    I heard iOS 13 has a new built-in feature that blocks all incoming calls, not in your Contacts & silently sends them to voicemail. Does android have something like that? Is there an app that does something like that? if so what is/are the best options? I get so many damn spam calls it drives me crazy! I'm good at adding them to a blocklist but I still get several a day. A feature that blocks calls not in my contacts would be fantastic.
    Thanks!

    There are several call blocking apps. We use Hiya on our Android phone.

    On our iPhone, we use Mr. Number, Robokiller, and True Caller.

    You can set up your "Do not disturb" to allow only calls from contacts. That might help.

    One big difference between Android and Apple phones is the number and types of included features. Another is the ability to disable bloatware. Look up ”(your phone) features” online. You may be surprised to find out what all you can do without additional apps. Also, try looking at the (online) user manual.
