Facebook introduces Hello app for caller ID and more

Facebook Hello


Facebook tells that they are now testing Hello, a new app created by its Messenger team. It connects with Facebook in order to see who’s calling, block unwanted calls, and search for people and places.

When you receive a call, Hello will show you information of the person who is calling you, as long as they have already shared it with you on Facebook.


In addition, you can call people and businesses on Facebook using the app.


In order to block unwanted calls, go to settings where you can block specific numbers and whether you want to automatically block calls from “commonly blocked numbers.” These blocked calls go straight to voicemail and can be accessed from your recent calls list.


Although Hello is still being tested, you can download it from this Play Store link. Lastly, here’s Facebook’s video on the app, if you’re interested.
