Spam calls are one of the most annoying things in the world of smartphones for more than one reason. Not only are they bothersome, but they can also be dangerous for people who don't know better. Google has come up with a smart solution known as "Call Screen" to let the Google Assistant handle the call for you while you listen to the caller as a stealth ninja.
You can instruct the Assistant to communicate with the caller without ever answering the phone ̵
1; it is genius. If you ever get a real human scammer on the other side, it's pretty great to waste their time and give them the walk. Not answering unknown callers is still your best bet, but it is a great tool to fall back on in case you are curious.
Now for the real reason why you are here – you want to learn how you can get the exclusive Google Pixel call screen feature on your OnePlus phone. Developer stealth658 from XDA has put together a method to make the Call Screen function work on OnePlus telephones. It's a combination of multiple Magisk modules with a few other steps to make it all work, but once done, it works exactly like a Pixel phone.
Step 1: Download the Call Screening Module
Kick things off, you have to grab the Call Screening Magisk module via the link below. Make sure you tap this link from your phone.
Now open Magisk Manager to the main screen and tap the hamburger menu icon on the left and then go to "Modules". Press the plus button at the bottom, allow the necessary permissions, and then locate the ZIP file of the Call Screening module that you downloaded. Tap the file once and Magisk starts installing the module. When you are finished, tap the back arrow to return to the previous screen.
Step 2: Download the Busybox module
Open the burger menu again as before and then go to "Downloads". Search the search bar for the term "busybox" to find the next module for this manual. Tap the download arrow once and then go to "Install" to start the installation process. When you are finished, tap the back arrow to return to the previous screen.
Step 3: Download the App Systemizer module
In the search bar, enter the & # 39; Downloads & # 39; one more time to the term & # 39; app systemizer & # 39; then repeat the process as before to install the module. Once installed, you can continue and press the & # 39; Restart & # 39; click below to restart your device.
Step 4: Install the Google Phone app
Now that you are back from a new start, it's time to install the last module to make the call screen work. With the framework of this module you can download the Google Phone app directly from the Play Store, just like you are using a Pixel phone. This is the best method to get and update the app without having to jump through hoops or use modified MOTs.
Follow along with the guide above to arrange all of that, then you are one step closer using the Call Screen feature on your OnePlus phone! Don't forget to set the Google Phone app as your default dialer to prevent potential problems in the future.
Step 5: Install the Terminal App
To use the App Systemizer module that you downloaded in step 3, you must first access a terminal. The module is entirely based on the command line, so you also needed the Busybox module – this allows you to use more advanced commands with superuser permissions. I always recommend Termux because it is very well built and comes from a trusted source.
Step 6: systematize the Google Phone app
Now it's time to use the Google Phone app in a system app so that it looks like it's is pre-installed with your device, just like a Pixel phone. Open the Termux app and then type the command below, followed by enter.
When prompted, tap the "Grant" option to give Termux full superuser rights to your system.  Now that your superuser permissions have been granted, type the following command followed by enter.
This command immediately launches the App Systemizer module interface for the first time. This is easily the best way to turn any user-installed app into a system app with minimal effort.
