Enhanced Calling is a suite of advanced cellular services enabled by Voice over LTE (VoLTE) technology.

Enhanced Calling Services include the following features:
Simultaneous voice and Data
6-way conference calls
Automatic Robocall alerts to potential spam or potential fraud calls *Device Dependent

BENEFITS OF ENHANCED CALLING
You can make an HD Voice call the same way you make a regular voice call (e.g. from your Contacts app, Phone app or Recent Calls), provided that both you and the person you're calling:
Are using Enhanced Calling-capable phones.
Have the Enhanced Calling feature enabled.
Are connected to the Enhanced Calling Network.
On most Android devices, you'll know that you're on an HD Voice call if an "HD" logo appears in the upper right corner of your in-call screen. If a wired headset or a Bluetooth® headset is connected to your phone, HD Voice calls may not be delivered to the headset with HD quality unless the headset is also compatible with HD Voice.
You can set up a conference call with up to 5 other people, even if they don't have Enhanced Calling-capable phones. A 6-way conference call can be set up exactly the same way you would set up a 3-way call.
You can set up a 6-way conference call the same way you would set up a 3-way call. The only difference is that if your Enhanced Calling-enabled phone is connected to the Enhanced Calling Network, you can set up a conference call with up to 5 people, even if they don't have Enhanced Calling enabled on their phones.
To set up a conference call with up to 6 phones:
Call the first phone number as usual.
While on that call, tap Add call to call the second phone number.
When the second call is established, the first call will be put on hold automatically. You can swap between the two calls.
Tap Merge to join the two calls and form a 3-way conference call.
You can call up to 3 more phones to form a 6-way conference call.
You've successfully set up a 6-way conference call.
HD Voice calls are billed as standard voice calls according to your plan. So, they are billed against your monthly minute allowance according to your plan. HD Voice is included in all existing plans and are charged just like traditional phone calls. There are no additional charges or any data charges applied.
