I read news about Jio collaborating with Google to bring Wifi Calling to all Pixel devices with Snapdragon 821. Now I am already on Android 7.1.2 on my Pixel. There is a Wifi Calling option under Settings -> More -> Wifi Calling. That has been enabled. However, is there a way to know if Jio calls are actually getting routed via Wifi Network? In-call UI does not state that.

Anyone tried it?

PS: This is not same as making wifi calls via Jio4GVoice app over data or wifi network. Do not spam this topic with those questions.

Just like VOLTE you will have icon for VOWIFI...
In my S7 small handset button appears near the WIFI symbol indicating that I am connected to VOWIFI
P.S. I am not in India

VOWIF and VOLTE handover is seamless and smooth

Technically, it should just be able to use any WiFi network but In India they would just limit it to JioNet or Jiofi only due to security reasons that are beyond my grasp.

that would make it quite pointless lol. i guess government regulations are stupid enough to not allow that. i mean i have a great wired connectivity at home but my dad's jio sim is practically useless over the last couple of days. no incoming no outgoing. internet speeds are below 1mbps. i would at least be able to make calls if wi-fi calling is enabled on all networks. (my dad does not have a pixel so it does not really matter to me right now anyways)
