The Motorola Droid Turbo 2 has an update currently rolling out and other than coming in with the latest Android security patch for the month of February, the update also brings support for Wi-Fi Calling to the 2015 flagship.
Wi-Fi Calling has been growing in stature, but so far, not all carriers and devices have the support for this feature available for their customers. The good side of the story is that the feature has been rolling out gradually and now it has finally come to the Moto Droid Turbo 2 thanks to this small update.
If you are still rocking the 2015 Motorola flagship, you should be able to receive a new software version 24.31.22, but since it is coming out over the air, it will take time before eventually hitting all Moto Droid Turbo 2 handsets in the country. Once the update is installed, the latest security patch will be installed. Users of the phone will also be able to start making voice calls over Wi-Fi, something that will be a lot helpful when you don’t have a stable cellular connection on your Droid Turbo 2. It gets even more interesting as this feature still works when outside the U.S., where one can make Wi-Fi calls to the country’s numbers without any issues.
The fact that Wi-Fi Calling has been updated on the Moto Droid Turbo 2 doesn’t mean that your usual phone number won’t work. You will still be able to make and receive calls using this number. To enable Wi-Fi Calling, head to Settings>Advanced Calling>Activate Advanced Calling and that’s it.
As noted earlier, the Moto Droid Turbo 2 is a 2015 flagship and like others from the same year, an update to Android 7.0 Nougat is expected at some point later in the year. However, this latest update has nothing to do with Nougat as it is still based on the older Android Marshmallow. In short, the wait is still on!
