Truecaller (www.Truecaller.com), the world’s most trusted and accurate Caller ID and telephone search engine says it has launched a new SMS app that will provide users with essential contents on their messaging app.
In a press statement obtained by Heritage Times, Truecaller said the new app not only protect users from scammers but caters to the evolving needs of consumers, making day to day communication easier and convenient for users to keep track of their expenses.
The Director of Business Development & Partnerships at Truecaller Africa, Zakaria Abdulkadir Hersi, said the new features added into the smart SMS app will be useful for user to engage more effectively.
According to him: “Roughly 80 per cent of SMSes one receives daily are from businesses, disengaging users from important/useful messages. To combat that, SMS apps need to become smarter by filtering out spam and categorising useful information,” Mr Hersi said.
“At Truecaller, we constantly strive to offer the best user experience by adding unique features that fit in with our core mission: to make communication safer and more efficient for everyone.
“Truecaller has evolved into a powerful communication hub and for the people who wish to use the app to its fullest, we want to streamline the experience as much as possible for an efficient calling and messaging experience for our end user,” he added.
The statement went on to note that the messaging app feature also offers a Smart Inbox that identifies unknown SMS sender numbers and SMS sender IDs are resolved to business names with logos.
It conveyed the assurance of Truecaller company that with the SMS intelligence built into the app, one can access the app both online and offline, while all content on the device remains.
