Most of us spend time in at least a few places where our phones just don’t work, whether it’s a room or two at home, a favorite basement coffee shop or some other signal-blocked location. That’s where Wi-Fi calling can save the day. Instead of relying on the cellular phone network, Wi-Fi calling and texting uses an available Wi-Fi network to place your call over the Internet.

Clearly, if you don’t have a cellular signal or it’s spotty, the ability to make Wi-Fi calls comes in handy. All major cell phone carriers now support Wi-Fi calling, with support for the most recent iPhones and Android phones. And, the feature will inevitably become more widespread. Wi-Fi calling exists because it's a great way for the carriers to offload their network traffic and increase coverage without having to pay for it.

Since major carriers already support it, can we get enough votes and comments to get the developers to add this function to MIUI so our phones can support it too?

According to a simple Google search (you can check by yourself), Digi and U Mobile have enabled VoLTE and VoWiFi (WiFi calling) in Malaysia...

I have no idea about wifi calling. It means we can make international call without getting charged by carrier?

Not really. It depends on you carrier actually... In my country, they don't charge extra for it, but any calls made via WiFi are charged as normal calls. the main benefit is that you have better coverage since there some places where you have WiFi and a bad carrier service signal. Also, it helps to reduce congestion in the carrier's network overall, so in the end, all the customers are benefited by the use of this service
