PSA: Google Phone App Now Has Spam Call Filtering

Google’s proprietary replacement for the stock Android dialer app can now not only tell you when a call may be spam, but even block it without any input from you. This feature is not on by default, since some businesses’ legitimate calls can be filtered. Those who know that they won’t be engaging with any such businesses, however, can turn the feature on and expect to see no hint of any spam calls interrupting their day. Voicemails and call log entries from spammers will still come up, but the calls won’t cause any immediate interruption, and you won’t get the persistent voicemail notification unless you have voicemails in your inbox from unfiltered callers.

Google’s phone app has identified suspected spam callers for some time, and a number of other apps have a similar function. Even so, this is one of the simplest ways to implement a call blocker into your device, and gets you the other nifty features of Google’s dialer app as well. These features include things like video calls from right within the default dialer, a search function, and the ability to create default quick responses for when you’re busy, among a wide range of other features. Aside from that, it’s mostly similar to the AOSP dialer included with vaniall Android in most respects. Some phones come with Google’s version of the phone app by default, but most will need to grab it from the Play Store and enable it as the default dialer app.
