Help my gran!

Post by Conrad » 18 May 2020 06:56

Hello guys,

Recently bought a galaxy tab for my gran (86) as she is isolating on her own and has no contact. The idea was that family can call her using WhatsApp video call and she gets some contact. Problem is she really struggles with the touch screen when she has to answer the call.

I’ve spent hours trying to conjure a way to use volume button to answer or auto answer the video call but no joy.

Ideally I would like it to auto answer ANY whatsapp video call After a few seconds so she doesn’t need to touch the screen.

I think automatic can do this as it’s a notification of the call but I can’t make it work if anyone can help?
Cheers!!

If there is a button to click to answer the call, you can use Control UI to click it.

Create an action control UI and then click open Control UI info then receive a whatsapp call to see the button then click info (top left) you will now see some rectangle with green border then click the rectangle around the answer button.

There you can see some option that you can do with the button, choose the line have the word <click(...)> (... is the name of the button) or you can choose the clickByIdAndIndex() if you want, what was clicked will be copy to the clipboard. Then stop calling and click button close on top right and come back to Control UI info then paste to the typing section. You will see 2 line.
  • first one is sleep(1000) for example is the time in millisecond Automagic wait before the next Action(next line if you have)
and
  • second one is click("name of the button here") if you choose click before
Now you can try to built your own flow and test what will happen Either success or fail, you can come here and comment so I can see if I can help you more.
