Even though this new feature will represent verified businesses as their owners want to showcase, however, the company’s spam algorithms will continue to work like before. This means that all users just like before will be able to mark spam calls, even if they have a verified badge.

As a pilot start, over 150 businesses signed up for the program. All of them saw an increase in phone calls getting picked during the early access phase, according to the company.

Truecaller enterprise has been set up with the strong intent of building solutions for businesses that will not just improve the efficiency of their communication but also provide significant value and safety to consumers in their day-to-day lives”, said Sony Joy, VP, and Head of Truecaller Enterprise.
