As for the Mate 20 Pro and P30 Lite, the VoWiFi updates are arriving as EMUI 10.0.0.208(C675E6R1P5) and 10.0.0.195(C675E9R1P3), respectively. The former weighs in at 1.06GB while the latter clocks at 593MB.

According to HuaweiCentral, the P30 Lite VoWiFi update is also accompanied by support for Huawei Assistant and Smart Charge. Where the former is here to take on the Google Assistant, the latter is meant to improve battery health.

To access Huawei Assistant, simply swipe right on the home screen. As for Smart Charge, you can enable it via Settings > Battery > More battery settings > Smart Charge.

These are OTA updates, meaning VoWiFi may take some time to hit all Mate 20 Pro and P30 Lite handsets in India, so stay patient as you wait for your turn.
