Truecaller Now has an AI Capability that Blocks Spam

By Consultants Review Team Wednesday, 20 March 2024

The well-known caller ID and spam-blocking software truecaller has included AI spam filtering as a new feature. The feature's explanation suffices. Its goal is to stop spam calls. With the new 'Max' protection layer, spam calls are immediately blocked and it's only accessible on the Truecaller Android app. But this premium function is only available to app users who have paid for it. Everything you require is provided here.

Truecaller users can access the AI spam-blocking tool by going to Settings > Block in the app. Previously, paying customers had two options for this setting: Off and Basic. With Off, users could detect spam callers without blocking them, and with Basic, they could automatically stop calls that were flagged as spam by numerous users. Now that the Max tier has been introduced, customers can choose to impose strict spam-blocking policies.

When the Max option is chosen, Truecaller will use sophisticated artificial intelligence algorithms to detect and reduce spam numbers in order to proactively reject calls from any known spammers. According to Tech Crunch, Kunal Dua, Vice President of Search at Truecaller, the business has evaluated many algorithms in a variety of marketplaces to guarantee the efficacy of the spam filtering tool.

Although the Max spam filtering tool protects customers from unsolicited calls, the firm warns users that it may also unintentionally block genuine calls. But in order to lessen these instances, Truecaller guarantees consumers of continuous improvements and modifications based on user feedback.

It's crucial to remember that iOS limitations prevent caller ID applications from automatically banning spam numbers, therefore Truecaller's Android app is the only one with the AI-powered Max spam filtering function. Users would need to subscribe to Truecaller's Premium plan, which starts at Rs 75 per month and Rs 529 yearly in India, in order to enjoy this service.

The firm introduced AI-Powered Call Recording services for users in India a few weeks prior to the release of this new product. Both the iOS and Android operating systems support it. With the help of this function, users can conveniently and effectively record and manage critical conversations by recording both incoming and outgoing calls straight within the Truecaller app.
