With the SOS feature in place to alert users of an emergency, and the Smart Assistant now using the “hold volume for 2 seconds” function, it seems channel alerts have been retired.
Is there a mechanism on the Relay to alert an app user that you need to talk, short of initiating an SOS emergency? If my wife is away from her phone but I need some information from her right now – but I’m not in any danger – is there an alternative to the SOS?
Like, if I go to the store for groceries and only remember 4 of the 5 items I was supposed to get, I don’t want to raise her blood pressure to ask her if it was ranch dressing she wanted me to get, but I don’t want to hang around the store for 10 minutes until she gets back to her phone either.
It’s a minor issue; reframing our interpretation of what the SOS is for is fine and will prevent hyperstolic episodes ;). Just wondering.
