Truecaller will now come integrated in Cyanogen OS ROMs

Caller ID is quite the ‘in’ thing now. Facebook’s doing it, so are a lot of other companies; but the biggest name perhaps in the caller ID space, at least on Android, remains to be Truecaller.

In a recent development, it was learnt that Cyanogen OS would now come baked with Truecaller integration. If you haven’t used Truecaller, let me tell you what it means.¬†It¬†means you’ll be seeing in a little window the name of the person who’s trying to call you, despite not having saved the contact info of the caller.

From personal experience, I can confirm Truecaller works pretty well, but at an expense. It can give you a bit of a privacy scare if not used with caution. What is cool though is the fact that you will be presented with an option of opting out of the service once your phone is up and running.

Not only will this update reflect on ‘fresh’ Cyanogen OS installs, but existing users of the community-turned-commercial OS will also be getting the feature in the coming months.¬†Truecaller does have a freemium model, so this is perhaps a way both companies are looking to generate some extra revenue.

        To the point where you upload your phone list to TrueCaller without asking permission to the people on your phone list to be part and having their names displayed publicly.

    The caller ID is one of my favorite features on MIUI 6, especially when I am spending time in the US with all their telemarketers.
