Truecaller messenger for Android – Now you can block spam SMS
Hope all of us know about Truecaller app which is widely used for Mobile caller identification . Leveraging on the success of the app and the popularity, Truecaller has released another app ‘Truemessenger‘ that will help fight a similar cause that the Truecaller app came into existence – this time around it will be to fight spam messages. Recently, Truecaller also announced ‘Truedialer’ that magically identifies unknown numbers in your call history and add names for them.
About 8 trillion text messages are shared across the world per year and as much as 15% of them are junk / spam messages that arrive at the user’s message inbox, either leave them frustrated or tearing their hair off wondering where the hell did the senders get their number from. I for instance on an average receive 20 spam text messages per day and tried many different methods and apps to get rid of them but all the efforts did precious little to turn things around.
This is where Truecaller’s worldwide community of a whooping 150 million members can bring in value. Once you have installed the Truemessenger app, it allows you to assign a name/identifier to the numbers that are not a part of your contacts / phonebook. This way you can flag them as spam. What it does next is to move all the flagged messages to a dedicated SPAM folder which you can later review and either delete or retain (if something was flagged as spam unintentionally). Just like the Truecaller that makes use of the information provided by the vast community, Truemessenger too does something similar by gathering information from its database and helps you identify the spams from the useful messages thus dodging off the messages from senders whom you simply do not want to hear from, just like you did for the calling!
