    Full-screen caller ID

    The new caller ID also showcases colours to identify what type of call it is - calls from contacts and unknown numbers show up in blue, priority calls from businesses and delivery services will show up in purple, red is for spammers and gold for users who have upgraded Gold accounts.

    Smart SMS and Insights

    The Smart SMS on Truecaller uses advanced, on-device machine learning to automatically sort messages into four distinct groups: Personal, Important, Others and Spam.

    All financial and payment notifications go under the Important tab. You can choose to pay a transactional SMS straight from the app, or have Truecaller remind you later.

    Truecaller is going to include travel reminders like flight delays, bus seat allocations, live tracking and updates on postal/courier deliveries, tax updates and hospital/doctor appointments via future updates.
