Called Truecaller Auto-Search, the feature lets Android app users identify an unknown number by just copying it - associated information will then be automatically searched for, and a notification will be displayed to the user. The company claims that users can 'auto-search' for an unknown number seen on a website, mail or even message by just copying the number.
Essentially, the Truecaller app now checks whenever a number is copied onto the Android smartphone's clipboard, from any app, such as Gmail, Messaging, or a Web browser.
Announcing the new update, Truecaller said on its blog, "Identifying a number has never been so fast, and frictionless. Android users now can be browsing anywhere on their phone, copy a phone number, and Truecaller will instantly try to identify the number and give easy access to calling or texting."
The updated Truecaller app for Android is now available for download and brings other new features such as the addition of Nepalese language support, as well as bug fixes and general speed improvements. With the new update, users can tap on the search box of the app to search for contacts in the phonebook or in Truecaller. Unfortunately, the company has not revealed when the Auto-Search feature will be rolling out to iOS users.
Truecaller earlier this month revamped its Android app to version 2.0 with support for dual-SIM devices. The popular Truecaller app back in December announced it crossed the 100 million user milestone, with the company claiming that it had doubled daily new users in less than 3 months.
