One week ago Gadgets 360 exclusively reported about Dialer, a voice-calling app for Android which Microsoft is recently testing in India, and plans to launch in the country later this year. Gadgets 360 has learnt more details about the app that we can now share with our readers.
That’s just one of its features. Dialer has been developed by Skype team. It is a voice-calling app that allows users to talk to each other on slower networks (3G as well as 2G).
Dialer offers users Truecaller-like real-time information about the caller and provides users a quick option to block spam callers. While Truecaller uses throng sourced data to power its database, it’s not clear at this point where Microsoft is sourcing this information.
As well as made and cellular calls with the app. We’ve got our hands on a test build of the Microsoft Dialer app for Android and tested calling other app users.
The company plans to release Dialer in the second week of December, though the time-frame could later be changed if the testing process takes longer. A public beta of the app is expected to go live next month. The company also plans to launch a Windows Phone client of Dialer early next year. It is worth pointing out that Microsoft currently updated the phone app on Windows 10 Mobile developer preview to add Skype integration.
