One of the most important features Truecaller was lacking was the ability to record calls. Now with the new update, users can record both incoming and outgoing calls. The feature is only available on Android as of yet.
What is Truecaller?
Truecaller is an all-in-one app for messages or making phone calls, but most importantly it can tell you the name of the person calling you from an anonymous number.
Whenever someone unknown makes a call on your phone Truecaller displays their name and location (if it’s saved on their servers). It even helps filter out blacklisted spam calls and lets you block anyone’s number as well.
How Does The New Call Recording Feature Works?
Every time you make a call the app would bring up a prompt asking you whether to record the call or not. Pressing Yes means that the call would be recorded and will be saved in the internal storage.
Unfortunately, the feature is only available for the premium version of the app, trial/non-premium users can use the call recording feature for 14 days.
Would Users Actually Buy It?
Considering the fact that there are a lot of apps that are already providing this feature for free, it would be pretty tough for Truecaller to sell this feature to its users. Sure you would have an all-in-one app solution with a better UI that won’t have ads or wouldn’t get laggy. However, it all boils down to whether or not a user is willing to pay for quality or they’re on for a free ride.
The premium version also lets users know who viewed their profile on Truecaller. They will also have a premium badge over their Truecaller ID to show off, will get contacts requests, and, as mentioned before, they will have an ad-free experience.
You can upgrade to premium for PKR 106 Monthly or PKR 900 for a Yearly Subscription.
