Truecaller has received a new update that brings in a massive design overhaul with a minimalistic approach. Truecaller, the popular caller-identification service provider, has updated its app for Android and iOS. The company says the app is now faster and cleaner. The idea behind the update is to streamline your calls history, SMS, and Instant Messages conversations into a single tab. In addition, Truecaller is also getting two new features: a full-screen caller ID and Smart SMS that helps users automatically categorize their SMSes.
The biggest highlight of the update is the new home screen. This home screen acts as the main hub where you all see all your recent activities in one tab. You don’t need to switch between apps for calls and SMS. Just with a single click, users can enter the conversation to make a voice call, VoIP call, chat, text, etc.
Another new feature full-screen Called ID, Truecaller is getting ride of annoying small floating pop-ups. According to Truecaller, the Caller ID showcases different to identify what type of call it is: blue for calls from contacts or unknown numbers, purple for Priority calls from businesses or delivery services, red for known spammers, and gold for users with upgraded Gold accounts.
Sandeep Patil, Managing Director at Truecaller said “Communication in 2020 is easier in many ways, but also complicated by the vast amount of ways to connect with people and information. There is a need to streamline this experience, we believe. In recent years we have seen how Truecaller has become your communication hub where all spam – calls, and SMS – is identified and there is no need to switch between different apps for calls and messages. With this update, we want to make it even easier for users to have streamlined communication. At a time when we should be working to support each other in unity, it is unfortunate to see many scammers and fraudsters trying to capitalize on these difficult times. For over a decade now, Truecaller has been the main line of defense against such activity.”
Smart SMS & Insights: – Smart SMS uses advanced, on-device machine learning to automatically sort messages into four distinct groups: Personal, Important, Others, and Spam.
Find all financial & payment notifications in the Important tab, helping you keep track of bills, payments, and budgets. You can choose to pay a transactional SMS straight from the app or have Truecaller remind you later. Future updates will include travel reminders like flight delays, bus seat allocation, live tracking & updates on postal/courier deliveries, tax updates, and hospital/doctor appointments.
In the future, Truecaller plans to add travel reminders like flight delays, bus seat allocation, and important updates on postal/courier deliveries within the app. This feature will come first to India for Android users.
Truecaller has increased its efforts to tap into a large section of mobile users. Tryuecaller may be best known for its caller-identification features, but the app is trying to be an all-in-one solution. Last year, Truecaller Pay was introduced, the company’s instant payment service based on Unified Payments Interface (UPI). India is Truecaller’s biggest market in terms of the user base.
All processing happens offline and no message leaves the mobile device. All transactional information is securely stored on the mobile. This feature will be India first for all Android users.
