Voice call support on Google Duo now rolling out for all
Truecaller knows that it is very popular in India and that is why when it introduced Truecaller 8, its updated version of the app, it has included two new features just for Indian users.
ICICI Bank, India's largest private sector bank by consolidated assets today announced its partnership with Truecaller, a leading Swedish communication company and India's third most used app to power a new UPI based mobile payment service. While so far, the service was only available for Android platform, TrueSDK will now become platform agnostic with its support for iOS and web platforms, making it easier for developers to create unified experiences across platform for their end users.
According to the pact with Bharti, the caller ID feature of Truecaller will be extended to Bharti's non-data users using feature phones. Additionally, the Truecaller app will now support flash messaging, which are basically pre-defined messages anyone can send to a friend or relative - they pop up on a smartphone's screen rather than arrive in an inbox.
Google video calling app integrated with Truecaller - Truecaller and Google Duo, Alphabet Inc's mobile video chat app, is forming a partnership. "Our aim is to make video calling simple, fast, and available to everyone", said Amit Fulay, Head of Duo at Google.
Truecaller has joined hands with Google to introduce video calling services besides a slew of new services. The updated Truecaller app will now have a new "Duo" icon along with "Call" and "SMS" icon in its dialer. This means that Android users will be able to send and receive money directly through the Truecaller app.
Now users can instantly see who is messaging them and filter out all spam messages.
If customers wish to transfer money through "Truecaller Pay", they have to do a one-time registration to create a new UPI id or have to add an existing ICICI Bank virtual payment address (VPA). It's supposed to send a flash SMS containing an unknown number's identity before a call hits a person's phone. The Truecaller Pay service is a part of the application's partnership with the ICICI bank in India and the app will make use of the UPI [Unified Payments Interface] platform for its functioning.
Stockholm-based Truecaller, backed by Sequoia Capital, Atomico and Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers, has more than 150 million users in India. We are thrilled to bring about one of the biggest transformation in the world of telecommunication with Airtel by truly bringing online experience of Truecaller in an offline environment. It has partnered with ICICI Bank to launch a peer-to-peer payment solution for the populace of the country.
