3 Easy Steps to Use Speed Dial on Android

Now for the TECH GEEKS who are just curious and wanted to know it as fast as possible here is the thing for them: a three-step quick procedure to set up a quick dial or speed dial on Android.

  • Open the default dialer app
  • Tap on three dots and select speed dial settings
  • In this menu, you have nine keys to set up all of them as the speed dial for different contacts.
    • Suppose you want to set the speed dial for your dad’s number in and set it up by tapping on the number ‘1’ and then selecting it as contact and saving it.

However, if you are wondering if you have the Google’s phone dialer app then here is the bad news for you. 

Speed Dial on Google Phone/Contact App

If your phone has Google’s phone dialer app then you won’t get a speed dialling option on the phone. Because Google’s contact and phone app do not support a quick dial feature. Instead, they have a favourite option to set any contacts as favourites. all the favourite contacts have been listed on the homepage of the app. 

This is the thing that many people are wondering and searching for. Even realme phones also have Google’s phone and that contact app so it is to be said that realme phones do not support quick dialer speed dial feature. 

Here’s the end of all the bad news but now good news for you. I have already written an article on the dialer apps that are too small and easy for you even without ads just like the Android launchers without ads that I previously wrote.
