Indian Realme X2 Pro users will soon be able to use VoWiFi on Reliance Jio and Airtel. The functionality comes via its latest software update which also brings the January security patch. It is rolling out now and will be available to users over the coming week.

Despite its flagship-tier specs and near $400 price, the Realme X2 Pro didn't generate as much as hype as Xiaomi's Poco F1 and Redmi K20 Pro. The device is yet to receive its Android 10 update, although there is an open beta that users can enroll in. Realme X2 Pro users who are on stable Android Pie will be pleased to know that the company is now rolling out a software update for the device.

The software bears build number RMX1931EX_11.A.0 and it is based on the January 2020 Android security patch. It also brings forth an important and highly-anticipated feature; Voice Over WiFi or VoWiFi. India's top two service providers Reliance Jio and Airtel made the feature available on their networks last month. It is available only on a handful of devices at the moment, and we can expect to see OEMs push it to more phones in the coming weeks. VoWiFi is a godsend for users who have spotty network connectivity, as it routes all voice-related data through a connected Wi-Fi network.

The changelog also claims to fix some 'partial known issues' without specifying what they are. Lastly, the software also improves system stability and fixes a bug that disallowed users to upload videos to Instagram. Realme X2 Pro users should receive the update anytime in the coming week. It is a phased rollout, meaning that only a handful of devices will get it at first. Alternatively, you can also manually install the update by downloading it from Realme's official repository.
