Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has a feature named automatic answering which will let you easily answer incoming calls, even without you have to touch any on-screen icon, pressing any physical button or saying any voice command. If this feature is enabled, your phone will automatically answer incoming calls after 2 seconds when a headset or Bluetooth device is connected.

You can turn this feature on by using the following steps:
  1. Open Phone app.
  2. Tap More at the top right and then select Settings.
  3. Slide the ON/OFF switch next to Automatic answering to the right to enable it. The switch turns green as a sign that the automatic answering feature is enabled.

How to use the automatic answering feature?
Assuming that the automatic answering feature is enabled and a headset or Bluetooth device is connected to your phone, when an incoming call arrives, your phone will automatically answer the call after 2 seconds.
