Truecaller has upgraded its Caller Id with a new call reason feature.
Have you ever wondered what is the reason for the call, currently ringing on your phone? Then Truecaller app has read your mind and come up with a solution to your query. Truecaller has upgraded its Caller Id with a new call reason feature.
Truecaller, introducing the new feature has mentioned on their blog post,
” These days, we need to know who is calling and why someone is calling. Truecaller has been the leader in telling you who, and now we are telling you why with Call Reason.”
In a bid to make communication better and more convenient, Truecaller is constantly seen adding more features to their app. The various features offered by the app include- caller identification, smart messaging, UPI payments, etc.
This new ‘Call Reason’ feature, added into an array of free features is recognized as an evolution of Caller ID. This feature will allow you to intimate the purpose of the call on your Caller ID and will depict the same at the recipient’s end while calling. Even if the call is missed by the recipient, the reason will still be visible on the receiver end.
Call Reason is featured to ease and let the person at the receiver end, understand the purpose of the call. The only condition applied to this feature is that both the caller and the receiver must have the Truecaller app installed on their respective phones. However, the default verified calls feature on Google’s Phone call app still enables the receivers to know the reason for the call.
The feature as reported in a blog post is released specifically on popular customer demand on social media. Truecaller expects to achieve better pickup rates, with the call reason feature, as the reason for a call will supposedly trigger the receiver to receive the incoming call. All the Android phones across the world bearing the Truecaller app, are now being featured with call reason. Truecaller also aims at achieving promising relationships with users, with the added facility.
Truecaller, the Swedish company says the new feature has the potential to change the way of calling and receiving them. For added convenience, users are facilitated to save three template messages that can be used as a reason for the call, ahead of initiating the call. Truecaller states that all of these messages are encrypted and the company will also not be able to see the contents of the reason.
Furthermore, Truecaller is easing this call reason feature for their Priority customers and verified businesses (including those on cloud telephony services), wherein the users will be able to set a Call Reason for when they call customers. The feature is expected to be made available next year.
