    I had this problem but realized my app notifications for "Google Dialer" was blocked. Go to Setup->Sound and Notifications->App Notifications. Scroll down to Google Dialer and make sure it isn't blocked. Worked for me when I removed the Block

    Go to Settings>Sounds & notification>App Notification then unblock the Dialler App then everything will be normal again.

    I faced the same problem in my nexus 4 and it's working fine with the fix.
    Hope it helps!!

    Thanks (from the future). i have a nexus 5 and did exactly the same thing and your solution worked. The notification box is a little different but is easy to figure out what you meant and voila I can answer my phone again.

    I don't believe this. Just received an awaited important phone call regarding a lawsuit and the first time this has ever happened, I could see the number calling on the top portion of the screen, but the bottom half, where you swipe, was totally black. I couldn't see the green button to answer the call. I tried to press and swipe on the left side where is usually shows up and nothing. UNBELIEVABLE!!
    Hi! The solution is super simple. Go to settings->apps->dialer/phone and unchecked the box that says block notifications / check the box that says enable notifications!

    Hi guys, I have LG Nexus 5X and with 7.1.1 experienced the same. The fix should be rather simple. Go to Settings > Notifications and see the 3 vertical dots top right corner. Click on them and select "Reset app preferences". Seems the update broke something and need the default notifications settings to be able to fix this. Hope it helps someone! Morgan

    Well, I too had this problem and the thing was that my default phone app was not the one that comes pre-installed in stock Android and once I made it the default one, I got my problem solved...
    To change your phone app just go to Settings>apps>Phone>Phone app and select the Phone
    Go to Setting>app and then click on the settings icon in the top right and select the primary phone app as default!
