Truecaller is Now Going to Tell You Why Someone is Calling You


The Trucaller app announced on Wednesday, that it is rolling out the ‘Call Reason’ feature which will tell users why someone has called them. Also, it has said that there will be an SMS scheduling and message translation facility, for the users worldwide. All this is in addition to its basic feature of caller ID, provided by the app.

The app shall tell why someone has called so that people can decide whether to pick up the call or not. The person calling can state the reason for their call, which will eventually increase the pickup rates, especially when there is a call from some unknown number.

Businesses can set their customized text beforehand, which can increase their engagement with the customers. Right now the call reason feature will be available only for Android users, but next year even iOS users can have access to the facility.

The SMS schedule feature shall enable the users to schedule a reminder for events and meetings. The SMS translate feature shall immediately translate the content of the message in the app itself, without having to leave the app.
