Cricket Wireless has just released a new feature that promises to improve the quality of voice calls. As announced, HD Voice makes use of Voice over LTE (VoLTE) technology so that users will be able to enjoy good voice quality when they are on a call. At the same time, they can still browse the internet over LTE connection.
As of this writing, HD Voice is not yet completely rolled out to all devices. On Cricket Wireless, the first four devices that are equipped with HD Voice feature include the following:
- Alcatel Idol 4
- LG Escape 3
- Samsung Galaxy Sol 2
- ZTE Grand X 4
In order to start using HD Voice, the device must be updated to the latest software version. Both parties involved in the call should also be using a device with HD Voice enabled. This means you won't be able to call someone who does not have HD Voice feature activated in his phone.
Apart from the four devices, there's still no word on when Cricket will make the feature available on other smartphone models. But if it goes well, it should start adding more devices to its list pretty soon.
