Sweedish caller ID and spam blocking app Company, Truecaller, has introduced an update to its version 6.60 on Android.
The new features – Smart Call History, Availability, and a brand new dialer, are integrated directly into the Truecaller app, to give users more control over incoming and outgoing calls.
The Smart Call History will replace unknown numbers with real names and faces in your call history, even for numbers that are not saved in your contacts. This means users now don’t need to save contacts on their phonebooks.
The Availability feature will show if your friends and contacts are busy on another call. This means users can avoid getting that busy signal or have interrupt someone during a call.
Built-in dialler allows users make telephone calls directly within Truecaller, though this is an entirely optional feature, you can still use whichever dialer you wish.
“Truecaller has become a necessity for hundreds of millions of people in their daily communication by always knowing who’s calling them and protecting them against spam calls. We are now taking this to the next level by changing the way people make phone calls with our integrated dialer and adding more context to your contacts that has never been seen before.” said Alan Mamedi, Truecaller co-founder & CEO.
“Now, you can completely replace your existing dialer and only use Truecaller for all your calls. We are also very pleased to see our OEM partners being so supportive of our mission.”
The company in 2014 rolled out a feature ‘Truedialler’ on Android and Windows Phone that automatically adds names and photos to unknown numbers in your call history.
The latest update has started rolling out to users on Android, and is expected to reach all users in the coming weeks, existing Truedialer users will be “upgraded” to the Truecaller experience.
