Telstra has extended its native Wi-Fi calling service to 13 more devices, including iPhone 6 and 7 and the new Samsung Galaxy S8.

First introduced in late 2016, Wi-Fi calling works by transferring calls between Telstra's 4G network and Wi-Fi (even while the call is in progress). Basically it means you can make and receive mobile calls in Australia wherever there is an accessible Wi-Fi connection.

From today, if you have an Apple iPhone 6 or later you'll be access Wi-Fi calling by updating to the latest iOS software, then turning on the feature by going into your phone's settings. It should already be enabled on the Samsung handsets listed below.

Here's the full list of enabled devices:

  • Apple iPhone 6
  • Apple iPhone 6 Plus
  • Apple iPhone 6S
  • Apple iPhone 6S Plus
  • Apple iPhone SE
  • Apple iPhone 7
  • Apple iPhone 7 Plus
  • Samsung Galaxy S6
  • Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
  • Samsung Galaxy S7
  • Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
  • Samsung Galaxy S8
  • Samsung Galaxy S8+

Telstra says it will expand the service to more devices throughout 2017.
