Hi All,

Got my Pixel 4 XL yesterday and I am rooted, just wondering how to go about activating call screening for us users outside of US ?

Is it the same as what we did last year on Pixel 3 ?

Here is the contents of dialer_phenotype_flags.xml , not quite sure what should be changed:

Code:
    <boolean name="G__allow_in_app_spam_write" value="true" />
    <boolean name="G__enable_simplified_emergency_ui" value="true" />
    <long name="G__ramping_ringer_dialer_vibration_duration" value="5000" />

I've successfully got Call Screen working on Pixel 4 outside the US, I'm in Taiwan by the way.
I modified these things below to "true"

G__call_screen_audio_listener_enabled
G__speakeasy_show_privacy_tour
G__speakeasy_postcall_survey_enabled
G__speak_easy_bypass_locale_check
G__speak_easy_enable_listen_in_button
G__enable_speak_easy_is_spam_survey
G__enable_speakeasy_details
G__speak_easy_enabled

Change those parameters to "true" then you can use call screen outside the US.

But I'm still wondering if I should set "G__enable_call_screen_saving_audio" to "true"

Anyone know if it would be possible to make an edxposed or magisk module to make this change? Never worked with xposed that much, and not sure if it's possible to have magisk write to /data instead of /system, but figured I'd ask...

Update: tried enabling by editing the file directly, then clearing force closing and clearing data for the dialer app - still no call screening available. In the UK, device language UK English, dialer beta updates enabled.

This has been discussed to death on Reddit and xda...

Sure it's been discussed a lot, but is there actually a method that works reliably? Because every post I've seen points to the same flags in the same preferences file, and no one seems to have confirmed it working on a Pixel 4 on the stock rom yet.

Weird... I factory reset my phone yesterday and I found it working on older version of Phone app 34.0.261218393 but not working on the latest version 41.0.277149592.

Update:
40.0.274600228 works.
40.0.275948326 works.

I almost confirm that version above 41 won't work.

Can confirm that after uninstalling updates, grabbing version 40.0.274600228 from apkmirror, editing the prefs file, and force closing the app, I'm able to use call screening in the UK! The only thing that doesn't work is trying to select the alternate voice option - I just get an error message on that and it doesn't play so I don't even know what it would sound like.

You can see this. I made a screen recording of these two voices demo.

Guess Google fix this "trick" after version 41

I'm pretty sure since Google moved the Call Screening stuff from the phone app to the google assistant app, you have no chance of making it available anymore.

Hi, are you on dialler 43? How did you activate? Kindly post the method. Thanks.
New version doesn't work for call screening outside US. Download this version from Google.
And later use method 2 from this post to edit the files using explorer.
Once u see the call screening option in the diaper settings, it will use wifi and download around 70mb file for the voice options.

    I can confirm this works, both Google pay and call screen (beta as well) is enabled
    Yes it does!, I rejoined the Beta program, closed the app and reboot.
    still fully enabled.

    So finally here to give the report!

    Got call screening to work after the following steps ( some not directly relevant but just FYI)

    Removed AOSiP ROM ( had bugs on face unlock, camera app, call screen interchangeably after every combination of work arounds that i tried. So i gave up)
    Installed Pixel Dust ROM ( excellent ROM once I figured how to get it on)
    Magisk (root) + Xdeposed +enableSoliforpixel4 ( to enable gestures) + market unlocker

    actual solution

    Uninstalled all updates on play store, messages and phone
    Left Beta programs ( message + phone)
    Cleared storage + cache for all three above
    Launched and enabled market unlocker
    Launched Playstore and updated the 3 apps
    Voila!
