You don’t have to use the stock apps with your phone. Google has a phone app that can install from the Play Store on most Android phones. There are other third-party options as well.
If you’d like to try one of these, you’ll need to set it as the “default” phone app after installing it from the Play Store.
How to Change the Google Phone App
- First, swipe down once or twice from the top of the screen.
- Next, go to “Apps.”
- Select “Default Apps” or “Choose Default Apps” on a Samsung phone.
- There are a few different categories of default apps here, the one we want is “Phone App.”
Any app you have installed that can be the default phone app will appear here. Select the one you want to use.
