Truecaller rolls out new version adds new features
Caller identification firm Truecaller is rolling out a new version of its Android app that brings in several new features and product enhancements.
Dubbed as Truecaller Version 12, the app has introduced Video Caller ID that lets users set a short video that automatically plays when they call friends or family. One can either record their own short video that will be stored on Truecaller's servers or choose from one of the built-in video templates.
Call recording, which was earlier available only to premium users of Truecaller, is now being extended to all of its users. This will allow users to record their incoming or outgoing calls regardless of whether your device manufacturer includes the feature or not. All recordings are stored locally on the device storage and one can listen or delete recordings through the app. They can also be shared via email, Bluetooth or any messaging service.
For premium and Gold subscribers, Truecaller has introduced a Ghost call feature that lets users setup fake incoming calls and a Call Announce feature that will speak the names of the incoming callers out loud.
The app also comes with a redesigned interface that features separate tabs for calls and text messages, allowing users to access their text messages as well as individual and group chats with a single tap.
