As this is a user to user forum, there is no one here that can answer that, and Motorola doesn't comment on future plans.

 

But Wifi calling is not that easy to just say yes or no. In the USA most carriers don't offer it except on carrier branded phones.  So I can't do Wifi Calling on Tmo with Nexus or Moto. A Droid Z will do wifi calling on Verizon, but a regular Z will not. 

 

In Europe, it varies by country and carrier - at least on the iPhone. So T-mobile may offer Wifi calling on iPhone in one EU contry, but not in another. I don't know why.

It seems like Moto's new phones are offering Wi-Fi calling now on T-Mobile. this includes the G5 plus and I think even the new Moto E4. I am not holding my breath, but maybe Motorola will include this in an update to the Z Play.

Wi-Fi calling is availble on Unlocked Nexus 6 [motorola] 

Google Pixel [XL] [unlocked], 6P

I think all the unlocked Nexus line from Nexus 5 up

So it can be done .... might be a fee involved to carriers, not sure.

That would be the only thing I can think of to prevent it from being included in an update.
