Android users can now be thankful to the Truecaller app for one more reason: the app has ushered in the feature to allow voice calls over WiFi and mobile data. While calling over the celluloid network was the only feature Truecaller had been allowing before, albeit with the ability to id the caller simultaneously, its latest feature will allow Android users to place calls even when the celluloid network is unavailable but an active WiFi connection is.
The latest feature brings Truecaller to par with other voice calling apps like Google Duo and WhatsApp, making it another prominent VoIP app. To place a call using the internet, users will have to open the Truecaller app, tap on the dialer to select the contact to be called, and select ‘Audio.’
The voice calling feature was quick to be released to the broader user base by the Truecaller app, having followed swiftly after formal testing on a smaller audience. Although iOS users still have to wait a while to avail of the features, most Android users can access it already; along with other prominent features allowed by Truecaller like peer-to-peer money transfer using UPI id, the ability to book transportation using apps like Ola or Redbus, recharging phone number or DTH connection, and sending text messages.
