Questions and Answers

How to re-enable quick calling option?

The quick calling option by swiping down was working fine with my HTC One m8 eye till it had the Android Lollipop version. Ever since I updated to Android Marshmallow, the option doesn't work, even though it is ticked on in the settings. All other motion gestures are working fine however, like unlocking the phone by swiping up and launching blink feed by swiping right. I have tried: Checked the option off and on again. Restarting the phone multiple times.. I think it was caused by: Software update. But was working for a while even after the update
