Sprint on Thursday announced a new software update for the Samsung Galaxy S4 w/ Sprint Spark. Once downloaded and installed over-the-air, the update will let users make international calls over Wi-Fi connections. What’s more, this will not cost the customer anything extra to use.

“We are excited to roll out International Wi-Fi Calling as part of our commitment to enhancing the customer experience and expanding the calling reach for our customers… Sprint customers won’t have to think twice about calling home while on vacation or away on business.”

The feature will work in more than 100 countries on both public and private Wi-Fi networks. Note that is is free to message and call the United States, US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Sprint expects to introduce the International Wi-Fi Calling feature to additional devices in time.
