    I recently got an S7 Edge. I have LG Tone Ultra HBS-810. When I used it with my LG G3 it would just require a push of a button to read out incoming call information. I can't for the life of me find a way to do that with this phone though. I have installed the LG Tone and Talk app, but even toggling on the phone setting under the apps I can select to have read out, nothing happens. On top of that, the app automatically unchecks "phone" as soon as I exit the app. Any ideas on how I can get my headset to read out caller information again?

    Welcome to Android Central! Can you clarify what kind of caller information you want it to read out? Is it the caller's phone number or name?

    My Tone 900 reads out texts that come through the Verizon messaging app, but doesn't read anything from WhatsApp

    Yeah, I can get it to read out the last text message/newest text message and also it'll read out Hangouts messages. I am using the Tone and Talk App for this functionality.

    This is the app I am using, but I cannot get it to read out caller information like I'm looking for. So far I can only get it to read out newest messages through my headset.

    I would love if it would just simply read me the number of an incoming call if the caller is not in my contacts, or the contact name if it has been previously saved in my contacts. Thank you!

    Sorry for the mess I made of the replies. I cannot figure out how to delete them to add in the quote without duplicating them!

    Don't worry, I removed one of the duplicate posts.
