Latest Technology News: Truecaller brings AI call screening feature to Android phone

Truecaller Assistant is an artificial intelligence (AI) based call screening feature. It was actually launched in September 2022 but only now is it available in India.

It is a very handy tool that can greatly help users in an important meeting or while driving a vehicle.

When turned on, it can answer calls and ask the reason for the call. It will be saved and it can be viewed once the user has some free time and makes the courtesy call or if it was not important or it was spam they can just ignore it.

Additionally, the Truecaller app provides the option (green button in the screenshot) for users to pick up the call midway as well.

It should be noted that the Truecaller app will by default notify the caller that the call is being answered by the virtual assistant and initiate the conversation by first asking the purpose of the call and duly noted in the live transcribed page on the phone. The phone owner can see the conversation and then decide whether to take the call personally or decline it.

For now, this feature is available on Android phones in India. The company plans to bring Truecaller Assistant to the iOS version for iPhone soon.

Moreover, Truecaller Assistant is available in five voices in female and male versions. However, for now, it will be available in English, Hindi and Hinglish (a mixture of English and Hindi). The company plans to support more Indian languages ​​in the future.

Also, it will be available for a 14-day free trial, after which users will need to subscribe to a premium plan, which incidentally starts at Rs 149 per month or 1,499 per year.
