Cyanogen OS to Bring Anti-Spam Feature in Dialers After Truecaller Deal
Some days ago we talked about Facebook Hello, a dialer being introduced by the social media giant to facilitate personalized searches and more. Before that it was news about Google’s own dialer with similar focus alongside the eternally in demand feature of blocking unwanted and spam calls.
As it appears, Cyanogen wants its users to have the facilities by introducing an anti-spam feature powered by Truecaller that will be introduced to the phones that run the OS through an update soon.
Thanks to our awesome global partnership with Truecaller, you’ll be able to screen calls via caller ID and block unwanted spam directly from the native dialer on Cyanogen OS. We’ll roll out this seamlessly integrated dialer experience on future smartphone devices that come preloaded with Cyanogen OS
In addition to that, the OS manufacturer has announced that smartphone users who own OnePlus One and Yureka “will be able to download this great new feature in a future OTA update” as well.
That being said, no specific launch dates were provided by the company which means we will just have to wait and watch.
As far as the app itself is concerned, it is not only going to give you the identity of the caller it will also keep you informed about feedback given by other users regarding a specific caller.
Despite the fact that the Truecaller anti-spam feature is going to come with phones running Cyanogen OS, the developers have said that users will “have the choice to use or uninstall [the] app based on your individual preferences.”
That is all for now, but keep checking back for more updates on mobiles, operating systems and more.
