Edit the chat message sents: With this feature, users will be able to edit/make changes to the chat message even after the recipient has viewed it. If a message is modified, the recipient will see ‘Chat (modified)’. Users can edit chat messages at any time after sending a message. It is worth mentioning that this new editing feature is only available for Truecaller Chat, not for SMS.
Set default launch screen: Following the update, Truecaller users will now be able to choose the app’s default appearance when first launched. With a simple long press on the Calls or Messages tab, it can be set as the default view. The next time the app is opened, it will open by default.
Smart SMS experience: This new feature on Truecaller allows users to keep messages organized, something similar to SMS organizer. It has the visibility of all the important messages which will become much easier with smart filters such as transactions, deliveries, trips, invoices, etc. chronologically, thus ensuring that discovering all important messages will become much easier so that users don’t have to go in and out of different SMS threads to read each new SMS. You can also filter by top senders’.
