A new feature, released by Android 12, makes calling for help much easier and faster: emergency numbers now appear on the phone screen depending on where the user is. In this way you do not have to memorize the numbering of each country, Android 12 offers them directly to dial.

Android 12 has introduced a remarkable amount of changes to the system, and that is still in beta (currently in version number three). Apart from renewing its design and customization thanks to Material You, and after largely evolving the privacy options, Google has improved the emergency screen with dynamic operation depending on where the phone is located. It’s a small change that can make a big difference.

To call emergencies it is not necessary to have a card or that the SIM is of the available coverage: any phone can call for help if it has network access. This operation, which guarantees the best coverage against accidents and catastrophes, has a drawback: you have to know the pertinent numbers for each country.

At European level 112 is the emergency number to call to request help in the event of any catastropheIt does not matter whether you call for help from the fire brigade, the police, or the ambulances. Now, at a particular level, each country in Europe can offer its own numbering; a fact that makes dialing difficult, especially with the nervousness that one suffers in emergency situations.

To make it easier to request help over the phone, and save some time during the process, Google has introduced dynamic emergency numbering in Android 12. That is, when accessing the help screen (the option appears when you press and hold the power button) the mobile will show different sliders with the emergency numbers of the country where you are. So you only have to move the one that is needed so that Android 12 puts the user in contact with the telephone help service.

As demonstrated in Android Police, Android 12 adapts the emergency screen to the country where the mobile is located. And if the territory uses different numbers the system gives a choice between all of them; always maintaining a clear, legible and easy-to-use style, all so that requesting emergency help is a matter of seconds.

The new dynamic emergency screen has appeared in Android 12 and in the Google Pixel, although it would not be strange if it was expanding to other mobiles and versions. In principle, it should greatly facilitate the request for relief.
