Hmm I had the same, I watched the call screen for a moment and it didn't do anything however it then started to introduce itself to the caller. Perhaps try again and see if if kicks in? I then noticed, after this first call screen call, the red error disappeared

    I'm in the UK. Yes, my set language is English and not French or German, but I have this kind of error at present. I'm hoping that it clears up as I tried this at the very beginning so on T
    uesday afternoon
    Working here in the UK. Downloaded the language file, and worked straight away.

    Have really wound my son up when he called me just, by experimenting with it.
    He got so annoyed he put the phone down on me 😂😂
    Where in settings do you find this please
    In the phone app setting, should be under the Assistive heading if you have it, just above Caller ID and spam (I'm on the beta for the phone app).
    Thanks for the answers, I double-check I had only one language on the phone. So I guess I only need to wait some times for the Call Screen activation... Would be nice to have a small hack to enable it, but I can wait. I guess it's maybe a random rollup, I don't think it's regional as all french smartphone was packaged to add the USB-C earbuds (french law make mandatory to sell these with a phone as a "hands-free kit" for drivers), but all french doesn't have the feature available at this time.

    I also tried to see if it appear after using a VPN (with UK, Germany and US location) and clear cache/force shutdown for the phone app, and still nothing. (I know this was working often with firmware update on my previous OnePlus phone)
    VPN is not enough to fool Screen Call. You need to spoof your location, language, use an unlocked App version via sideload and even then chances are slim that it's going to work. Back in the days it was possible to sideload some stuff and activate a couple lines code, but then about a year or so Google changed most of the Call Screen stuff server-side, so you as an enduser can't to ****. They either unlock it for you - or you're out of luck.
    did you manage to download the language update?
    Seemed to download and install from the notification panel but still says it needs to download on the app.
