Truecaller Live Caller ID Now Available For Premium Subscribers On iPhones

New Delhi: Leading caller identification app Truecaller on Wednesday said its Live Caller ID is now available for premium customers on iPhone globally, including in India for the first time.

The service uses a simple Siri Shortcut on the iPhone to tell the user who is calling.

Rishit Jhunjhunwala, Managing Director, India, Truecaller said, “We are seeing strong adoption on iPhone and we are constantly innovating within the platform. Our team applied a lot of creativity to create this Siri powered live caller ID experience ”

To set up this feature, the user needs to go to the Premium tab within the app and click on Add to Siri.

Thereafter, whenever you have an incoming call, just say ‘Hey Siri, search Truecaller’ and it will instantly tell you who is calling.

The app will then quickly capture the number, get more information about the caller and present it at the top of the calling screen.

“This new feature is available to Truecaller premium customers on iOS 16 and newer devices. It leverages Siri Shortcuts and App Intents to deliver fast and accurate results within seconds,” the company said.

Live Caller ID with Siri searches the entire Truecaller database, providing information of the same quality as Truecaller on Android.

Truecaller has also enhanced its spam detection capabilities to better identify and protect users from spam calls.

Premium subscribers will receive automatic updates to the spam list, while free users can manually update the spam list to ensure optimal, secure and efficient communication.

The update also allows users to view and add comments on numbers marked as spam.

“Now, incoming SMS messages will be automatically categorized into Finance, Orders, Reminders, Coupons, Offers and Junk. This feature is now live in India, South Africa and Nigeria for iOS 16 and newer and coming soon to other countries will be launched in India,” the company said.

Truecaller has over 338 million active users globally, with over a billion downloads since launch.
