We have known for a while now that the Cyanogen team is working on CyanogenMod 13 that’s powered by Android 6.0 Marshmallow, many in the Android community are waiting for those ROMs to arrive as Cyanogen’s third-party ROMs for Android devices are some of the most widely used. It has been confirmed by the team that support for T-Mobile Wi-Fi calling will be baked right into CyanogenMod 13 ROMs for devices that are compatible with Magenta’s Wi-Fi calling feature.

There are multiple devices available on T-Mobile that support the carrier’s Wi-Fi calling feature, however since majority of the third-party ROMs don’t have support for the feature users who rely on Wi-Fi calling are thus unable to seriously customize their Android experience.

Wi-Fi calling can prove to be quite useful particularly in areas where cellular reception is very weak, it enables the device to switch communications over to the Wi-Fi network ensuring that users are never truly without reception as long as they’re connection to Wi-Fi.

The team has confirmed by releasing a screenshot that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow powered CyanogenMod 13 comes with support for T-Mobile Wi-Fi calling built right in. No confirmed release date has been provided yet for these builds but it’s expected that alpha and beta builds of CyanogenMod 13 will be released over next couple of months.
