How do I keep the display on during a call?

On the Samsung S8, is there a way to keep the display on during a call?  I use to have this option available on the S6 but I can't find the same option on the S8.  Does anyone know if this is possible with the S8, can this be done without having to increase the time before the display turns off?

Thank you for reaching out to us for support, Fmora. I want to make sure that your device isn't potentially timing out a call. Do you have the "Smart Stay" option or the "Keep Screen Turned Off" option on? Both of these settings can affect the display where Smart Stay will lose sight of your face or the screen turning off due to being in a dark environment.
