CyanogenMod 13 to support T-Mobile's Wi-Fi calling?

A screenshot of CyanogenMod 13, snapped by a Cyanogen employee, reveals that the Android ROM will come with support for T-Mobile's Wi-Fi calling. Roman Birg, the gentleman who punches his time card every day at Cyanogen, said that the inclusion of T-Mobile's Wi-Fi calling came from using AOSP code (Android Open Source Project) combined with what he calls "clever trickery" by the Cyanogen team.

CyanogenMod 13 is based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and a release date for the ROM is not yet known. We could start to see alpha and beta versions of the latest Cyanogen build surface within months.

T-Mobile's Wi-Fi calling allows T-Mobile subscribers who are stuck in an area with a poor cellular connection, to make and take phone calls over a Wi-Fi network. It also allows for the sending and receiving of texts over a Wi-Fi network as well. Having the feature on CM13 might give T-Mobile subscribers who like to customize their Android phone, the impetus to flash Cyanogen on their handset.
