If you use the Google Phone app, you’ll soon be able to find out why a business is calling before you even pick up the phone. In a new help page discovered by Android Police, the tech giant, discusses in detail a feature called “Verified Calls”. Businesses who choose to go through and pass the Google verification process will be able to send their dedicated phone number, phone number, and reason for their call to the dedicated server for verified calls, such as “Plan your Internet installation” or “Your delivery.” of food”. Google will then display all of this information on your Phone app.

The feature is enabled by default, but it will not work if you have not added your phone number to your Google Account. It also won’t work if you don’t have the Google Phone app, which is still not compatible with many Android devices, including Samsung phones. You can turn off the feature if you still pick up the phone, whether or not you know who’s calling, or if there is a privacy issue. Google says that the feature does not “collect or store any personally identifiable information after verification”, and that the company will delete your phone number and the reason for the call from the verified call server within minutes of the verification.
