The maker of popular app Truecaller, True Software has rolled out its new ‘Truemessenger’ app, which is currently exclusive for Indian Android users. The app has been included at Google Play Store on Tuesday.
Like the other apps from the firm, the new Truemessenger is also a free app that requires a phone number to sign up. It verifies it by just sending a verification code by an SMS to the provided number.
The new app from the True Software enables the users to check their message inboxes like an ordinary messenger app in a new interface with the sender’s name and a profile photo. Meanwhile, the main considerable feature of the app is that it displays the name and relevant profile image, stored in the company’s database for the unsaved contact numbers also.
Users can distinguish between the saved and unsaved contacts by a ‘True badge’ which is located at the bottom of the picture.
Explaining. how Truemessenger is designed, True Software co-founder and CEO, Alan Mamedi said in a blog post that if people start receiving emails with the sender’s IP addresses, not name. And they haven’t an option to filter their emails from inbox to the spam box, it would be quite frustrating. So, therefore, he has unveiled its new app to provide a spam filter and sender details to the user.
Features of Truemessenger:
- SMS ID: Identify the sender, even contacts not in your phonebook
- Block SMS: Avoid messages from unwanted numbers and contacts
- Report Spam: Help the community outsmart common spammers by reporting them
- Clean Inbox: Automatically sends spam messages to a separate folder
- Advanced Filter Options: create customized filters with known spam keywords or number series (area codes or country codes)
The post further explained that the app takes the phone number and uses the power of 150 million ‘True Members’ of the True caller Community to provide the actual person behind the numbers.
Besides this, the new messenger is featured to split the ‘earlier inbox’ to INBOX and SPAM, provided a button at the bottom to switch between.
If messages from a sender are marked as spam, then they will not be shown in the user’s inbox anymore. To see the spam messages, users will have to switch to the spam box.
Other than spam filtering of the messages, users can also block an individual number, a series of number (e.g. everything starting with 9000) or block a name, so all messages from, say, XYZ AGENCY get blocked, regardless of which number the company is using.
The firm has designed the app in its standard blue colored theme with a minimalistic design. It also offers the users to quickly switch between the default messenger or Hangouts. The mobile phone users those who receive a lot of promotional and spam messages and those who haven’t enough time to manage their inboxes and save contact numbers, should have to try the app. It may be a blessing to them.
