Asus has started rolling out a new update to Asus 6Z smartphone in India that adds voice calling over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) along with other changes.
The update comes with version number 17.1810.2003.144.02 and it is about 9.5MB in size. The update is rolling out over-the-air (OTA) and can also be downloaded manually from Asus’s Zentalk forum.
