AT&T is a renowned telecom giant which offers services like HD Voice, Wi-Fi Calling, and Advanced Messaging to millions of subscribers across the globe. Now, these services may be reaching the unlocked Samsung Galaxy and Google Pixel 4 devices via OTA updates soon.

AT&T has recently released a list of unlocked devices that require an OTA update to enable HD Voice, Wi-Fi Calling, Video Call, and Advanced Messaging services. The list includes devices from the Samsung Galaxy, Google Pixel, Motorola G, and OnePlus 8 series.

Now, Samsung and Google are expected to enable these services for the Galaxy and Pixel 4 devices respectively. While not much information is shared by the OEMs about the OTA updates yet, the list from AT&T clearly indicates that the devices in question will be updated.
