[Discussion] Some Google Dialer Tips to Make Life Easier

2021-01-27 17:26:08

Hello Xiaomi users,
Assalamu-alayakum, I hope you are healed by Almighty Allah.  I'm fine too.  Now take a warm welcome from the device team of MI Community Bangladesh.

You all know that due to the new policy of Google, the use of Google Dialer like Android Message is gradually being made compulsory on all phones.  Many of us are not accustomed to using the Google dialer app, which is why we do not like the Google dialer app.  But it does have some great features that will make you more interested in using Google dialer.  Now I am going to show you the benefits of Google Dialer application which will attract you to use Google / Android Dialer application.  Let's get started ............

We use the phone app daily to call people. However, we rarely dive deep into the features offered by the app. So here we are to help you.

In this thread, you will find the top tips, tricks, and hidden features of the Google Phone app that will prove beneficial to you.

1. COPY NUMBER
  • We all know that holding the text in any app will copy it. The text can be a number, email id, or something else. The same thing holds true in the Google Phone app. That is, wherever you see a number, simply long-press it, and you can copy it. It also works when the keypad is open.
  • Also, you can copy numbers right from the Recents screen where you see the contact names. So, you don’t have to open the contact first to copy the number. Perform a long-press on the contact and select Copy number.


2. EDIT NUMBER BEFORE DIALING
  • Tapping on the number would directly call it. If you want to edit the number before dialing it, long-press it anywhere in the Phone app and select Edit number before the call. You will be taken to the keypad to modify the number.


3. FIND CONTACT NAME FROM KEYPAD
Apart from using the search bar to find the contact names and numbers, you can find the contact names from the keypad too. The feature has to be used similarly as we used to type on the feature phones.
  • Open the keypad and type the initials of the contact name. For instance, if you are looking for George, you need to type numbers 4367 where number 4 represents G, 3 is E, 6 is O, and so on. You will see the related results above the keypad. Tap on the contact name to call it.


4. VIEW CALL HISTORY OF A CONTACT
The Google Phone app groups call history from a contact. To view it, tap on the contact name on the Recents screen. Then hit the History button.


5. DELETE ENTIRE CALL HISTORY OF A CONTACT
There are two ways to do that.
  • First, long-press over the contact on the Recents screen and select Delete. That will remove all the call history logs of that particular contact.
  • Alternatively, tap on the contact and hit History.
  • Then tap on the three-dot icon at the top and select Delete history from the menu.


6. DELETE ONE RECORD FROM CALL HISTORY OF CONTACT
For that, go the call history records of the contact, as shown above. Then on the call history screen, swipe right or left to remove the record.


7. ADD CONTACTS TO FAVORITES
The Phone app doesn’t support adding people to speed dial. You need to add them to favorites to call them quickly. There are two ways to add people to favorites. Visit the Favorites tab in the Phone app and tap on the add button.


8. REMOVE PEOPLE FROM FAVORITES
For that, long-press the contact in Favorites. Then, tap on Remove.


9. MESSAGE QUICKLY
Instead of opening the messaging app first, you can directly message someone from the Phone app. For that, tap on the contact name on the Recents screen or in Frequents and then hit the Message button.


10. ENABLE DARK MODE
If you are a fan of dark mode, this app supports it too. To enable it, go to the app settings from the three-dot icon. Then, tap on Display options. Enable Dark theme.

One day Google will push other Android based smartphone companies to put Google Dialer as default dialer (My perspective) as they are doing it with Xiaomi. So it's really better to learn this cool tips from right now. Hat tip for your effort bhai.
