Google Phone App will Filter Spam Calls Without Bothering You


Google Phone is the default dialer app for Pixels, Nexus and Android One devices. The app is adding spam filtering feature with a new beta program.

Back in 2016, Google Phone began alerting users to potential spam callers by flashing the incoming call screen bright red, with another “Suspected spam caller” alert just underneath the phone number.

This new spam detecting feature will not even bother you. When a potential spam call is detected, it will be sent straight to voicemail. As such, the phone will not ring and you won’t be interrupted.

Users will not receive a missed call or voicemail notification, though filtered calls will appear in call history and any voicemails left will still show up in that respective tab.

You can join the beta program to have initial access to this feature. To do that, Head to the Google Play listing for the Phone app and scroll down to “Become a tester” in order to join.

This feature will roll out the other users in the coming weeks.
