    Welcome to Android Central! I've been seeing posts about this lately, but no one has responded to any of my inquiries. People say that when they "tap the Answer button," it doesn't answer. The question here is if the problem is occuring with the incoming call notification (at the top of the screen, when you're actively using the phone for something else), or if it occurs with the fullscreen incoming call screen (when the phone is asleep and then you get a call). With the former, a single tap on the Answer button should work. With the latter, you typically have to swipe the button, not just tap it. When are you seeing the problem?

    I have the same problem. After the update I can no longer answer calls or dismiss alarms from the lock screen. I'm doing the same thing I used to do - tap the 'Answer' button or hit the 'Dismiss' button. It appears to register the tap, but it doesn't do anything. It's very frustrating.

    I've just set 'use volume up to answer calls' as a workaround. I use volume down to dismiss alarms. But no-one seems to have an answer to the problem.

    Welcome to Android Central! Thanks for those details -- can you also tell us if swiping the Answer button on the incoming call lockscreen doesn't do anything either?

    Are you swiping the green button? You can't just tap it.

    @P Darway, same question, if you\'re still watching this thread.


    And how can anyone have updated to Android 10 in 2018, when it's still in beta in June 2019? Android 9 (Pie), maybe?

    Any updates (sorry, no pun intended) on this? A co-worker of mine just told me about this problem yesterday.
