This feature is not on a current W3C standards track, but it is supported on the Firefox OS platform. Although implementations may change in the future and it is not supported widely across browsers, it is suitable for use in code dedicated to Firefox OS apps.

This API is available on Firefox OS for internal applications only.


The answerWaitingCall method is used to allow HFP devices to answer a pending incoming call on a CDMA network.

Note: In a GSM network the dialer observes call operations from RIL call state changes; however, in a CDMA network RIL call states do not change under some call operations, so HFP devices need this additional method to have the dialer to be informed of the operation.


var request = instanceOfBluetoothAdapter.answerWaitingCall();


A DOMRequest object to handle the success or error of the operation.


Not part of any specification yet. It should be discussed as part of the W3C's System Applications Working Group.
