Truecaller revamps design, features via new update

New tabs and message categorisation for better organisation

Truecaller has released a complete redesign for Android and iOS users. The new version will now streamline calls history, SMS and Instant Messages conversations into a single tab, which will be the new Home screen.

All communication will now be at a glance, making it easier and faster too. However, the two biggest features unveiled are a full-screen caller ID and Smart SMS system that categorises all your communication cleverly.

Here are the new features in short:

Home Tab - Users can find all messages and calls merged into a single list on the Home tab and can see the latest activity. With a single click, you can now enter the conversation to make a voice call, VoIP call, chat, text and more.

Full-Screen Caller ID – No more pop-ups. With Full Screen Caller ID, you can now see who's calling on a full screen design instead of having a small floating pop-up. The Caller ID will now showcase colours to identify what type of call it is: blue for calls from contacts or unknown numbers, purple for Priority calls from businesses or delivery services, red for known spammers, and gold for users with upgraded Gold accounts.

Smart SMS and Insights - Smart SMS uses advanced, on-device machine learning to automatically sort messages into four distinct groups: Personal, Important, Others and Spam. Find all financial and payment notifications in the Important tab. It helps keep track of bills, payments and budgets. Choose to pay a transactional SMS straight from the app, or have Truecaller remind you later. Future updates will include travel reminders like flight delays, bus seat allocation, live tracking and updates on postal/courier deliveries, tax updates and hospital/doctor appointments. Truecaller says that all processing happens offline and no message leaves the mobile device. All transactional information is securely stored on the mobile. This feature will be India's first for all Android users.
