TrueCaller reveals three new features

Date:23 October 2020 Author: Leila Stein

TrueCaller, the application which helps users identify who is calling them if they don’t have the number saved to their phone has brought out new features to expand their apps abilities.

The updates include scheduling an SMS, translating an SMS, and checking why a person is calling.

The app is mostly used by those who install it to identify a scam or cold calls from companies. The expansion to include the call reason further assists those who want to avoid picking up the phone to a salesperson.

However, this option only works if the person calling sets a reason. They can decide to identify their call as being personal, business-related, or something urgent.

“Although it only takes up a small part of the app, this feature will change the way you make and receive calls, just as our famous Caller ID has done for Truecaller users around the world,” said the company.

So far, only Android users will have access to this call reasons feature with the iOS version being launched in 2021.

“We are thrilled at the launch of Call reason, Schedule SMS, and SMS Translate. We have been working towards building an innovative communication suite for our users, these new features are the next big step in line with our mission,” said Rishit Jhunjhunwala, Chief Product Officer at Truecaller told IOL.
