Facebook launches Hello, the smart dialer for Android

Phone calls can be a pain, especially if you don't have the number stored and don't know who is calling you. Facebook is making your dialer and caller-ID even smarter with their latest app, Hello. With Hello you will be able to see who is calling, whether you have the number saved or not, as well as block unwanted calls based on numbers others have blocked, and much more. Sure, every Android device has a stock dialer built-in, but additional features are always great to have.

Some features that Hello offers are:

  • See who's calling you, even if you don't have that phone number saved in your phone.
  • Easily block unwanted calls.
  • Automatically block calls from numbers that have been blocked by a lot of other people.
  • Search your phone contacts and people and places on Facebook, without switching between apps.
  • Always have the latest info about your contacts, including their profile pictures and birthdays.
  • Open a Facebook profile or Page with just one tap.
  • Call and text for free with Messenger.
  • Call, add and edit contacts — just like you do on your phone.

Hello is available now as a free download from Google Play.
