Popular communication app Truecaller has now launched a new feature called "Truecaller Backup" for Android devices. This new feature will now allow users to backup and restore their contacts, call history, block list and settings to Google Drive. According to the company, this new Trucaller backup option will help users in multiple cases like moving from an old smartphone to a new one, using new SIM cards, reset handsets, or even re-installing the app.
'Truecaller Backup' has been one of the most requested features by its users and will simplify a user's transition to a new phone or SIM card by securely backing-up their contacts and settings and stored on your Google Drive, the company said in a statement.
The new backup feature will be available on Android smartphones in the "next couple of days," Truecaller has said. However, the backup file will only be available for Google Drive users to start with but the feature will be expanded to other backup storage in future.
The company has said, "With just a click of a button, Truecaller will backup all your contacts, call history, call logs, block list and settings preferences to a file that will be stored on your Google Drive."Those users who do not have a Google Drive account will be notified to create one when the app is updated.
Users can also customize the frequency of backup between daily, weekly, monthly and on demand. The upgrade enables the recovery of any lost data from Google Drive which the app can restore to its last saved state.
Apart from this new feature, the developers behind the app have also introduced another feature dubbed as "Truecaller Contacts" for the users. As such this feature will enable users to search for contacts whose details have not been saved but they have previously communicated with. The feature contains all the contacts users have called or texted which makes it for them to recall and communicate with temporary contacts without saving them in their phone book.
So if you are using the app you now have two more added features which you can benefit from. Besides, Truecaller has been pretty active since last week and has been adding new features to its platform. Previously, the company announced the rollout of several new features like Simple Copy OTP and improvements to Flash messaging for Android devices.
