Google rolls out caller ID and spam protection on its Phone app

Check out the new update too and let's know what you think about it.

Open your device's Phone app phone.

When one turns on the incognito mode on the YouTube app, it means the videos that you watch when you've gone incognito will not be saved, leaves no trace and won't affect your suggestions whatsoever. These spam calls are some of the most annoying things ever, but fortunately, Google has some new features to help you deal with it through its Phone app.

If the caller does leave a voicemail, you also won't get a notification, though you'll have the ability to view missed calls and voicemails that have been "filtered".

Turn Caller ID & spam on or off. Caller ID will identify the company or service that is calling a user if they have a Google My Business listing.

Rebic has caught Mourinho's eye playing on the opposite side to Perisic and is thought to be valued at around £44m. Manchester United's Alexis Sanchez during the match against Chelsea, Wembley Stadium, London, May 19, 2018.

This is something which we believe many would love to have and you can enjoy it now through updating the YouTube application on your Android-powered phone.

Previously the Phone app alerted users to suspected spam calls by displaying a red background when the call came in.

Making life easier for you, Google's Phone app will start blocking out unwanted calls on its own. Once you turn off the incognito mode, YouTube will automatically switch to the account last used.

Google's Phone app can now automatically detects the spam calls and send them directly to voicemail.

Go to Recent calls Recents. Otherwise, you can just tap Block here, which is what I've been doing to good ol' Ann when she calls to kick her straight to voicemail. With that, you can always decide if you want Google to handle your spam call detections and stoppages or not. "You can now block numbers to prevent unwanted calls".
