Galaxy Note 10 Deal: BOGO at Verizon!

    Hey-- my phone is showing a new icon in the status bar that I do not recognize. It is a rectangle with a phone in the bottom left corner and 3 signal bars coming out of it. It looks exactly like the Chromecast icon except there's also a phone, which I've never seen before. Also, I am traveling and nowhere near a device I can cast to.

    Does anyone know what a rectangular icon with a phone and signal bars inside of it means?

    Sounds like the Wi-Fi Calling icon...

    I love it!

    Edit: Sorry, that wasn't really a helpful comment - but I do enjoy your setup. Hope you find a solution soon!

    That icon isn't in the original user guide, so I think it most be something that came with an update. Perhaps related to Calling Plus?

    I noticed you had a video playing in the foreground. Does the icon go away when you close the video? I'm wondering if it's indicating that you can make calls while casting video?

    Maybe something to do with Oreo's picture-in-picture mode?
