Truecaller started off as a call directory service and a tool to keep pesky calls away. However, the app has become insanely popular in the country, especially Android users. While it is available for iPhones as well, Truecaller has apparently become a must app on Android phones, where it has far more functionalities.

Over the years, Truecaller has expanded its portfolio with the launch of Truedialer and even native messaging service. However, a major update was recently rolled out that included support for feature phones and the UPI platform, enabling digital payment transfer from the app itself. The new version, called Truecaller 8, also brought in a new feature that will allow users to block pesky SMSes as well.

Another interesting development that is in the works is a deeper integration of Google s Duo video calling service within Truecaller 8. The integration allows Google Duo pull relevant data and provide it to the users.
