Asus ZenFone Max Pro M1 Android 10 update won’t bring VoWiFi (WiFi calling), native call recording & video calling
Asus has been promising to push the stable ZenFone Max Pro M1 Android 10 update for quite some time now without luck. The device has had access to the beta firmware since late January 2020.
In a recent development, owners of the ZenFone Max Pro M1 have been told to expect the update to Android 10 in mid-June. Essentially, this means the OS should arrive next week, but until the rollout begins, you better remain skeptical.
When the OS arrives, plenty of new features are expected to grace the occasion. Owners of the device have been making their own feature requests as well via the ZenTalk forums.
Features such as support for VoWiFi function to enable users make voice calls over WiFi, support for native voice call recording, and even native video calling, among others, have been requested by ZenFone Max Pro M1 owners.
Ahead of the much-anticipated rollout of the OS, the company has been clearing the air by responding to the feature requests and from the look of things, some major disappointments are coming with the ZenFone Max Pro M1 Android 10 update.
Apparently, the update to Android 10 will not include support for the VoWiFi function (WiFi calling) on the Max Pro M1. The story is also the same with respect to native call recording and video calling features.
The ZenTalk moderator also mentions that Android 10 will not include support for screen recording, app lock, and slow-motion video recording functions. As far as enabling Camera2 API is concerned, the mod says the matter is still being looked into by relevant teams.
The update to Android 10 is the second and last major OS upgrade for the Max Pro M1. Going forward, the only way to get a taste of a new OS will be via custom ROMs like LineageOS and Pixel Experience, among others.
