How to answer locked LG G4 by pushing the Accept button

Hi,

I just got my new LG G4 and am trying to setup a feature that was available under my old Samsung Galaxy S3.  The feature was when an incoming call occurs and I have the screen locked (I have a pattern to unlock).  I was able to tap the Accept button instead of having to drag it.

How do I set this up on the G4?

Thanks

I appreciate your excitement over the amazing features & functions of the G4. You can set up smart lock on your phone for various places or even devices you may connect to your G4 http://spr.ly/6580B1L32 . You also can set up lock screen shortcuts to make performing functions even faster while the phone is locked http://spr.ly/6581B1L3N . Specifically step 7 helps with this

Hi Bryan,

Thanks for your reply.  I read through the smart lock options and can't find anything as simple as single tapping the green accept button when a call comes in (this was a system feature in android 4.3).  All I want to do is be able to answer a call quickly without having to drag the accept circle (which is a really, really stupid feature - wish Google would fix that).  It is a preference and not a security feature.

I understand your desire for certain feature Bryan. As I check my resources, I see that your phone is working as designed. Perhaps features will change with future software versions; however, no information is available about any future software versions (if any) for any phone.
