In order to install the Google Phone app on your smartphone, you need to first enroll for the beta program by visiting this link. It is worth noting that you need to visit this link on your computer – otherwise it might not work for you. Once you are a part of the beta testing program, you need to install the app on your smartphone. Once again, you will need to do that on your desktop.

To download the app on your device, visit this link on your computer. Also, make sure that you are using the same Google account. It is generally hard to find the Phone app on the Play Store app. It is worth mentioning that the app is currently in the beta stage meaning you might encounter some troubles or bugs along the way.

Not every feature is available!

As mentioned earlier, the Google Phone app comes with a bunch of useful features such as Call Screening and Verified Calls. While these features work flawlessly on Pixel devices, that’s not the case for other devices. In fact, the beta version which you have just installed on your device will completely lack these useful additions. Considering the app is now working on more devices, the company might bring the support soon.

To recall, the Call Screening feature informs the user of whether you are receiving the spam call or not. It’s quite a useful integration considering the number of spam calls people receive nowadays. The Verified Calls, on the other hand, verified the identity of the business when they call you. Furthermore, it also tells you why a particular business is calling you. This allows users to make an informed decision of whether to pick the call or not.
