Earlier this month, we saw Truecaller testing its VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) calling service in India for its premium subscribers. The VoIP feature of Truecaller would work similar to how other apps use this feature, it would allow the users to make a phone call over the internet (through mobile data or Wi-Fi network) regardless the telecom network availability or balance. The VoIP feature uses the internet itself to make the phone call. And in the recent development, Truecaller has officially announced the app’s VoIP calling feature which will be called – Truecaller Voice.
Truecaller has placed a Truecaller Voice button in the app which can be used by the user to make the voice calls through internet, using either mobile data or Wi-Fi. But, it should be noted that Truecaller Voice doesn’t call the phone of the receiver directly as it places the call in the app itself, so the receiver also must have the application installed in his smartphone. Currently, Truecaller is rolling out its VoIP feature with a new update, which will come to the smartphones in a staged way. The Truecaller Voice feature is currently being rolled out for the Android version only.
Truecaller has assured that by using the Truecaller Voice, the users can make free, high-quality, low latency VoIP calls, which will be connected quickly over mobile data or Wi-Fi. For the convenience of the users, the company has also added a shortcut to the Truecaller Voice to the in-app locations such as call logs, SMS Inbox, contact profile along with after call screen.
It should be noted that Truecaller’s VoIP calling feature was spotted last week. but earlier it was thought that it would be coming for the Truecaller Premium subscribers only. But now, it appears as if the Truecaller Voice feature will be brought to all the Android users of the app regardless of Premium or non-Premium tags. According to the official press release about the new update, Truecaller stated that the Truecaller Voice feature equipped new update has been rolling out since June 10, 2019. It will soon reach all the users of the application as it is being rolled out in a phased manner.
To get the new feature, the users would simply need to head over to Google Play Store and update their Truecaller app. Once updated to the latest version, they should be able to see the Truecaller Voice feature on the calling screen of the app. But if they don’t see it then the update hasn’t reached them as yet and they would have to wait for a few days. And as mentioned above, the Truecaller Voice feature is not just coming to the Premium or the Premium Gold subscribers of the app but for all the Android users who have this app installed.
