Truecaller Unveils Call Reason Feature on Android

The company said that its platform had earlier solved the question of ‘who’ as it enabled the users to identify the calls and now with its latest addition, it is solving the ‘Why.’

“We’ve been seeing tweets and messages from you telling us that you wanted to know why people were calling. It’s clearly a great idea, so we made it happen,” the company said in a blog post.

Truecaller said that the Call Reason feature aids users by making them understand if a call is urgent, personal or business. It was said that the users can set three custom reasons that they think would use the most for Call Reason. Additionally, Truecaller said that its users can write a reason every time they call or skip writing the reason altogether.

“We can think of a thousand more ways this will change your calling experience,” the company said. “To access it, simply click on the Call Reason button before making a call.”
