BSNL VoLTE support reportedly enabled on OnePlus 7/7T series following January security patch

Technological advancements often move fast and in the recent past, we have seen a general shift from the legacy methods of placing calls in favor of protocols such as Voice over LTE and Voice over Wi-Fi.

These protocols, aptly referred to as VoLTE and VoWiFi, allow users of supported devices on supported carriers to make high-quality voice calls by leveraging the higher bandwidths offered by 4G and Wi-Fi networks.

However, your stars need to get aligned properly before you can take advantage of these services. As mentioned, you must own a supported device. Then, your carrier has to support and offer this service and you also need to be in a supported area.

The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro were officially unveiled back in 2019 and offered the best that OnePlus had at the time. These devices supported VoLTE.

However, there were a few issues that led to the devices not being able to take advantage of VoLTE offered by some carriers such as the Indian state-owned telecommunications company, BSNL.
