Caller IDs are not a new generation thing. They came into existence in the 1970s and got into landlines around the 1980s. With the passage of time and ascending technological innovations, caller ids took shape of an app and were put into mobile phones. In India, one of the most used Caller ids in mobile phones is ‘Truecaller.’

What is Truecaller?

Having most of its employees and customer base in India,.Truecaller was founded in 2009, in Stockholm, Sweden by Alan Mamedi and Nami Zarringhalam. Reportedly as of today, Truecaller has around 280 million active users all over the world.

Truecaller is a mobile application that isa new generation caller id. It is used to find out the caller’s identification number. It also facilitates call blocking and calls recording options. This app can be downloaded both in android and iOS systems. Most importantly the app is fully functional only over the usage of the internet. Yet many mobile phone and internet users have this app on their devices to get rid of unwanted and spammy calls. 

Truecaller is highly encrypted and enables calling and chatting options with utmost privacy and security. The app has both free and premium features. The premium features enable users to identify the location and other aspects of the callers.  

Features of the Caller id App like Truecaller

Some of the important features of a caller id app include,

Identification of Caller-id of the caller

This feature allows the users to identify the caller’s details. If there is no caller id then the entire purpose of a caller id app is vague. This feature is the most important feature of the true caller clone. With advanced coding and strategies, the identification of the caller details is possible.

If the call can be recorded then it will become a piece of evidence for any further use. Earlier there had to be another app to record the calls but with advanced features, this feature can now be implemented in the caller-ids.

The most important feature of a caller id application is the ability to block numbers from calling and messaging or from getting any kind of information from the user. As per the new up-gradation, if someone from the blocked number tries calling from any other number then that also can be identified and notified to the user.

Phone number search feature

Users can find a person’s number by typing their name or by using the photo search feature. This feature acts quite similar to directories of the previous era. With this feature finding, anyone can become very easy.

This feature helps the users to get notified regarding any meeting or schedule in the upcoming times. The caller id picks the schedule information majorly from the text messages.
