WHAT IS WIFI TALK?

WiFi Talk is an app from Optus that lets you make and receive calls and texts using your Optus mobile number over a WiFi connection.

If you do find yourself with limited indoor mobile coverage, WiFi Talk will keep you connected. No mobile signal necessary!

You can use WiFi Talk to call and text when you’re at home, in the office, or out and about in places where you can access WiFi.*

The calls you make and text messages you send using WiFi Talk will be charged to your mobile bill with the same inclusions and rates as your normal mobile rate plan.

WiFi Talk is available to Optus customers through the App Store and Google Play.

* subject to WiFi availability in the building/area, and firewall settings for that WiFi connection.
