Truemessenger allows a user to put a name to a number, even for contacts outside their phonebook. The app also allows a user to detect, block, and report spam alongside other Truecaller members. Users can avoid messages from unwanted numbers and contacts and can also have a clean Inbox where spam messages are automatically sent to a separate folder.
Key features of Truemessenger:
- The ability to put a name to a number, even for contacts outside your phonebook.
- Users can detect, block, and report spam alongside other Truecaller members.
- The option to avoid messages from unwanted numbers and contacts.
- Spam messages are magically sent to a separate folder.
- Add advanced filtering options by creating customized filters with known spam keywords or number series (area codes or country codes).
“Truecaller identifies 900 calls a month and one in seven calls are spam. We are looking to provide the same experience in texts with the new Truemessenger app,” Truecaller India head Kari Krishnamurthy said.
How True messenger app works?
Like other SMS apps, True messenger shows you a list of all the messages you’ve received, and starts identifying the senders of messages – the people whose names are stored in your contacts app are displayed normally, while the unsaved numbers are also replaced in just a few moments by the names of senders, complete with pictures where available. The only distinguishing feature is a tiny “True” badge at the bottom corner of the picture.
