Grab your Honor 9 Lite as the Chinese OEM has pushed the VoWiFi or WiFi calling feature for the phone. Notably, the update also brings along March 2020 security update along with the WiFi calling feature for the Honor 9 Lite. The update enables the long-awaited VoWiFi or WiFi calling feature for the phone, which makes use of the strong WiFi connection to connect calls when there is no signal or low mobile network coverage locations.
