AT&T has already released Lollipop for LG’s 2014 flagship smartphone but the initial update didn’t add the carrier’s VoLTE feature, and now it’s making amends. The carrier today released a minor software update for the LG G3 which brings the VoLTE feature. AT&T’s Voice over LTE feature was launched about a year ago and it has gradually been expanded to devices in its lineup ever since.
The G3 was released by LG last year and AT&T is one of the carriers that offers it to its customers in the United States. As previously mentioned, this device has already received its Lollipop update.
Several factors determine whether or not a device can support Voice over LTE. It depends upon the actual hardware inside the device as well as required infrastructure in the particular market.
Once all this aligns the carrier can easily flip the switch on this feature through a software update, like it has done today with Android 5.0.1 version D85021l for the LG G3 model D850.
Since this is a minor update after all there really are no big changes to look forward to this time around. The big ticket item here is VoLTE, which is accompanied by more bloatware, the AT&T Mail and Uber application.
