It is likely that Google will launch an app similar to Truecaller soon. According to reports, the search giant will soon launch a revamped version of Phone from the Google app. Although Google has yet to make an announcement on the next app, Google Call has been spotted by a user on YouTube. It is speculated that the new app is known as Google Call will provide caller ID and other features like Truecaller.
A YouTube announcement sparked rumors about the upcoming Google Caller ID app. It was first reported by a user on Reddit and spotted by 9to5 Google. The user shared a screenshot of the app that clearly shows the Google Call app. “You know who is calling. The trusted called ID allows you to respond with confidence, “the ad message reads. There is also an image of what the app will look like once it is launched. The app, just like Truecaller, will let you will tell who is calling.
The Google Call app that has a phone icon is not yet available on the Google Play Store. However, now that Google has advertised the app on YouTube, it may be preparing for a launch soon. Once launched, the app will compete with Truecaller, which recently got some advanced features.
Some of the noteworthy features that were implemented by Truecaller included Reason for calling, Schedule SMS, Translate SMS. The app, which has over 250 million users, identifies spammers by showing who is calling with the spam details in the pop-up. The latest features would not only tell a user who is calling, but also tell him why that person is calling.
The Call Reason feature allows users to set a reason for their call so that the recipient can decide whether they want to answer or not. The user can set whether the call is personal, business or urgent. Often, users receive telecaller calls in the middle of something very important. This feature would allow callers to declare the reason for the call depending on which one will be received.
Users can also schedule SMS on Truecaller by choosing a date and time on the app. This feature is only available for Android users. The app also has an SMS translation feature which automatically detects if a foreign language is used in the message screen and shows that a translation is available. With so many advanced features available in Truecaller, Google should provide enough and better reasons to attract subscribers.
