Currently the only devices capable of WiFi calling on AT&T’s network are iPhones. Most newer iPhones are able to take advantage of the feature, bypassing AT&T’s network to make phone calls. It’s a useful feature if you’re trying to conserve minutes on a plan or are somewhere that the carrier just doesn’t have great coverage, but it’s been incredibly limited up to this point.

Fortunately for LG G4 users, we’ve got another device that’s officially on board with AT&T’s WiFi calling tech.

One of Project Fi’s promises for users is to make sure they always have the best connection available. This is achieved by having Project Fi devices constantly assess the current connection and adjust in real time for an alternate if available, even if this means switching between Wi-Fi and cellular networks. In a move to make high quality connections more readily available, Google announced today that they are partnering with U.S. Cellular for that carrier to become the third partner cellular network for Project Fi.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active is an exclusive device for AT&T customers. Only those who belong to AT&T can purchase the ultra-durable phone that doesn’t give up the high-end specifications we’re used to with the Galaxy S7. Samsung kept the high resolution display, snappy processor, and a versatile camera. The real difference between the Galaxy S7 Active and the Galaxy S7 is design as the former is ready for drops and spills of all types, and Samsung raised the battery capacity up to 4000mAh.

Hit the break for the spec sheet.
