Cricket Wireless made a few announcements on its newsroom page. The first announcement made was the new feature that will help users use less of their data bucket. The company also shared an update on its plans to make Voice over LTE (VoLTE) technology and Wi-Fi calling available to their users.
Stream More FeatureThanks to the new Stream More feature, users will be able to enjoy their data to a higher extent. According to its announcement, Cricket Wireless users on one of their data plans starting at $30 a month have access to viewing more video content without worrying about running of data. This new feature also allows users to watch HD videos at standard definition quality, much like the quality on DVDs.
Cricket says that the feature will start rolling out for devices in the next few months. If you are looking forward to this feature, the network will send you an alert that it's already switched on.
The Stream More feature may be switched on and off at any time since there's no charge for the service. If you wish to switch on the service, you just need to access your MyCricket app or MyAccount settings and make the necessary changes there. The feature works on any device capable of streaming video in the U.S. However, you may still use the feature while roaming internationally in Canada and Mexico.
VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling
Apart from announcing the new Stream More feature, Cricket shares that they will soon add Voice over LTE (VoLTE) technology. Through this new technology, users will be able to make HD voice calls without worrying about losing connection when you talk and surf the Web at the same time.
In addition to VoLTE, Cricket has plans to make Wi-Fi calling a possibility for this year. This means that if you're in an area with spotty wireless signal, you can still make a call over Wi-Fi network.
