Improved Emergency Dialer

  • Android’s Emergency Dialer is close to useless because there is a list of fixed emergency numbers, which we’re not sure if they’re SIM-specific or contains all common emergency numbers like 100, 911, etc. In real emergencies, there are only a couple of numbers you would want someone else to call (could be your parents, siblings, spouses, children, etc). So in addition to the existing emergency dialer, can we have a bunch of user-defined contacts who can be called from the lock screen without unlocking, in emergency situations?


    @rhoadster91 We are also looking at addressing this problem of reaching out to emergency contacts, thanks for the suggestion. Btw i have one question, would you like a shortcut/gesture etc to reach that one emergency contact or do you want to go through a list of multiple emergency contacts?
