Musical notification of a call is not always convenient, while a visual one, that is, with a flash, is sometimes simply necessary. Such tools will come in handy for users with a hearing impairment or people doing some specific work where it is not possible to hear the ringtone in the surrounding noise.
We will try to figure out how to turn on the flash when calling on Android and iOS, and do it as painlessly as possible for both the smartphone itself and the user. Let's analyze the main regular functionality responsible for this process (if any), and third-party tools.
Before you turn on the flash when calling to Android using third-party applications, it will obviously be useful to clarify if there is a built-in possibility of such an alert in the stock firmware.
For example, almost all Samsung smartphones have such functionality built into the system and work great. In this case enableflash when calling to "Android" is very simple. It is enough to open the phone settings, go to the "Accessibility" section and find the "Hearing" item in it, after - "Flash notification", activate the "Flash" slider.
As for "apple" devices, starting from the fourth generation of gadgets, the ability to make a flash when calling on an iPhone is provided by default. We go into the settings, go to the "General" section, then open "Accessibility" and activate the slider on the "LED flash for warnings" item.
The only thing worth clarifying is that you can make a flash when calling on an iPhone only for the blocking mode. That is, in this state, it will work as it should, but when the screen is activated, alas, it turns off. Other indications work in a similar way: missed SMS, alarm clock, etc.
