Google’s Phone app Beta can be installed on any phone
Google’s Phone (dialer) app was added to more, non-Google devices back in April. As per Android Police, the Phone app is now available to download on more smartphone brands as well. The app works on both Samsung and OnePlus devices as Android Police has pointed out. We can corroborate that it works on the OnePlus 8 Pro.
We were able to install it by enrolling to the App’s Beta program through this link on a computer, and then downloading the app via the Play Store (also from desktop). The Phone app isn’t easy to find from the Play Store app, but you can use a direct link here.
Sadly, the Google Pixel’s best feature – Call Screening – is not available for devices other than Pixel phones in the US (in English). We sure hope Google plans to make this feature available to non-Pixel devices in the future, as its easily a major selling point in a world where annoying spam calls ring every day.
Do keep in mind that the App is in Beta, so outgoing/incoming phone calls have the potential for the occasional wonkiness depending on your model. Note that the Beta program also depends on your geological location and may not be available in your country.
Can you explain that screenshot? I didn't understand how there's a "your device is not compatible" error on the screen at the same time as a progress bar showing the installation progress lol
