Tech giant Google has blazoned that it’s rolling out a “suspected spam frequenter” marker to its telephone service Google Voice, which will advise users about spam calls.
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.
