Move Over VoLTE, It’s Vo5G Time: How It Works and When India’s Getting It

VoLTE, or Voice over Long-Term Evolution, revolutionized voice calling in India, providing crystal-clear audio and eliminating the need to constantly repeat yourself during conversations. Now, with the advent of 5G, tech enthusiasts are eagerly awaiting the next leap in calling technology: Vo5G, or Voice over 5G.

What is Vo5G?

Vo5G is the standard for making voice calls over 5G networks, rather than the current standard of using 4G. This means that Vo5G takes all the benefits of 5G โ€“ speed, capacity, and responsiveness โ€“ and applies them to voice calling.

Advantages of Vo5G

Vo5G offers several advantages over VoLTE, including:

  • Superior call quality: Vo5G utilizes more advanced audio codecs that provide better clarity and fidelity.
  • Faster call connection times: Vo5G’s reduced network latency results in quicker call setups.
  • Enhanced reliability and continuity: Vo5G experiences lower packet loss, leading to fewer voice cutouts.
  • Elimination of drop issues: With Vo5G, there’s no need to switch between 5G and 4G, preventing call drops.

When will Vo5G be available in India?

Vo5G is not yet commercially available in India, but it’s on the horizon. Reliance Jio, India’s largest mobile carrier, has been testing VoNR behind the scenes and is expected to be among the first to roll out the service. Airtel and Vi will likely follow suit shortly after.

How to use Vo5G

Using Vo5G is easy and requires minimal effort. To make Vo5G calls, you need three things:

  • A phone that supports Vo5G
  • A carrier that offers Vo5G
  • A 5G signal in your area

If your phone supports Vo5G, it’s likely turned on by default. You can double-check in your settings. Next, ensure your carrier offers Vo5G and that you have a compatible plan. Finally, verify that you’re in an area with 5G coverage. If all conditions are met, your phone will automatically use Vo5G for voice calls, providing a clear and smooth calling experience.


Vo5G represents the next generation of voice calling, offering superior quality, faster connections, and enhanced reliability. While it’s not yet widely available in India, it’s poised to revolutionize voice communication once it becomes commercially available.
