Now you can filter spam calls using Google’s Phone app

15 Julio, 2018, 15:59 | Author: Misty Newman

Google has rolled out "caller ID and spam protection" on its Phone app with which the app itself would be able to filter out calls that it detects to be spam, eliminating all notifications and alerts for those calls as well.

The new features would work on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and above.

Google just gave us another good reason to use its phone app: better protection from spam callers. "To stop spam calls from ringing on your phone, turn on Filter suspected spam calls", the page reads further. After many rounds of testing, now the feature is readily available on the Phone app for all users.

If you want to turn on the feature, head into the phone's Settings - Caller ID & Spam, and then select the Caller ID & spam toggle.

In short, a user would not be notified about the spam calls arrived on his/her devices. Additionally, should the caller decide to leave a message in the voicemail, the receiver will still be able to access it. Naturally, you can disable it at any time if you don't trust that Google's app can really handle spam calls for you. Some apps, such as the popular Truecaller, have been around for a while to help users block this kind of unrequested contact, but some Android users can now benefit from this kind of filter without any additional software. If the option is showing up, tap Report call as spam, and then tap Block.
