Truecaller Gets Ghost Call, Call Announce, and Redesign Interface
Just recently, report Truecaller crossed 300 Million monthly users globally, and now the company has released version 12 of the app. The latest release has been tagged as the best version of Truecaller with ghost calling feature activated.
The version brings Video Caller ID, a redesigned interface, Call Recording, Ghost call and Call Announce.
Here are the new features
Video Caller ID – Video Caller ID is a fun feature that allows you to set a short video that plays automatically when you call friends and family. You can choose from one of the built-in video templates or record your own.
Streamlined New Interface – Truecaller now has separate tabs to show all of your SMS, Truecaller Group Chats and individual chats with just one tap.
Call Recording – Call Recording was initially introduced as a Premium only feature, but it’s now back and available to everyone running Android 5.1 and newer. With Call Recording, you can record all incoming and outgoing calls, regardless of whether your device manufacturer includes the feature or not.
All recordings are stored locally on the device storage and cannot be accessed by Truecaller
Ghost Call – Ghost call is a clever little hack to help Truecaller users get out of sticky situations or play a harmless prank on friends. With Ghost Call, you can set any name, number and photo to make it appear as if you are getting a call from that person.
If you prefer, you can also just choose a contact from your phone book. If you would like to receive the Ghost Call at a later time, you can schedule it. Ghost Call will only be available to Truecaller Premium and Gold subscribers.
Call Announce – If you enable this new optional feature, Truecaller will speak the caller ID for incoming phone calls out loud. This works for saved contacts as well as for numbers identified by Truecaller on both normal voice calls or Truecaller HD Voice calls. Like Ghost Call, Call Announce will only be available to Premium and Gold subscribers.
Truecaller 12 will gradually be rolled out to Android users in the coming weeks.
