In the past few months, we have seen more and more OEMs pushing out updates to enable this feature on their phones. Most of these devices are from Chinese OEMs like Xiaomi.

Realme has also rolled out updates to a good number of its devices to enable VoWiFi. Realme 3, 3i, Realme 2 and C1, Realme 2 Pro, Realme 5 Pro, Realme 3 Pro and XT, Realme 1, U1, 5, 5s and 5i and many others in Realme’s portfolio already support this.

Today, the company is adding one more device to the list of supported devices, the Realme C2.
