Nevertheless, as many time occurred, some of you may find yourselves searching for options that you are used to having on your Marshmallow OS. They are most certainly present but maybe are hidden and you have an issue finding them.

One useful option that is a habit of many of Android users is Scroll Up to Answer. Simple, the second option of answering receiving the call by scrolling upwards. The first is, of course, the green button.  Is it a thing of individual preference or maybe the easier way to answer while in a hurry, it’s your call. Often is disabled by default so we will help you to get it back. Meanwhile, your only option is a red/green button.
