A couple of weeks back T-Mobile announced that it’s launching native video calling with a handful of Samsung devices to start, Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ already have support for the new feature. The carrier said that it will expand native video calling to other devices through a software update and today it has released one such update for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge both.

Native video calling is just one of the many features that the carrier has recently released to set itself apart from the competition. It launched Advanced Messaging recently as well, which brings a richer texting experience that punches above its weight and tries to level with instant messaging applications.

With this feature T-Mobile lets users make video calls the way they would make a phone call from the dialer, assuming that the recipient has a compatible device on T-Mobile, making a video call is as easy as tapping on their name in the dialer app and select video call instead of voice call.

Aside from video calling this update for Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge features Advanced Messaging as well, the new Google Wallet app with Android Pay is included too alongside a Dropbox app. The update has already started rolling out and shouldn’t take too long to go live for all users.
