    What is the difference between VoWiFi and VoIP?

    VoWiFi (Voice over Wi-Fi) is a telephony service provided by your network operator. It means that your network operator provides a voice call service using Wi-Fi.

    Note! To use VoWiFi or Wi-Fi Calling, your device needs operator-customised software and your subscription (incl. SIM card) must support Wi-Fi Calling for the device model you're using. To inquire if your subscription and SIM card support VoWiFi/Wi-Fi Calling, contact your mobile network operator.

    To make a VoWiFi call you need the recipient’s phone number.

    The following Xperia devices support VoWiFi:

    • Xperia 5
    • Xperia 1
    • Xperia 10
    • Xperia 10 Plus
    • Xperia L1
    • Xperia L2
    • Xperia L3
    • Xperia X/X Dual SIM
    • Xperia X Compact
    • Xperia X Performance/X Performance Dual SIM
    • Xperia XA1
    • Xperia XA1 Ultra
    • Xperia XA1 Plus
    • Xperia XA2
    • Xperia XA2 Ultra
    • Xperia XA2 Plus
    • Xperia XZ Premium/XZ Premium Dual SIM
    • Xperia XZ/XZ Dual SIM
    • Xperia XZs/XZs Dual SIM
    • Xperia XZ1

    • Xperia XZ2 Premium
    • Xperia XZ3
    • Xperia Z5/Z5 Dual
    • Xperia Z5 Compact

    Note! Your network operator decides if VoWiFi/Wi-Fi Calling is enabled or not in your device.

    VoIP (Voice call over IP) is a SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) call technology using IP packet data service, for example Skype. To make a VoIP call, a SIM card is not required but you need an IP connection using Wi-Fi or mobile data to access internet. VoIP calls are not operator dependent.
