Calling for app video calling services such as WhatsApp, Skype, Google Duo and Imo will not be allowed from the app
The government is going to ban the use of video calling apps like WhatsApp, Skype, Google Duo and Emo. For this, the Department of Telecommunication has changed the rules of Internet telephony. Under this, video calling will be allowed only for telecom companies. Telecom companies have to launch their video calling app. Also, only the licensee companies will get video calling facility.
Learn what the new rules are:
According to the amendments made in the rules, calls to service the app video call from the app, such as WhatsApp, Skype, Google Duo and Imo, will not be allowed to call. It means that in the future, video calling can be done with Wi-Fi instead of app. If this service starts, then users will have to pay a termination charge for video calling as they pay the fee for voice calling. Tell you that the company whose network calls on the call gets the termination charge from the other company.
Central Government has shown green signal to Internet telephony:
The Department of Telecommunication (DoT) has amended the license terms. In this, a number will be allocated for both cellular mobile service and internet telephony service, which will be allowed to make voice calls through the Wi-Fi service without cellular network.
This service will help the mobile user connect to the nearest public Wi-Fi network. DoT has asked telecom companies to give information to the subscribers in the details related to this service so that they can make a right decision. At the same time, the DoT has allowed all telecom companies to use one another’s data network while connecting to Wi-Fi. Also if the third party purchases the license, then they will also get the permission of this service. At the same time, DoT has asked telecom companies to ensure that the companies are following all the rules related to this service.
