    I was curious to see how many Pixel owners use WiFi calling. It seems to be a feature a lot of people really want.

    For me I don't really use WiFi calling ever (on any phone). With Verizon so far I have had cell signal everywhere I have visited (yes literally) so I simply just result to cellular for calls and such.

    What say you!?

    Same here don't use Wi-Fi calling partly because I get great signal at both home and work. So never bothered with it or care if my phone has WiFi calling or not.

    I have a rural acreage at lake level with hills on all sides. Since a cellular connection is only line-of-sight, there is no cellular connection with any carrier at my house. The ONLY way to have calling or data is with WiFi. I have a reliable 180 Mbps Comcast connection. That's better speed and reliability than most cellular service in my area. I have excellent calling and data via WiFi at my house.

    We use Google Fi. Google Fi has a flat fee of $15/mo for the first phone and $10/mo for the second phone. Data is $10 per Gigabyte. Since we have fast reliable WiFi at home and wherever we go in the Atlanta area, we seldom use more than 3 to 4 Megabytes of data a month. Our Fi cost for the past year has averaged $46/mo for the two of us, including all taxes and fees. Google Fi always looks first for a reliable WiFi connection before falling back to a cellular tower. Our phone and data reliability and speed is excellent wherever we go.

    If you are a Google Fi user, you of course are almost entirely a WiFi calling and data user. That's what makes it so economical. And the average cost of $23/mo for each of us is certainly economical. Verizon wants $134/mo for the same service.

    Not on my Pixel 3 but I have used it with my GV# from tablets and other phones that didn't have a SIM.

    I have to use wifi calling at home because my house is a complete dead zone. I doubt it engages anywhere else because everywhere else I go, and where I work, are strong signal areas.

    I thought about it but then I figured that I better leave well enough alone.

    I use it. Same as others. Few dead spot in my house so it comes in handy. Outside reception is great. Just indoors it gets crummy so WiFi calling really helps.

    I use it on my 2XL and plan on using it with my 3XL. I get awful reception in my office at work and my phone barely holds on to LTE. If I try to use the cellular network it constantly drops calls. I'd have to turn off advanced calling, too, and I don't want to do that. WiFi calling works great for me, but there's often some sort of "pause" for about 2 seconds after I answer a call where I can't hear the caller and they can't hear me. I assume that's because the call is switching to WiFi. Mildly annoying, but I can deal with it because it works great other than that one small issue.

    Dead spots in the house lead to some wi-fi calls. It is nice never having to worry about connecting.

    I go back and forth. I just make sure it's not a public WiFi.

    Yes, but only when it's needed. Have set the calling mode with cellular preferred. It will flip to WiFi only if it's needed.

    I have not used WiFi calling but have wondered if there's a benefit to using it. I'm figuring there's a battery life hit if the phone is switching back and forth between cell network and WiFi.

    Use wifi calling, live in the country.
    Signal isn't great.
    Lot of trees.
    Also use it for internet on the phone.

    I don't mainly because I don't actually talk on the phone much but My Wife who works at home does many conference calls and she's been using Wifi calling for awhile now and loves it, less dropped calls.
