Getting to know the caller on your phone has become a common sight these days thanks to Truecaller application. All one needs to do is, sign in to their Google or Facebook ID and get details on whosoever is calling them, be it a known person or anonymous. It’s been available as an app for now, but from here on, major phone brands are eyeing the product as an in-built native dialer option.
According to media reports, Xiaomi, the makers of phones like Redmi 1S, Mi 3 are interested in taking Truecaller on board their devices. This development has been shared by Hugo Barra, quoted in an exclusive report recently. “Truecaller is a special kind of app. Nobody will let them replace the native dialer with their product. We are going to partner with them and integrate their dialer directly into our dialer. The result would be a native dialer that is much smarter,” as said by Barra.
The company is looking to change the way a start up functions and with experienced heads like Barra, things are moving in the intuitive direction. “We want to build an Internet platform that is delivered through these devices. We plan to partner with a whole lot of companies and build layers of services into the operating system,” he added.
Over the years, applications have well and truly taken over the mobility ecosystem. First, you had the likes of WhatsApp replacing traditional SMS usage. Then, social platforms taking over your communication channels and more is expected to evolve in the coming years. We’d like more brands joining the ranks of Xiaomi in taking software innovation on devices to the next level.
