Calling someone via Watch might have seemed impossible in the past but now, it feels like the easiest way to answer calls in case you don’t have your phone handy. However, sometimes the cellular network makes it hard to complete the call seamlessly, as the cellular reception might be weak, inconsistent or spotty. Well, did you know you could improve the call quality by using Wi-Fi Calling? It can actually help you to make phone calls via a Wi-Fi network automatically.
So, if you have a poor cell reception at your house, you can switch to Wi-Fi calling on your iPhone. If you are ok with that, you can enable the same on your Apple Watch to make it more convenient or for times when you are too lazy to walk up to your phone and take a call.
In this post, we will guide you through the steps to help you enable Wi-Fi Calling using Apple Watch.
