Galaxy S4 call feature available free before Android 4.3 update


When Samsung launched the Galaxy S4 the company provided the device with more gesture controls and other hands free options. These features have been promised for older Samsung handsets such as the Galaxy S3, but now owners of many handsets can get the Galaxy S4 call feature free before the Android 4.3 update.

Samsung promised to provide a number of the new Galaxy S4 features for the likes of the Galaxy S3 and Note 2 in future firmware updates, and while we wait for the company to make its mind up about releasing the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update a free app has appeared that brings a call feature to any Android phone owner.

The Air Call Accept app has been put up on the Google Play Store and is free so users of Android devices can wave their hand in front of the proximity sensor on the handset to accept an incoming call.

This app is available for any Android handset that has a proximity sensor and is running Android 1.6 or higher, and you can also answer the handset by putting the handset up to your ear. There is also a paid for version of the app that adds the option of ignoring a call, sending an email when a call is rejected, and turning on the speakerphone automatically when the device is answered.

Of course for owners of certain Samsung devices it won’t be worth getting the paid version as the feature should eventually become available, but for owners of other handsets it will be a great addition to their handset. Head over to Google Play to download or find out more and check out the demo video below.

Will you install this on your Android smartphone?
