Sprint rolls out CallingPLUS support for LG G6, other improvements too
LG's G6 flagship recently received a small but important update at Sprint. The carrier quietly added CallingPLUS support for the LG G6, which becomes the fourth smartphone to offer this specific feature.
CallingPLUS is a communication solution specifically offered by Sprint, which allows customers to use voice and data simultaneously while on the carrier's LTE network or Wi-Fi. Furthermore, CallingPLUS uses two features – Wi-Fi calling and VoLTE (voice and text on Sprint LTE network).
Aside from LG G6, the following smartphones support Sprint's CallingPLUS feature: Samsung J7 Perx, LG Stylo 3, and Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+.
The update weighs in at 775MB and is pushed OTA (over the air). Besides CallingPlus, Sprint also added support for something called “wholesale VoWiFi,” as well as the latest Android security patches.
Since the roll-out has begun last week, many Sprint customers might have already received the update. If you did, then you now know what's supposed to bring into the mix.
