    LG X Power Software Update 9/13/2016?

    Did anyone else get a major update to their X Power yesterday?

    Kind of happened when I was unaware, so don't really know what it was for.

    ps: OS still on MM 6.0.1 after update.

    What constitutes a major update?

    Well, took about 30 minutes(+) to install.

    Over 60 updates(steps, processes, whatever).

    "Guessing" it was the volte/wifi calling update that the Escape got a few weeks ago.

    OMG, if the X Power gets it I'm going to scream.
    We had an X Power and I kept nudging Cricket about VOLTE and they said the phone was likely going to be replaced with a new model that does that and wifi calling. Then the X Charge came out, and I cussed at myself and coughed up the $100+ upgrade.

    Doesn't matter at this point as her old X Power screen shattered already, but hey, the more phones with this feature the better. The LG Harmony is somewhat an upgrade to the Escape 3, yet the Escape 3 still got software features updated for Wifi calling and volte. Anyone chime in? I'll plug in my X Power, shattered screen and all, and see what this update is all about.
    Been gone a long time. Hello, HoFo- I'm BACK.

    Looks like you guys got VOLTE! That's definitely a good start, HD Voice and calling over LTE will be an improvement. Doesn't look like wifi calling is being rolled to any new devices anytime soon though. They said it was coming for the Alcatel Pulsemix like a month ago but hasn't shown up yet. I think everything is getting VOLTE for now.
    Also, when the Escape 3 got updated to support Wifi calling, did it also get Nougat? I know the AT&T version (phoenix 2) got it. Wonder if Android 7+ is a requirement for the WiFi calling bits of the software, which might explain why older devices are only getting updated to VOLTE and not VoWifi too. Just a guess.
