YouMail Update Includes One-Click Unwanted Call Blocking

Unsolicited, unwanted calls. We all get them. They are the spam of voice calls. If you use Google Voice, you can already block unwanted calls, but not everyone wants to port their number to GV. For those folks, there’s YouMail, a visual voicemail app that can use your own phone number as long as you forward unanswered calls to their service.

Today, YouMail has announced that the new versions of both their apps, YouMail and WhoAreYou, now support one-click blocking of calls from unwanted numbers. Blocking a number causes calls from that number to no longer be visible or ring the phone. On top of that, blocked callers will not be able to leave a message, and they receive a greeting that states the number is out of service. Out of service numbers tend to get removed from spammer call lists. Bonus!
