    I have an aftermarket head unit in my car for bluetooth but no steering wheel button to make calls. I currently have an iPhone 6 that I can unlock with a thumbprint and then hold down the home button to get the voice prompt over my bluetooth to voice dial. Is there a way to do this easily with an S8? If I understand correctly the fingerprint reader is on back and that shouldn't be a problem... but then how to activate the voice prompt? I hope not a swipe because that is 2 hands... or an iris scan since that means holding the phone up to my face. I haven't had an android in a couple of years since my old Galaxy S3.

    look at using smartlock function on your phone with your Car Bluetooth as the trusted source - https://www.androidcentral.com/smart-lock

    Thanks for the link. Looks like that'll work. But being that the phone is unlocked how would I activate the voice command feature since there is no home button on an S8?

    you can also use bixby, will bypass everything. although it does have a hard time when there is a lot of ambient noise.
