Google Phone app to get Caller ID announcement and a couple of new features soon
Reportedly the Google Phone app will soon get a Caller ID announcement feature, which, if enabled, will read out the called name or number, so you can easily know who’s calling you before your look at your screen. Another useful feature the app will reportedly be getting is the possibility to delete older Call Screen recordings and transcripts automatically after 30 days.
The Call Screen recordings and transcripts feature is only available for users in the US and in Canada right now, but the option to automatically delete these recordings can be helpful for people who rely on it a lot.
Additionally, the Phone app will also get a “Saved voicemails” shortcut to let users quickly and more easily locate their saved voicemails.
