Google is gearing up to launch a new avatar of its Phone by Google that is touted as a reliable caller ID verification and authentication app which is similar to Truecaller. The firm has not revealed anything officially about the app, but few details about the app was spotted on its website and Reddit. The app will be called as Google Call and it will provide caller ID and spam protection.

The app will be launched soon on the Google Playstore very soon. There was also a YouTube ad about the app which has revealed the name and the logo of the Google Call app and the ad says that “lets you answer with confidence.” If Google launches this app, it will be a potent competitor in this sector and will give a tough competition to other Caller ID verification apps that are already available on Playstore.

Meanwhile, Google is rebranding its Google Phone app, and it has got new features like read out caller name and more. The Google Phone app is available for non-pixel phones too. Google’s research team is working on the new features as well as Goggle Call app. It is said that the firm will be making an official announcement very soon.
