Truecaller, a popular dialer alternative for Android, has gained some new functionality in its latest update. You'll now have a smart call history, the ability to change your availability, and a revamped dialer, plus much more. Truecaller has already offered the ability to block various callers, and easily identify who was calling you, and this is the next step forward for the team. The company describes the new features as:

  • Smart Call History replaces unknown numbers with real names and faces in your call history, even for numbers that are not saved in your contacts. Now you don't need to save contacts to your phonebook.
  • Availability shows you if your friends and contacts are free to talk before you call. Now you'll never get a busy signal or interrupt someone again.
  • Built-in dialer allows you to make all your calls directly with Truecaller.

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN, March 8th 2016. Today, Truecaller introduces the most intelligent way to communicate by integrating new features to revolutionize the way people make and take calls: Smart Call History, Availability, and a brand new dialer.

Making your communication safer and more delightful, by giving you more information about those you communicate with, is core to Truecaller's mission. With the integration of the new features, Truecaller becomes an essential app for anyone looking to have more control over their incoming and outgoing calls.

Integrated new features:

  • Smart Call History replaces unknown numbers with real names and faces in your call history, even for numbers that are not saved in your contacts. Now you don't need to save contacts to your phonebook.
  • Availability shows you if your friends and contacts are free to talk before you call. Now you'll never get a busy signal or interrupt someone again.
  • Built-in dialer allows you to make all your calls directly with Truecaller.

"Truecaller has become a necessity for hundreds of millions of people in their daily communication by always knowing who's calling them and protecting them against spam calls. We are now taking this to the next level by changing the way people make phone calls with our integrated dialer and adding more context to your contacts that has never been seen before." said Alan Mamedi, Truecaller co-founder & CEO. "Now, you can completely replace your existing dialer and only use Truecaller for all your calls. We are also very pleased to see our OEM partners being so supportive of our mission."

In 2014, Truecaller launched Truedialer to bring similar improvements to the dialer, which had not evolved since the introduction of the smartphone. After overwhelming demand from users, Truecaller are now bringing many of the great features from Truedialer and integrating them into Truecaller, giving you full control your entire calling experience with just one app.

The latest update will begin rolling out to users on Android today, and will reach all users in the coming weeks. Existing Truedialer users will be gradually upgraded to the new Truecaller experience.
