Samsung’s blog post includes a few other tidbits of information about the new feature.
Users can now access the lockscreen from anywhere on the phone, and the feature is currently available only in the U.S. but is expected to expand globally in the coming months.
Users will be able to control when and where they make phone call using the Lock Screen on the smartphone, and it will work regardless of whether they’re on Wi-Fi or cellular.
The feature will work from any device with an Android device running Marshmallow, the latest version of Samsung’s mobile operating system, which Samsung has released on its Galaxy devices since 2014.
The company said it is planning to add more features and updates in the future.
