Direct phone calls

Hello to all.


Do you know / is it possible to make a phone call trough Powerapps without asking the phone to confirm/cancel the number?

Right now I'm just using Launch("tel://" & "112") on the On Select property of a field and it asks for confirmation (bottom of second pic).



Do you have any idea how can I workaround this? (whether it's Android or iPhone I get the same behaviour)

Thanks in advance. 

Regards to all.

To the best of my knowledge there is no way to make a phone call directly from inside Power Apps.  The code you are referencing passes the telephone number to the operating system.  It is the OS that issues the prompt before making the call.  I don't think there is any way to get around that prompt.

Thanks for the input PStork1.

I've been doing some search of my own that goes along your explanation as well.

I'm trying to do this for a "dead man app" where each additional click is important and must be limited to the max.
