How to customize calls in One UI 5?

To get started, enter your contacts, then:

  • touch the icon Yo then in the tab at the bottom of the page modifier.

Go ahead More to see more options and scroll to the bottom of the list. First of all, you can customize the ringtone that will sound when the person calls (line Alarm) and do the same with the vibrations by choosing the section appeal vibration.

The real novelty sneaks into the section call background.

  • In the window that appears, press the icon Bottom bottom of page.
  • You can choose still or animated backgrounds offered by Samsung.

These are nice, but not real customization. Go further.

  • touch the icon + at the top right of the window.
  • Here you can choose to embed a photo or video from your gallery or an avatar animation.
  • In the first case, you just choose the photo or video you want from your gallery.
  • In the second case, if you already have an avatar created, simply select it and assign an animation to it. Otherwise, you will have to create the character beforehand.
