If you do not know what the hell is that ‘dialer’ , the explanation is very simple because it is that app that opens when you press the Phone icon
Many functions for a basic and important app, that Google is taking care of lately with important news and a Beta version available on Google Play , and that soon will receive more news, because the version of 22 of the Google Phone is already underway preparing to add the expected detection of unwanted calls and ‘spam’ in real time.
Google phone already detected ‘spam’, but now it will do so in real time …
To date, the Google phone dialer that is pre-installed on Nexus and Pixel devices, and that is available to everyone else in the Google Play Store for free , already detected advertising or ‘spam’ calls based on a prefixed database, although from now on you will be able to do it in real time thanks to a novelty in which Google has been working for a few weeks in AOSP.
How do you get it? As the new implementation will maintain the use of the database of ‘spammers’ , but also reinforce it using the real-time transcription of the phone call , to alert us that the call that is about to enter is made by a robot.
Here are the strings of code that would point to the new functionality , and that is already implemented in Google Phone v22:
The functionality can not be used yet since its development is incomplete, and for those who doubt that Google stores all their phone calls seeking to improve this service, it seems that the new “Call Screen” function can be used even without an Internet connection .
The strings indicate in fact that this audio and the transcripts are stored only in a local call history , something that will surely reassure the majority. Another improvement seems to be in the quick responses via SMS, which can also be sent to the numbers shown.
Undoubtedly a desired and more than expected functionality that will help us avoid the heavy calls of telemarketing services without having to expand our blacklist of blocked numbers to infinity.
