AT&T VoLTE video calling, RCS messaging support limited to just a pair of Samsung devices

AT&T Mobility over the weekend pushed a slew of LTE-based advanced services to select customers, including messaging, enhanced rich communication services and voice-over-LTE video calling.

The VoLTE video launch builds on AT&T Mobility’s past VoLTE service launch, which began in mid-2014. The video service is said to allow customers with compatible devices – currently just the Samsung Galaxy S6 Active, with more said to be on the way – and in AT&T Mobility’s LTE coverage to conduct video calls. Customers can initiate the call as a video call or switch between regular voice calls and the video session.

Video calls use both voice and data, which are billed separately under a customer’s current rate plan. The service is presently only available to postpaid subscribers.
