Google rolls out verified calls feature, here’s what it does

You can swap the feature off if you usually select up no matter of whether or not you know who's contacting - or in situation you have privateness fears. I'm happy to pick up the phone if my bank is calling to let me know about a problem with my account, for example, and this feature could be another way to help weed out marketing calls and other spam. You can then decide whether this is a call worth picking up or not. "If there's a match, the Phone app displays the call as a verified call", Google notes on a assistance webpage for the feature. In a new aid website page discovered by Android Law enforcement, the tech large goes into depth about a function referred to as "Verified Calls". It even allows showing the business logo on the screen so that it is known that the number really belongs to the company.

With "Verified Calls", before a company calls you it sends Google's dedicated "Verified Calls" server its phone number, your phone number, and the reason for the call.

There are multiple times in a day when repeated business-related calls and inquiries prove to be quite an annoying experience for you.

Whenever the business will call its consumer, the Phone app will cross-check information about the call with the servers, listing down the available data on the incoming call screen. To address the issue, Google is reportedly said to be working on a new Verified Calls feature for its Phone app that will soon inform on why you are receiving a call from an unknown number.

Verified Calls should take away some of that mystery. You can turn it off by opening the Phone app. From the settings menu, open the caller ID and spam section. You can do this by going to myaccount.google.com. You can add, delete, or change your phone number.

All the calls will go through Google's verified calls server, so some of the businesses that will participate will be able to share the info with users so that you will answer them.

With the support page up, the feature could be all ready to run. This program will allow businesses to verify their identities and display their names along with the goal of reaching out on the user's screen. Remember though, many phone manufacturers have their own dialer app.
