    I currently have the Moto Z Force phone and am going to be switching to AT&T so I'll have to trade in my current phone for an S8.

    On the Moto Z Force there's an app called Moto Voice which will answer calls and texts while driving. Is there a similar app or feature on the S8 that will do this?

    Hopefully that's the case. While Motorola can answer calls or texts while driving, a bug causes the speaker phone to always be on after answering calls until the phone is restarted.

    I think the att drive app that comes on the phone does what you want. I've never used it though so I'm not 100% sure.

    A Samsung flagship phone and Tasker can do just about anything. (Well, maybe not cook dinner, unless they put a microwave oven on the IoT.)

    If your car doesn't have Android Auto built into its head unit you can still install AA and run it on the phone as a standalone app. I'm not sure what the capability is of answering phone calls (using your voice) while driving, because I always use the phone call button on my steering wheel to answer phone calls and it is integrated into my radio via the AA app. However, I believe the AA texting by voice feature (and reading texts back to you) should work in AA mode.

    And there doesn't appear to be a way to answer calls by voice in AA:

    Here are some "drive mode" apps to try...Drivemode seems to be the most downloaded and highest reviewed:

    Samsung has a Car Mode app from the Galaxy Store made by Samsung. I don't really use it though.
