Verizon Wireless confirmed yesterday that HD Voice and Video Calling is just “weeks away” for the carrier’s 4G LTE network.
Soon, Verizon customers with mobile devices capable of these features will gain access to them.
Simply dubbed VoLTE (Voice Over LTE), this service in question allows for what the nation’s largest carrier calls “better quality, high definition sound” in voice calls when connected through the 4G LTE network.
“HD Voice and Video Calling work only when both people are in the Verizon 4G LTE coverage area and are using VoLTE-enabled smartphones from Verizon,” the carrier says. “The calling experience customers know today remains the same if one Verizon customer uses a VoLTE-enabled phone and the other doesn’t, or if a customer with a Verizon smartphone calls a customer of another carrier or a landline phone.”
As of this writing, it isn’t known if Apple’s eagerly anticipated iPhone 6 will support VoLTE.
