When someone calls, we often feel the pressure to instantly answer or decline. We know that sometimes you need a couple extra moments to answer. So, we have added a Hold option to the incoming call screen allowing you to finish what you are doing and get ready for the call.
In addition, we have improved the traditional behavior of Declining a call and sending the caller to voicemail. For your family, friends or anyone in your contacts list we have added an in-call assistant that can tell your callers why you can’t answer. When you’re in a meeting, decline the call and touch the meeting icon. Your contact will hear your situation and that you’ll be reminded to call them back.
Remember those old answering machines where you could listen to a message live and decide if you wanted to answer? We have brought this power to your smart phone. For an unknown caller, you can simply touch the screener icon on your incoming call screen. Your in-call assistant will ask who's calling while you listen and decide how to handle the call. With the screener, answer the calls you want to take and reject those you don’t.
