T-Mobile launches Enhanced Voice Services; better than HD Voice
T-Mobile continues to shake the industry with its Uncarrier moves, challenging everything the USA mobile market knew about the business. From rollover data to free streaming and international roaming, T-Mobile’s offers are finally giving other carriers a fight they have to keep up with.
What’s next? Magenta has just announced a new network upgrade they claim is the first of its kind in the USA (and possibly the world). It’s called Enhanced Voice Services (EVS) and offers three improvements.
What does EVS offer?
- More reliability – There will be less dropped calls on LTE.
- Higher quality – Thought HD Voice was good? EVS is even better.
- Works on WiFi – Whether you are connected to WiFi or enjoying LTE connectivity, EVS will be there to back you up.
- Bonus – Do you have EVS and the other caller doesn’t? You will still enjoy these new capabilities.
Ready to test EVS? Not everyone will be able to use it right away, but if you have one of three phones you will be able to notice the difference. Supported devices currently only include the LG G5, Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. T-Mobile is also working on bringing EVS to 7 more smartphones by the end of the year.
If you have a supported device, please hit the comments and let us know if you have noticed any differences. We would love to hear what you have to say.
