Truecaller today announced the launch of the comprehensive version of Truecaller for Windows 10. Available to download for free starting today in the Windows Store on Windows 10 enabled devices. Starting from the home screen, Truecaller rolls out new design and wizard to help users get started. For the first time, following the launch of the updated version, call history will be auto populated with Truecaller information including badges and profile pictures. With new, improved and streamlined list views on the home and discover screens, more information is ready and waiting at your fingertips, ensuring you are communicating only with the people you choose.
In this version, the call identification and block capabilities have been completely rethought. Using newly available API’s, Truecaller brings an entirely new experience to Windows 10 devices. Protect yourself against the ‘Top Spammers’ in your region, compile your own custom ‘Block List’, even block hidden numbers from contacting you. A new and improved after call screen lets you perform quick actions without having to open the app. You can now call back, send SMS, suggest a name, save number, mark a number as spam, or look it up in Truecaller.
Truecaller knows that the community of users value knowing which part of the world a number is from. Using Truecaller’s proprietary technology, caller ID is now enriched with location and carrier information. While the app will not show the exact location of the live call, the location data has been improved based off the area code and number series to ensure a more accurate location on incoming calls and number search.
Rishit Jhunjhunwala, VP Product at Truecaller, said, “We are working to reinvent the communications experience for billions of people and it has always been in our DNA to bring the best version of Truecaller to all the operating systems, and today, with the hard work of our great team, and our contacts at Microsoft, we are excited to bring our most comprehensive version of Truecaller for Windows Phone, to date!”
