Gear VR: How to answer calls

Last modified : Aug 28. 2018
Gear VR

Your phone is still capable of receiving phone calls, however, you cannot answer calls while using the Gear VR. To answer a call, separate the device from the Gear VR and answer the call. 

 

The phone icon will appear on the screen if you receive a call while you are using the Gear VR. You can view the caller's information or reject the call. 

 

Please Note: The Gear VR blocks alerts for incoming calls when the Do Not Disturb feature is activated. You can turn on or off the alerts in the Universal menu.

How to answer a call:

1 When a call comes in, move your head towards the notification to view the caller's information
2 Take the Gear VR off
3 Separate the device from the Gear VR
4 Answer the call on the device

Note: When you answer a call, the currently running VR app will be closed.

How to answer a call:

1 When a call comes in, move your head towards the notification to view the caller's information
2 Move your head towards the hang up icon
3 When the border of the icon is highlighted, tap the touch pad to reject it.
Another way to do this is by simply swiping left or right on the touchpad of the Gear VR.
