Truecaller for Android Can Now Identify Unknown Numbers in Messaging Apps

Truecaller for Android Can Now Identify Unknown Numbers in Messaging Apps
  • Truecaller now identifies unknown numbers on WhatsApp.
  • This feature is exclusive to Android users.
  • It works on Line, Viber, and Telegram as well.

Caller ID service Truecaller has introduced some new features in its app recently, the big one being partial Live Caller ID support for iPhone. Now, a blog post reveals that the Android app even gives details for messages from unknown senders.

Expanding to messages, the Truecaller app identifies unknown numbers in messaging apps. The company claims that the app recognises unknown numbers in WhatsApp, Line, Viber, and Telegram apps. However, this isn't a default turned-on feature. This ability to identify unknown numbers in Messaging apps can be turned on in the Settings menu > General > Messaging apps.

Once enabled, users will be notified about the identity of the unknown number that just messaged them. In case an unknown makes a voice call over the app (presumably via a service tied to your phone number like WhatsApp), users are also notified about the identity. Of course, in both cases, the unknown number has to be saved in the Truecaller database. One could say the feature is similar to the Truemessenger app, however, it works across messaging apps and is not limited to SMSes.

This feature is exclusive only to Android users, and iPhone users should just be happy that live Caller ID has been introduced (with caveats) recently.

As mentioned earlier, iPhone users received the live caller ID feature earlier in May. However, the app had to be kept running in the background for the feature to work properly, and it only worked between two Truecaller users.
