Call from phone does still not work in 2023

Description of the issue:
The “call from phone” feature does not work as intended. Same as in the threads linked below, which were simply closed without a proper response.

How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. Highlight a phone number.
  2. Right click for the context menu.
  3. Choose “Call from [Google] Phone”.
  4. Error message appears: Something went wrong. Try again later.

Expected result:
The number is forwarded to my phone.

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.47.171 Chromium: 109.0.5414.87 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Additional Information:
Windows 10 Enterprise, 21H2, 19044.2486

Instead of spamming to ‘bump’ your post, maybe it is better if you research.

First, Who says it should work? and why should it work only because it works in Google (company that develops Chromium and Android, so it is kind of obvious they do features that will favor their ecosystem)

Maybe it is time to be better than some people who are still commenting on github saying ‘it doesn’t work’ when it clearly was disabled but probably they missed the right click one, or Chromium pushed a new update that changed things.

A simple search in Github (because Brave browser is fully open source) would take you to this PR:

Well, I don’t know how a title like that can’t be clear.

You could also have reached this issue:

and see how the test and PRs are to show how it is was never meant to work, and the goal was always to disable it.

Why should I search through GitHub or do research if there is an official Brave forum?
I discovered a problem with Brave, so I searched through the official Brave community forum and only found posts which were unanswered and then closed due to the 30 day limit. Therefore I created a new post and made sure that it won’t be closed until it gets a proper answer (which it now got, thanks to you!).

Okay, they disabled the feature - fine. But why don’t they remove it from the UI or display a proper error message, letting the user know that this feature is not available in Brave?

If there are so many users commenting on the GitHub forum, it indicates that the UX is not properly designed.

Because before asking someone to do the work for you, you should do the work yourself.

According to the FAQs of this forum:

Brave Community is a place for users to get help and report issues with Brave

And that’s what I did.

I never asked nobody to “do work for me”. I never asked someone to point me out to the GitHub threads or to give me instructions on “how to do research yourself”. I reported an issue as intended by this forum.
