Manage calls more naturally with Gestures Beta. Try it out and give us feedback.

screenshotWith Gestures Beta you can control some of the functionality of your Lumia phone without touching the display. 

This beta release will enable you to control calls and silence your phone conveniently.  You can:

  • Answer a call by picking up your phone and putting it to you ear
  • Mute your mic during a call by placing the phone on a flat surface with the display facing down
  • Put the call on speaker by placing the phone on a flat surface with the display facing up
  • Silence incoming call ringer by flipping phone display down

Note: Lumia 630, Lumia 635, and Lumia 530 will have limited functionality.

Try it now


We welcome your feedback

We are looking forward to receive your feedback on how it works for you and for your phone.  Tell us what you think about the individual features and what kind of improvements you would like to see by posting to our feedback forum.

    Working well on Lumia 635 — is the reason for limited features due to the lack of certain internal sensors of the entry level phones?

  18. Alex says:

  20. Samwize says:

    Works with Lumia 1520, but sometimes does not answer a call, when my third party flip cover is on the screen. Don't know how the answer-mechanic works so I cannot say if the cover is the problem.

    Wow loving it. All gestures working fine on 720 Cyan.

  30. Kyle Roque says:

    Works fine on Nokia Lumia 1020 but placing the phone down to change to speaker phone sometimes does not work. The camera bump of the 1020 is interrupting it so I have to put it in an angle where the phone is completely flat on the surface. Please fix in future updates. Thanks.

    Works fine on a Lumia 930 (Cyan, fully updated). Very useful indeed. This should definitely make it into standard Windows Phone. Only wondering why it hasn't been there all along … 😉

  37. Paul says:

    Does not seem to be working on

    Lumia 822 on VZ with dev preview.

  38. Yakko Warner says:

    Most of these features aren't available on my 810 (with the Developer Preview and 8.1) — all I get is "Answer calls when I raise the phone to my ear" and "Toggle speakerphone…"

  62. Akshay Patil says:

    Wow just exciting feature you have given that might jealous feel for Android mobile users

  63. Abdul says:

    There is some delay time for the phone to react to any of the actions. Silencing a ringing phone option did not work with me. Using the speak by placing the phone face up takes sometimes before it uses the speakers. Still needs tuning but nevertheless a good idea.

    Its cannot work on my Lumia 625…

  85. Abhijith says:

    The functionality was available in android a long time ago. But glad that Microsoft is catching up and stressing on the areas where it is behind any other Smartphone OS.

    Gestures is something which can be used regularly and is really helpful in situations where a person is multitasking. And though in BETA, the app performs splendidly. Kudos Microsoft!! and looking forward to many more apps.
