The only thing that is comparable with Google is Encyclopedia- where we find no dearth of information that too within a minute. All we need to do is type the info we need on the search engine, and Google is ready with the answer on the SERP, without opening different sites for the same.
Not just that, to give a better call experience to the Android phone users, Google introduced Google Phone App, which is incredible in many ways.
Some of the useful features include-
- Caller ID Facility- Getting a call from an unknown number? No worry! Google Phone app will inform you about the caller.
Even if you get a spam call, you will know about it. Under the flagship of “Suspected Spam Caller” you will be alerted.
To ensure you are taking full advantage of this facility-
Go to the settings> Select Caller ID and Spam> Activate it.
- Business Search integration-The search bar that you find on the top of the app is not just for searching a contact. You will also be able to find businesses around you so that you can call them immediately.
Just type the category or name you are looking for, you will find the list alongside the contact details. To give them a call just tap on the search result, and for additional information about the company press the left icon.
And now to activate it:
Settings> Nearby Places> Activate.
To include results from search history activate “Personalized search results”.
- Call- avoid facility-Are you pre-occupied with some other work? No time to receive a call from your friend who calls you too often. If you wish you can block them from but if you don’t want to be too harsh with them, ignore the call by tapping the tab in between call history and voicemail.
Enter the person’s name, and if the name is not in the contact list, then firstly add it, and then click on the “vertical ellipsis” that you find on the top right corner. Select “Route To Voicemail”.
- Call blocking facility-Though this feature is common nowadays, Google Phone app has this too.
If you wish to stay away from someone forever, you can do so with a few easy clicks. Just find the number whom you want to block from call record and then continue long-press on it till the time you get the “Block/ Report spam” option. Your work will be completed, within seconds.
To Wrap Up
Initially, Google Phone app facility was available only to Pixel and Nexus devices and other few android phones with whom they have partnered. But gradually Google has started unfurling its horizon support most of the Android Phones that are available in the market.
Very recently, Beta version of the app was released, in the Play store, but new pixel users will have it pre-installed on their phone. So they don’t need to install it once again. And for others who haven’t loaded this app yet, install it to avail its incredible features.
