. Amidst all these Chaos, Google’s effort to constantly update its older flagships is definitely appreciative.

Update: Few users on Reddit have reported that the Pixel 3 devices have got the WiFi calling notification after updating their devices. While few complained of network issues, others have said that the feature worked fine.

  1. The pixel 3 and pixel 3xl not got the Airtel Wi-Fi calling feature after June 2020 update. It’s only 3a and 3a XL.

  2. Only Google pixel 3a and 3a XL got WiFi calling facility after June 2020 security update not 3 and 3XL don’t give wrong information saying 3 series got WiFi calling.

    • Venkat Pixel 3 and 3XL have received the WiFi calling support. However it seems few Reddit users are experiencing network issues while few have said that the service is working fine. If VoWiFi is not enabled after the update, you can try force enabling it in Phone app>settings>calling accounts>your operator> wifi calling and enable it.

      • No Airtel wifi calling is not enabled for pixel 3 and 3XL. Its only available for pixel 3a and 3a XL. Check the Airtel site as well. But JIO wifi calling works fine in 3 and 3XL.
