VoLTE technology is not so widespread in either India or the rest of the world. So the question might arise in your mind, what actually is VoLTE?
VoLTE is basically making calls over the internet. While there are many internet voice calling apps in the market today, they mainly use VoIP services, which are slower than data transfer over LTE(Long Term Evolution) services.
Telecom networks traditionally use circuit-switched voice network to make a calls but now VoLTE lets users make calls through internet network with LTE as the data bearer.
JioJoin provides you with a wonderful inteface to make HD VoLTE calls not only to other JioJoin users but also to other mobile/landline users. This feature makes JiJoin application stand out differently from all other applications (like Whatsapp, Line, Skype, Hike, Viber etc).
You can use this application in your 3G or even 2G phones with a connection to the JioFi device. This provides better quality voice calls because it has the ability to use voice and data network at the same time.Another remarkable fact is that 4G is already available in most smartphones in India!! To top it off, Reliance Jio 4G SIM services are available in around 64 handsets worldwide.
With the help of JioJoin, you can make crystal quality voice calls or even video calls to any mobile number or a landline number. You can use any data connectivity (Jiofi and Jio sim data) to use this application provided that you are connected to the Jio network, as this application is for the Jio customers only. You can use this application via two ways: either your device should have a Jio sim in it or you can use JioFi device containing Jio sim in it.

All data that is consumed while making any voice call to some non JioJoin numbers through VoLTE within the Jio network is apparently zero rated and the per minute or per second calling tariff will only apply just like any other regular GSM call and the same applies to all data consumed while sending or receiving SMS to some non JioJoin contacts. However while making any call through VoWiFi on a very third party non Jio WiFi network, subscribers may get charged for data consumed by its broadband provider. All instant text messages and calls to fellow Jio join users will be however free!!
