Launched in 2009, Truecaller allows users to be notified before a call rings up, while also allowing people to see if the call is from a spam number.
The call identification app caters to 300-million monthly active users, with 73 percent of its users being in India, where it keeps releasing newer features to retain its userbase.
Last week, Truecaller launched a ‘government directory’ feature in India to allow Indians to connect with verified government officials.
In order to keep in line with Google’s PlayStore policies, the platform recently pulled-back its ‘call record’ feature.
Truecaller, which presently shows the names of unsaved numbers as saved by crowd sources, may soon have to change this feature to be in alignment with expected amended rules in India.
India’s telecom regulator, the TRAI, has asked the public to submit suggestions on whether these caller ID apps like Truecaller must display the actual, SIM-registered names of the callers in the coming days.
The public comments on the paper can be submitted to the regulator by December 27, while the deadline for counter comments is till January 10, 2023.
