Starting today, Truecaller for iOS and Android will integrate Google Duo in its app, allowing users to make video calls directly.

To place a video call, you need to simply open a users’ profile on your Truecaller app and it will show you the Google Duo video call icon.

One must also note that in order to place a video call, both the caller and the recipient need to have Google Duo installed on their respective devices. Truecaller says that the app switches between Wi-Fi and cellular data automatically for a seamless connectivity. The integration of Google Duo is on a permission basis, and users can opt in or out of it anytime.

Recently, Truecaller for Android added a new spam tab. The feature essentially allows users to sift out unwanted calls and bulk messages, and place them under one tab for easy identification. Although the service allowed users to report a particular number as spam, there was no way for users to organize messages into those received by users and those labelled spam.

As for iOS users, the service rolled out a new flash messaging feature. The feature offers users who are unable to take a call or have a full conversation on text, a one-tap solution to answer yes-or-no questions, share a location or call back. Flash messages are customizable, and users can choose to communicate via pre-defined messages, phrases and emojis.
