Truecaller has announced a new version of their app, specially for Windows Phone 8.1 Lumia handsets.
As we wrote a few days ago, the app for the first time brings live Caller ID functionality to the Windows Phone 8 platform. Now, when Truecaller users are using a 3G or WiFi connection, live Caller ID will identify numbers from all over the world, even if it is beyond what is written in the user’s contact books.
The feature was developer in cooperation with Microsoft and the company commented:
“We are very happy to be able to support Truecaller in bringing this great functionality globally to Windows Phone for the first time. Our partnership goes back several years and we have seen that Truecaller is a very dedicated company focused on delivering a great service for its users,” says Mikael Stendahl, Head of Partner & Developer Relations at Microsoft.
Not only will Truecaller show the names of incoming calls that are not in your phonebook, but it will also notify you if one of those calls is a spam call reported by the 85-million user Truecaller Community.
To celebrate, when Windows Phone 8 Lumia users install or upgrade to Truecaller version 4.2 by October 30th, they will get 30 days of free Premium service. Premium service allows users of the free app to send contact info requests to users outside of their network.
