    Answered By Gunwant Sen | 9 months ago

    Video calling was never this easier. VoLte is all IP Based and allows you to make video calls from native dialing applications. 

    Your phone must support 4G VoLte to use the feature. If your phone is not Volte enabled, you can use widely used: Jio4GVoice" application to get your work done.
