Sweden’s Truecaller, an online collaborative phone directory has unveiled a smart dialer app Truedialer for Android. The newly launched app offers relevant information about people a user wants to call and saves information to their phonebook for later use. Similar to its sister app, this too requires an active data connection.
Few months back, the app was launched for Windows phone 8 and recently got updated with real-time Caller ID features for Windows phone 8.1 users. Currently, it is available on Android and Windows phone.
Here is a video which shows how the app works:
As per a FoneArena
report, commenting on the launch of new app, Nami Zarringhalam, co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Truecaller, said, “With the same infrastructure that powers Truecaller, our ambition with Truedialer is to replace the phone’s phonebook app, and be invaluable to users, just as Truecaller has changed the way people receive calls and find contact information. Truedialer’s launch is a major milestone for the company from being focused on a single app. Users can expect Truedialer and Truecaller to complement each other to form the perfect phonebook experience.”
Apart from this, earlier this month, Truecaller has secured USD 60 million
Series C round at a valuation of USD 300 million led by Atomico, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB) and Sequoia Capital to hire new talents, develop products and for further expansion in new markets.
Last year, Truecaller had also announced a partnership with Twitter on its blog
that the partnership will begin in India, allowing Indian users to be able to see if a number is connected with a Twitter account, and have the ability to tweet or follow a person directly through the Truecaller app.
Around 85 million active users use Truecaller’s services to identify callers before answering. It also offers a subscription service to users of USD 1.99 per month to check who has viewed their profile and sending contact requests to people outside their network.
