If you own a Verizon-branded Droid Ultra, Maxx or Mini and have previously registered as a member of the Motorola Feedback Network, you should now be receiving an invitation for a brand new soak test.
If you chose to accept, you will be prompted to download and install a relatively major functionality update, which brings “Advanced Calling 1.0″, also known as VoLTE for Verizon’s network, as well as to the usual multitude of bug fixes and stability improvements.
Thanks to a loyal reader, we happen to have a copy of the email Motorola is sending out to all its Feedback Network testers, which you can see below:
Thanks for joining the Motorola Feedback Network. This invitation is not going to everyone. We are reaching out to you because we have an exclusive testing opportunity for select DROID MAXX/ULTRA/MINI owners. This opportunity is first come first serve.

This link is uniquely tied to this survey and your email address (XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX). Please do not forward this message and please do not share this or any communication about this invitation online or with others.
Thanks for your participation!
If you’re not a tester and you want to take advantage of the VoLTE service, don’t worry. Once a soak test is successful, the firmware is distributed to all other models of the smartphone within a couple of weeks.
If you’ve had an opportunity to try out the VoLTE service we’d love to know your thoughts, so be sure to drop us a line in the comments section below.
