After upgrade to Oreo, isn't working
Any suggestion?

I have a simple macro:
Event:
--incoming call from any number

Action:
-auto answer after 2 second

Constraints:
-connected to bt of my vehicle
-not in call


Thanks

Have you checked to see what happens if you delete the constraints?

If it still doesn't work, add a notification or other action so you can check if it is the trigger or the auto-answer that is the problem.

Test the constraints individually like this:

What happens when you do the following test while your phone is ringing - ie incoming call but not yet answered?

Ok the problem is if I add the constraint 'call status' ...


So I don't want the auto answer if I'm already in a call.

Any suggestion?

Thanks again

Not sure about this as right now I don't have a cellular connection so can't test, and in any case my phone doesn't ring when I'm already in a call...

...but this might be worth a try. The 'Not in Call' constraint is because I don't know how ending one of two concurrent calls is handled.
