With this announcement, the developers of this utility have also showcased some new features that have made their way into this application’s Android version. A new way to search for numbers has emerged, with the main search bar now being able to work in real-time to display the relevant information based on names or numbers you enter. It will of course look through Truecaller’s massive 1.5 billion-strong database, apart from your own contacts list.

Truecaller has been given powers to make it your default calling app as well. Once you open it, it displays suggested contacts based on time of the day, the location you’re currently at and other such factors. Moreover, you can even swipe left or right in order to send a text to them or call them, respectively.

Although the new features have only been doled out for the Android version of Truecaller as of now, they will indeed be made available on other platforms in the future. The updated app is live now on the Google Play store.
