Google's Phone App To Detect The Nature Of Business Calls

Soon You will Know why a random number is calling on Google's Phone app

The tech giant is developing a feature known as Verified Calls which will identify various anonymous spams and marketing calls. Not only that, but it is also possible to fall into identity theft as some telemarketing companies call to attract customers by posing as other businesses.

Google will turn on these settings for every user however if you like to stay mysterious, you can turn this feature off as well.

Verified Calls will be in the default configuration of the Google Phone app. This gives you the opportunity to decide whether or not to answer the call. Of course, flipping a coin doesn't really tell you anything about who is calling and why.

This feature is slightly different from call screening. Google will also display the logo of the business that is calling. First is the fact that Verified Calls relies on businesses proactively providing information to Google, meaning not all calls without the verified badge will necessarily be spam.


Google will soon let Android users know why a business is calling them through the Phone app.

Verified Searches feature a system that works instantly, according to Google's comments. After a company transfers search related information to Google servers, this information will be transferred to the user along with the search. This service will be carried out together with the companies that wish to be verified since it will be them who will have to provide the data to Google so that the telephone can consult the database and make sure that the number that calls matches one of the registered ones. However, there seems to be no way to disable this feature.

Calls from businesses are often annoying. Now Google has solved this issue for Android Users.

"When the business calls you, your device compares the incoming call information with the information Google received from the business".
