Today, Truecaller unveiled Truemessenger, a new way of experiencing SMS on your Android phone, to change the way we communicate.
Truemessenger makes SMS safer and adds context to your conversations, by allowing you to put a name to a number on your SMS messages and automatically filter out spam.
Launching exclusively today in India, Truemessenger is designed as an SMS replacement app, with an automated spam filter powered by 150 Million Truecaller community members worldwide.
With the increasing amount of SMS spam, and unknown messages sent to private mobile phone numbers, Truemessenger puts you in control of who you communicate with and keeps your inbox clean and free from unwanted messages.
The spam SMS account for 15% of all SMS messages sent globally, and represents 1.2 trillion spam messages each year.
Truemessenger leads the way to an organized inbox where you can always put a name to a number, block and filter spam SMS messages seamlessly.
"Today's messaging apps are under constant attack from spammers and surrounded by uncertainty, but when we communicate via email for instance, our email app shows you the sender's name and filters out spam messages for you, but SMS has lacked these essential components - until today," said Alan Mamedi, CEO & co-founder of Truecaller.
He added, "With Truemessenger we've reimagined the SMS app experience by making it more social and putting control back into the users' hands so they always know who they are communicating with."
Further he added, "We know that spam calls and SMS are a major source of frustration for our users globally, and our users in India have been especially vocal in asking for a solution to this problem. Today, we begin our launch in India and are really excited to be able to offer Truemessenger into the Indian market to protect our users from spam, and help to streamline their communications. We look forward to subsequent launches globally in the near future."
