The Samsung Galaxy S9 offers several useful or even impractical functions, which often have to be activated first. This also includes the feature that you can call a contact directly or write a message by swipe to the left or right via a contact.
This must be activated for the contacts app on the Samsung Galaxy S9, however, first. This works in the following Android submenu: Opens the settings from the start screen and then:
- Advanced functions --> Delete for call/messages
Activate this option on the Samsung Galaxy S9 by setting the slider to "On".
You can now make a call or send a message if you cross "Phone" or "Contacts" on a contact or phone number in the app to the right or left.
If you prefer to deactivate the function again, move the slider to "Off". Done.
