Samsung has baked a long list of hidden features into its latest version of TouchWiz that aren’t available by default on the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge — such as call recording, Wi-Fi calling, the ability to schedule text messages, and support for VoLTE.

But if you’ve already rooted your handset, you can enable them manually.
