How to show incoming call screen when screen is locked on Android

1848 views android

I'm developing my custom calling app, like skype and I need to show "incoming call" screen to user, when I receive fcm message. I use full screen intent notification for this purpose. My code now is like this:

        val intent = Intent(Intent.ACTION_MAIN, null)
        val fakeIntent = Intent()
        intent.flags = Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NO_USER_ACTION or Intent.FLAG_ACTIVITY_NEW_TASK
        val pendingIntent = PendingIntent.getActivity(ctx, 1, intent, 0)
        val pendingIntent2 = PendingIntent.getActivity(ctx, 1, fakeIntent, PendingIntent.FLAG_ONE_SHOT)
        val builder = Notification.Builder(ctx)

        // Set notification content intent to take user to fullscreen UI if user taps on the
        // notification body.
        // Set full screen intent to trigger display of the fullscreen UI when the notification
        // manager deems it appropriate.
        builder.setFullScreenIntent(pendingIntent, true)

        // Setup notification content.
        builder.setContentTitle("Call from Vitalii")
        builder.setContentText("Your notification content.")

        // Use builder.addAction(..) to add buttons to answer or reject the call.
        val acceptAction = Notification.Action.Builder(Icon.createWithResource(ctx, R.drawable.ic_launch), "Accept", pendingIntent).build()
        val declineAction = Notification.Action.Builder(Icon.createWithResource(ctx, R.drawable.ic_launch), "Decline", pendingIntent2).build()
        val notificationManager = ctx.getSystemService(
        if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.O) {
            val channel = NotificationChannel("callnotification", "Incoming Calls", NotificationManager.IMPORTANCE_MAX)
            val ringtoneUri = RingtoneManager.getDefaultUri(RingtoneManager.TYPE_RINGTONE);
            channel.setSound(ringtoneUri, AudioAttributes.Builder()
        val notification =
        notification.flags = Notification.FLAG_INSISTENT
        currentNotificationId = Random().nextInt(500)
        intent.putExtra("notifid", currentNotificationId)
        notificationManager.notify("callnotification", currentNotificationId, notification)

And when screen is unlocked I receive calling notification with buttons to accept the call and decline. But when screen is locked I receive only sound and vibration, but not the custom screen with buttons like in telegram, whatsup and viber. How can I show such custom screen when device is locked?

Add following code in your CallActivity:

getWindow().addFlags(WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_SHOW_WHEN_LOCKED| WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_TURN_SCREEN_ON|WindowManager.LayoutParams.FLAG_TRANSLUCENT_STATUS);

PS:It's java code,if you use kotlin then change it by yourself.
