Truecaller, a popular mobile director app, has inked a deal with Microsoft to offer Live Caller ID Lookup feature on Lumia smartphones. This feature will allow users to identify the unknown numbers during incoming calls.
Microsoft announced that it will be giving all the premium features of Truecallers to all the new Lumia smartphones users. “We are very happy to be able to support Truecaller in bringing this great functionality globally to Windows Phone for the first time,” said Navdeep Manaktala, Head of Applications & Developer Ecosystem at Microsoft Mobile Devices & Services.
The addition of Live Caller ID Lookup feature comes with the v4.2 update of the app. However only devices running on Windows Phone 8.1 with Lumia Cyan will be able to enjoy this feature.
“Microsoft devices are used by millions across the globe and the openness of the platform allowed us to create something exclusively for its users. We are delighted to be associated with Microsoft yet again, and be able to provide the unique Live Caller ID Lookup feature to the users. Truecaller is a widely used app and with this unique service our endeavor is to take Microsoft Device users’ experience to the next level,” said Nami Zarringhalam, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Truecaller.
