Smart SMS experience: This new feature on Truecaller lets users keep messages organised, something similar to SMS organiser. It has the visibility of any important messages which will become far easier thanks to smart filters such as transactions, deliveries, travel, bills, etc. The company explains, “Since most SMSs are one-way incoming messages, we are presenting all important messages chronologically thereby ensuring that discovery of any important messages will become far easier so that users don’t have to go in and out of different SMS threads to read every new SMS. You can also filter by top senders”.
