Truecaller has announced the introduction of new features on its mobile application that will see it replace all unknown numbers in your call history with a name and picture.
The new features, Smart Call History, Availability, and a brand new dialer are expected revolutionize the way people make and take calls by making communication safer and more delightful, by giving users more information about those one communicate with, which is core to Truecaller’s mission.
With the integration of the new features, Truecaller becomes an essential app for anyone looking to have more control over their incoming and outgoing calls. The latest update began rolling out to users on android on March 8, and will reach all users in the coming weeks. Existing Truedialer users will be gradually upgraded to the new Truecaller experience.
“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 and 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.”
Integrated new features include – Smart Call History which replaces unknown numbers with real names and faces in your call history, even for numbers that are not saved in your contacts, meaning that you don’t need to save contacts to your phonebook; Availability which shows you if your friends and contacts are free to talk before you call, ensuring that you never get a busy signal or interrupt someone again and Built-in dialer which allows you to make all your calls directly with Truecaller.
In 2014, Truecaller launched Truedialer to bring similar improvements to the dialer, which had not evolved since the introduction of the smartphone. After overwhelming demand from users, Truecaller are now bringing many of the great features from Truedialer and integrating them into Truecaller, giving you full control your entire calling experience with just one app.
