Truecaller New Features for iPhones
Live Caller ID through Siri: Truecaller has introduced a Live Caller ID experience on iPhone for the first time by integrating with Siri. When an iPhone user receives an incoming call from an unknown number, they can activate Truecaller with their voice by saying, "Hey Siri, Search Truecaller." The app will capture the number, find information about the caller, and present it on the calling screen. This feature is exclusively available to premium subscribers on iOS 16 and newer devices.
2X Better Spam Detection: Truecaller has enhanced its spam detection capabilities to better identify and protect users from spam calls. Premium subscribers receive automatic updates to the spam list, while free users can manually update the spam list to ensure better communication.
Comments on Spam Numbers: This update enables users to view and add comments on spam-marked numbers, providing more context about the true nature of the spammer. It empowers users to report on their own experiences and further enhances Truecaller's spam detection capabilities with valuable community input.
Revamped SMS Filtering: Incoming SMS messages will be automatically categorized into Finance, Orders, Reminders, Coupons, Offers, and Junk. This feature is live for iOS 16 and newer in India, South Africa, and Nigeria and will soon be rolled out to other countries.
Truecaller's latest update provides an added level of convenience to iPhone users, eliminating the need for manual number searches. The integration with Siri makes it easier to access the app's features and offers fast and accurate results within seconds.
