Mobile network Three has announced a new feature for its Android and iOS users: Embedded Wi-Fi, which lets you make calls and send texts over Wi-Fi when signal is dodgy.
You'll need a pretty good phone, though - it's currently only supported by a handful of high-end mobiles.
Once installed and enabled, though, it'll let customers stay in touch with their contacts even in a poor signal area. Because the calls and texts use Wi-Fi rather than Three's network, the company says it'll help you save money.
Embedded Wi-Fi is compatible with these phones:
- iOS 10.2 and above - iPhone 5c, 5s, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, SE, 7, 7 Plus
- Android - LG G5, Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
It'll be available on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge from some time in February too.
If you've got a compatible phone with a Three SIM stuck in it, the feature will install automatically. Android owners can use it straight away, while on an iPhone you'll need to go to Settings - Phone - Wi-Fi calling to switch it on.
And if you had the old Three InTouch app, you won't need it any more - you'll be prompted to delete it when Embedded Wi-Fi installs.
On other phones, Wi-Fi calling and texting is still available through separate apps, like WhatsApp and Skype.
