I can close phone calls with that button by default, but for me it would be even more useful to be able to answer a phone call the same way.

Is there a setting or an application that would enable that?

The main idea is to be able to answer a call without interacting with the touch-screen, but only with the real buttons.

This is a Xiaomi a2 phone, not rooted.

    Please note that recommendations like Is there an app for X are off-topic here (see What topics can I ask about here? for details). For where your question might fit better, you might want to look into Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions? and Where to ask for app recommendations?. So I've rephrased your question to fit here. // Note that at least some custom ROMs have such a setting IIRC.

    Another detail we might need: is the device rooted? Are e.g. modules for Xposed or Magisk an option?
