Truecaller update adds smart calling history, new dialer


The latest update for dialer alternative Truecaller adds a host of features including a status feature that shows if your contacts are free to talk.

According to the app’s makers, this latest edition of Truecaller is the most intelligent yet, revolutionizing the way Android smartphone owners make calls and stay in contact with their loved ones.

There’s plenty of new features and functions for users to get stuck into, with notable additions arriving in the form of Smart Call History, Availability and a brand new dialer.

Truecaller’s new Smart Call History tool means that unknown numbers are replaced with real names and faces in your call history, ‘even for numbers that are not saved in your contacts’. Essentially, this means there’s no need to save contacts to your phonebook. Handy.

Meanwhile, the new Availability function for Truecaller makes it easier than before to see if your friends are around for a chat. With this latest update to the Android app, you’ll never get a busy signal or interrupt someone again. Last but not least, the new Truecaller dialer allows you to make calls directly with the app.

Discussing Truecaller for Android and its user base, CEO Alan Mamedi said:

“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.”

This latest update will be rolling out to Android users today, Truecaller’s makers have confirmed, said to reach ‘all users’ in the coming weeks. Existing Truedialer users will gradually be upgraded to the new Truecaller experience.
