Huawei P30 Pro VoWifi (WiFi calling) support arrives with February security patch

If you own a Huawei P30 Pro then, there is a new security update available for download. Notably, this new security update brings the February 2020 patch, which shows the laziness of the Chinese OEM, as we are already halfway through the April month.

VoWiFi has been a much-demanded feature by the smartphone users of different OEMs. While brands like Realme has made VoWiFi (WiFi calling) available for all of its phones, Huawei has just recently joined this bandwagon.

And while Huawei is late to join this party, Honor already served quite a few of its devices with this feature. To recall, Honor has enabled VoWiFi feature on Honor PlayHonor 20iHonor 9XHonor 8XHonor 10 Lite, while devices like Honor 9N and Honor 9 Lite are yet to get this update along with others as it is still under development.

Besides, the Huawei P30 Pro, which was launched back in 2019, was expecting this feature to arrive on the devices this month. And it seems like the company has made the VoWiFi feature available as planned.
