Truecaller [https://www.truecaller.com/]has completely revamped its app UI along
with many new features, in a bid to streamline calling and messaging services on
For now, the feature is being rolled out to Android users in India and
eventually, it will make its way to iOS.
The main addition to the new update is a Home tab that has merged both messages
and calls tabs into one. It features all the recent contacts that users have had
a conservation with, either on text or call in a single list. To make voice
calls or begin a chat, users will have to click on the contact on the Home tab.
The Home tab also has a search bar to make it easier to find a conversation
using a phone number or a name.
Additionally, Truecaller is giving users the ability to toggle to a ?Full-Screen
Caller ID?. Normally, when users receive calls, the phone?s default Caller ID is
displayed along with a floating pop-up notification from Truecaller. Now, users
can choose to use Truecaller?s CallerID interface that replaces the default one
and gets rid of the pop-up.
Instead, all the information from the pop-up is displayed on the whole screen
along with a colour that indicates the type of contact, like blue for saved
contacts, red for spammers, purple for priority calls and gold for Truecaller
With the update, Truecaller is also giving users the Smart SMS feature that will
learn to identify and sort messages into four categories ? Personal, Important,
Others, and Spam. All the categories are found in the Home tab below the search
Some messages like financial and payment notifications will be directly be
sorted into Important. But the machine learning-based feature will gradually
also learn to identify users preferences. According to Truecaller, the
processing happens offline and no messages leave the mobile device so payment
transactions remain secure.
