How to Customize Quick Responses

Most Android devices feature four quick responses by default. If you want, you can customize it, and here’s how:

Open the Phone app.

Tap the three vertical dots at the top.

Click on Settings that you can find between Call history and Help and feedback.

Tap Quick responses which you can find between Sounds and vibration and Calling accounts.

Now tap the one you want to customize. In the pop-up, you can enter the text you want and then tap OK.

That’s it. You can look at the changes now.

Repeat the above steps for any quick responses you want to customize.

Let me explain how to use this.

You can refuse a call by swiping the phone icon down, and you need to swipe up to accept the call.

If you want to use a quick response, you need to tap the Reply button.

You will now see the four quick responses and the option to write your message.

You can choose one of the quick responses you prefer, or the option to write the message (in the pop-up, you need to enter your message and then press the Send option).

The call is rejected and the person who called you will receive the quick response you have chosen or the text you have typed in as an SMS.

How to turn call waiting on or off

Open the Phone app.

Tap the three vertical dots at the top > Settings.

You can now view Calling accounts that you can find between Quick responses and Blocked numbers. Hit it.

Click on the desired SIM card.

Tap Additional settings.

Tap Call waiting. Remember that green means enabled.
