New Delhi: Truecaller will soon launch a voice calling feature in its app, the company announced on Tuesday.
The feature is going to be for Android users first. The in-app voice over Internet protocol (VoIP)-based feature would let users make free, high quality, low latency and quick to connect audio calls through Wi-Fi or mobile data connectivity. Truecaller’s VoIP calling feature is now being rolled out in a staged manner and will soon be made available to all app users on the Android platform.
Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, the call directory app crossed 100 million daily users mark in India in February. The company attracts over 60% of its global user base from India alone.
“We see that half of the calls are calling other Truecaller users. For quick access to make free calls, the Truecaller Voice icon has been strategically integrated into convenient places within the app such as your call logs, SMS Inbox, contact profile and after call screen,” the company said in a post.
This will enable users to seamlessly access the VoIP based call anywhere within the Truecaller app without switching to other applications.
In an official press release, Truecaller has revealed that rollout of Truecaller Voice began on 10 June 2019 and it is currently underway in a phased manner.
“We are ecstatic with the launch of Truecaller Voice. We have been working towards building a full communication suite for our users and voice calling is the next big step in line with this mission,” said Rishit Jhunjhunwala, VP of product at Truecaller.
Users will not require a Trucaller Premium or Gold subscription to get the feature.
