New Google Phone App features Spam Protection, Download APK



Android Phone Caller SPAM

Gone are the days when you used to get frequently disturbed by telemarketers. Though most of the Smart people out there are already using the Truecaller application, Google has now taken it onto themselves by blocking all the SPAM calls. To get this service onto your Android Smartphone, you will have to download the latest version of the Phone Dialer application. We have been looking forward to this solution by default on all the Android devices because those 5-second stupid calls make no sense and also distract us while at work.

Just head over to the Google Play Store and check if you have received the official update or else manually download phone app apk & install it onto your device. This will ensure that you are all set to stop these anonymous calls where some marketers try to sell something you are not interested in. The built-in spam protection should be good enough to inform you about the callers details & alert if it’s a suspected spam caller.

Interestingly google is pushing more and more useful features after the Android N Announcement, where we had recently seen them bringing the Twist your Phone to switch the rear & the front camera on the Google Camera Application. Do make a note that if you are using a Samsung Smartphone like the Galaxy S7 or even the LG G5 then you will mostly have to download the APK because most of the brands these days use their own customised apps and you will have to download the stock apps onto your phone manually.

The spam protection feature becomes available once you turn on the Caller ID option on the Phone app that you download & there are no additional settings required for the same. Whenever you receive a call, Google will match the caller’s number with the Local Business Listing and also through other directories to report you the number. You can also mark any recent call as Spam if it is not reported already to ensure this caller would not disturb you anymore. By the way, if you incorrectly mark some number as spam then you can report this mistake within the application to ensure other users don’t see that caller as a spammer. Overall an excellent initiative from Google considering that nor everyone downloads third-party apps or even are aware of apps that could block these kinds of calls on their phones.
