The marker will help cover users from unwanted calls and potentially dangerous swindles, the tech mammoth said in a Workspace Updates blog post on Thursday.
Google Voice To Warn About Spam Calls With A Big Red Warning Sign
The new marker will appear on the incoming call screen and in the users ’ call history. “ The company makes this determination using the same advanced artificial intelligence( AI) that identifies billions of spam calls each month across Google’s calling ecosystem, ” Google said.
Users have the option to confirm the suspected spam call, by which future calls from that number will go directly to voicemail or they can “ mark a labelled call as not spam, after which the suspected spam marker is noway displayed for that number again. ”
This point doesn’t have admin control and is available to all Google Voice users.
Meanwhile, last week, with an end to give a better calling experience, the tech mammoth had rolled out a new ‘ intelligent network switching ’ point to Google Voice, which will automatically switch ongoing calls between cellular data service and Wi- Fi.
