Truecaller, Google tie up to improve video calling

Posted March 29, 2017

Google hasn't publicly announced an API to integrate Duo with third-party apps before now, but in the coming months Truecaller's Android and iOS app will sport a dedicated Duo button, letting Truecaller users access Duo's video-calling smarts without leaving the Truecaller app. This year, potentially, 60 million 4G feature phones will be sold in India.

Truecaller today announced its largest ever brand and product transformation. Airtel believes that this service will help feature phone owners in a massive way. Seeing a big opportunity, the company has announced a partnership with Airtel to identify callers on these phones. The deal will see Google's video calling app, launched in 2016, integrated with Truecaller, reports TechCrunch. As long as your bank supports UPI, you'll be able to use Truecaller to send money. The feature will work for users who have an ICICI Bank account, or are registered to use UPI-based payment solutions.
