Just days after getting 300 million monthly active users globally with 70% of the userbase residing in India. Truecaller has released version 12 for Android with some new exciting features including a ghost call and call recording option for all users.
The update brings a minor redesign to the app that separates calls and SMS into separate tabs, as requested by users. Video caller ID is one of the major additions to the app. This essentially allows you to record a short video of around 10 seconds that is played on your friend’s phone when you call them, and there are templates to choose from. This works only if both parties are using the Truecaller app.
Since the call recording feature which was previously exclusive to paid users is now available for free, a couple of new features have been made available to Truecaller Gold and Premium subscribers. The app will read out the name of the caller so that you know if you should go ahead pick up or ignore it. There’s also a nifty ghost call feature, which could be a neat trick for getting out of awkward situations or playing pranks. You can set a custom name, number, and even a profile picture before scheduling the fake call, or simply choose one of your contacts.
All of the aforementioned features are now rolling out with Truecaller V12 for Android and will be available in India before spreading globally. In the meantime, you can get the latest version of Truecaller from here.
