    There have been several reports of that. I don't know if certain people were just unlucky, or if there was some specific reason that Google didn't approve some requests.

    In any event, those that didn't get approved and those of us that never applied will just have to wait until the GV app WiFi/data calling is out of beta. That's okay with me, since I use GV+Hangouts over data for all of my voice/SMS/MMS communication on my phones and tablet, and I don't need any complications that could come from using a beta feature.

    IMO, the improvement in call quality is worth it. Day and night compared to hangouts. But still has some frustrating bugs, like notifications for missed calls that never rang.

    I'm not on the Beta, but even with my current GV setup I get notification of missed calls (not overtly; I've disallowed that) in my Calls list in the app, and they never rang. Always spam though. Maybe those likely robo-callers have a way of detecting what they connect to and immediately drop the call when confronted with a whiff of GV.

    I've never had a consistently good calling experience with Hangouts (dropouts and digital audio anomalies), so I'd like to get in on whatever new is coming to us through the GV app that would improve this. Bring it, GV!

    Earlier today I was checking the settings in my secondary GV account and I noticed that the Wi-Fi calling option is now available. I honestly don't remember if I requested beta access for this account, but I know I never received an email from Google saying that my account was enabled. Maybe they are slowly rolling it out to everyone?

    Update: When I go to the beta sign-up page, it doesn't say that I have already responded, so now I'm 100% sure that I didn't request beta access for this account.

    I've noticed in the past two days that the app no longer asks me about the call quality at the end of each call. Maybe the beta program is done and everyone can use it now!

    I don't see Wifi calling in my GV app. Play Store is not offering an update for the app.

    What version of the app are folks seeing Wifi calling without being in the beta group? Mine is 2018.50.224208644.

    I have the same version, and I think that it is not beta, and it does not give me the option for calling via wifi or data.

    There's only one app. There is no special version for wifi/data calling.
    If you have updated in the last 6 months you have the required version.

    Way back at the start of the beta test they said to update to make sure you had the latest version which is when they added support to the app.

    Every update since then has included it.

    Thanks.

    And I guess once google rolls out data/wifi calling for the non beta testers, it should automatically list that option or will it then require me to update again?

    Still asking me about the quality of calls. And my wife's phone does not have the "Make and receive calls" option. We do have the same GV build number.

    No one knows, but I expect they will release an update to announce the new feature and remove the internal checks for the beta users.

    But they could easily enable it on all accounts quietly.

    Yes, that is the same version I have.

    I didn't see a banner or prompt, the setting just appeared in my account. Also, my desktop GV settings doesn't show the Wi-Fi calling settings yet, just the GV app.

    Have you made any calls? How do you like it?

    BTW, when I go to Google voice web site using my browser. The first thing I see is "Make A Call" with a green icon on the left.

    https://voice.google.com/calls
