Now, Truecaller is going to add VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) calling feature for all of its Android users worldwide. It's named as ‘Truecaller Voice’. This feature allows users to make free voice over cellular data or Wi-Fi to other Truecaller users.
This new calling feature has a similarity with other voice calling feature that available on Google Duo, Skype, Facebook Messenger, and WhatsApp.
This feature lets users make HD (high definition) quality voice calls with low latency. With the feature, the voice calls will be connected quickly over cellular data or Wi-Fi internet connections. There are also some shortcuts such as call log, contact profile, messages inbox, and after call screen to help call other Truecaller users easily. With this feature, users can use the same app for SMS, instant messaging, voice calling, UPI payments (for money transfer and bill payments) and spam detection.
Rishit Jhunjhunwala, VP of Product at Truecaller, said,
We are ecstatic with the launch of Truecaller Voice. We have been working towards building a full communication suite for our users and voice calling is the next big step in line with this mission.
The company stated that the rollout of Truecaller Voice feature started June 10. At the initial stage, the new feature is being done in a phased manner, which means that it's not accessible for everyone from day one. The company claimed that all of its Android users will get the feature eventually. So, Android users have to install Truecaller and should update the app from the Play Store and wait for it to show up, if not appear the voice calling feature on the App. For now, the feature hasn’t been rolled out to iOS users. It will be released in a few weeks for the iOS ecosystem.
