The feature initially launched in 2012 is now coming back with nationwide availability
Almost two years back, the HD Voice calls from Sprint left us pretty much impressed by the effort but it has been while since this feature has been put out on the back burner of the company. It came with a bang but the hype died down far too quickly and then the feature was only available in certain parts. However, Sprint is now planning to recreate that hype once again by launching the feature once again with a focus on nationwide availability.

The news is certainly official since Sprint CEO Dan Hess has himself announced that Sprint subscribers all over the nation will be able to enjoy the benefits of this feature and for thse clear voice calls they will only have to wait till the first of July. But in order for this to work out, it is important for users to be using HD Voice-compatible devices to talk to people who should also have HD Voice-compatible devices. This would not be counted as catch here since already over two dozen Sprint phones already support the standard, including the iPhone 5s/5c, Samsung Galaxy S 4/Note 3, Nexus 5 and HTC One/One Max.
Now talking about what this feature has in store for the users; Sprint HD voice call feature is going to give crystal clear calls which will cancel out the background noise and deliver more natural sound. And since it was introduced way back in 2012, it already has competion from AT&T and T-Mobile which have come up with their own substitutes. The announcement for the feature was made at the Oracle Industry Connect event where some light was also shed on Sprint's Spark LTE service.
