Pixel 7pro call answering

My pixel 7pro seems to have two different incoming call notifications. 

The normal swipe up circle works fine but on occasions I get a square block near the top of the screen.  Tapping the green answer button does not answer the call and I am left with having to call the sender back.

Are the latest updates from Google on your handset, @Ja593? There were some peculiarities with Android Auto there for a while.

Also are you using a VOIP app as well as the normal dialler? Eg WhatsApp calls ring in differently and appear differently from regular calls coming in from the phone network to your phone.

Worth checking, and if you can repeat each symptom then you can work in addressing the problem. Google may help:

Good luck!

The phone is fully updated and using standard phone app,no WhatsApp etc. Will try and capture screen next time it comes up with this answer option but most of the time it shows the normal swipe up button.

The best place to ask is on the Pixel Community. 

The square block at the top is what happens in Android, when you are in a different application at the time the call comes in.. But if it doesnt do anything, then have a look for an update to the dialler, in the app store..

Did you find anything in a Google search, as above, for example?

And in your dialler settings, try the "Draw over other apps" setting to see if it helps:

@Ja593 

If tapping doesn't work try pressing on it longer.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.
