Today, Truecaller, a search technology company from Stockholm, Sweden, announced a partnership with Cyanogen Inc. to make its Truecaller dial pad app the default on Cyanogen OS. The app features spam blocking and caller ID (even for unknown callers in live calls and call history).
Dave Herman, VP of Product Development at Cyanogen Inc., stated about the company and its app,
“Truecaller shares our vision of enabling an open platform that gives users ultimate choice in their core app experiences. The new integrated dialer experience is a seamless, frictionless way for users to screen calls and block unwanted spam without ever leaving the native dialer.”
Newly shipped devices running Cyanogen OS will have Truecaller’s services already integrated. For other, existing devices, an over-the-air update will be released in a few months.
For those who are running Android or do not want to purchase a new Cyanogen OS-based device or wait for the update, you can check out the widget for Truecaller below.
