Truecaller announces that it has surpassed 100 million users globally, and has doubled its daily new users in less than 3 months. The service helps users identifying unknown numbers, block unwanted calls, and search contact information among people and businesses. In addition to the surge in the user base, Truecaller also receives more than 1.5 billion search requests per month.
The team also announced the launch of the new Truecaller on Google Play. The new update focuses on predictive style features, which suggests who to contact based on call history, time of day, and place, making it convenient, so you never have to leave the app to find the right contact information.
Truecaller aims to solve a huge pain point for billions of consumers who use their phonebook on a daily basis, but often need to go outside of their app to find useful information they need. Similar to how Google has been able to combine information and intelligence, Truecaller uses its proprietary search technology and social graph, and combines it with hundreds of different sources such as Yelp! and social networks to create a smarter way for users to access current information across all social channels, platforms and devices.
The app has been fully redesigned to provide easier discovery and simpler navigation, and rebuilt to make it much lighter in terms memory consumption.
