    I just got the LG K20, running nougat, and the direct dial widget doesn't dial automatically. When I push it, it takes me to the call screen and I have to push call for it to call out. I've searched everywhere and don't see this question. Is it the phone? Is it nougat? Can I fix it? Thank you!

    Welcome to Android Central! It's definitely not a Nougat thing, because Direct Dial works like it always has on my Nexus 6P. Does this happen for any Direct Dial widget you create, or only for certain contacts?

    I'm having the same issue with my new LG V20 device. After reading a lengthy discussion @ Verizon support site, it looks like a software bug with LG's launcher. My phone has the latest security patch (Arp 2017), hence I have to wait for another software update.

    I have that with my Moto XPE. I assumed it's because I won't put contacts in Google's contacts.

    You can check your Google account dashboard to see what is what. The Nexus is a Google phone, so it probably does link automatically. Does LG have it's own version of some apps?
    I have friends that HATE Google and it wouldn't be fair to backdoor them.

    I still have 6.0. Debating if I even want 7.

    Same here with my MXPE, unless I read some REALLY good reviews about nougat on my phone I'm staying with mm. I'm not a big fan of it but it still sounds way better than nougat.

    Android seems to be a mess anymore
    :-(

    I haven't noticed that problem on my V20 from T-Mobile, plus I loaded Nova launcher right off the bat, much smoother experience

    I am having the same problem and need a fix. All my previous Direct Dial Widgets still work but any new ones don't, they just open the dial screen and I need to then hit dial.

    Has anyone found a solution to this problem? I have to tap on the screen 3x to direct dial. Once on the number once to move the screen up to see the call tab amd then once on the actually phone tab.
