Does the Moto G5S Plus have native video calling support over LTE connection (ViLTE) [Jio to Jio video calls] like the Xiaomi/Samsung phones? The feature was present in the Moto E4 Plus which helped to make direct video calls without using data but was surprisingly not made available in the Moto G5 Plus. Kindly let me know as this will affect my decision to buy this phone.
