And here’s yet another cool addition from Nokia aka Microsoft Mobile for your Lumia Windows Phone devices. ‘Gestures Beta’ from Microsoft Mobile allows you to Answer your calls, switch them to speaker mode, mute the mic during a call and silence incoming calls with the help of Gestures without touching the display.
“Welcome to Gestures !
With Gestures you can control some of the functionalities of your phone without touching the display.
Our first 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 the incoming call ringer by flipping device display down.
630, 635 and 530 have limited functionality.
I am sure some of you past Samsung users would be familiar with the above features but if I am not wrong then they were only for high-end devices unlike with Lumia range where the above would work flawlessly with devices right from Lumia 520 to Lumia 1520 & 930.
