iPhone 7 Plus does not switch to 3G while making calls. It now stays on 4G. This means VoLTE has been enabled for many users in Mumbai.
For iPhone, there was a Carrier Settings Update and after that, under data options, the option to make calls on 4G appeared. That option needed to be selected to enable VoLTE calling.

Several people having Xiaomi Mi Max 2 and few on S7/S8 are also reporting this to be working.

VoLTE call from Airtel to Jio was instantaneous. That's some good shit right over here.

Ok I am from Mumbai, using an iPhone 6 and my network is staying on 4g when I am on a voice call. So Airtel VOLTE has launched in mumbai :)

Tried calling a Jio number , the call quality was still not HD and very "2g" type. I was expecting that call quality will be like HD from VOLTE to VOLTE network. Disappointed with this.

I am in J&K and I put the sim in iPhone 6S and it's changing from 4g to 3g when calling. i didn't got any carrier update too.

I hope airtel doesn't fcuk up though. as their 4G network is very stable to be honest(even though it's not VOLTE). I do gaming on PS4 , and on mobile (GAMELOFT) and both are rock solid compared to BSNL broadband with low pings and JIO which is pathetic anyways even with high speeds JIO latency and pings to ps4 gaming and mobile gaming is garbage.
