One of the best Andriod features is call screening tech but it is only available to pixel phones. Now in a press release yesterday, Motorola Moto G7 family which includes Moto G7 Power, Moto G7 Play, and Moto G7 Plus, and the Motorola One family are receiving the feature as part of Google’s recently announced Digital Wellbeing expansion.
Call screening feature was first launched on pixel 3 and later it expanded to original pixel and Pixel devices. It uses the software to automate the answering of the call and gathers information about who’s calling and why. You can start the feature by pressing the screen call button when you see an unrecognized call and then you are displayed with the information onscreen both in real time and in the form of a transcript afterward.
The feature is designed to tackle robocalls, last year The Federal Trade Commission claims that they received around 500,000 complaints per months related to automated calls and texts, therefore, Americans suffered a record 26.3 billion spam calls. Currently, Google, other large telecoms and internet providers working to reduce the number of automated calls and spam texts.
Also, AT&T, Comcast, T-Mobile, and Verizon have all either announced a service for identifying and blocking spam calls or, in Verizon and T-Mobile’s case, have already released free services to do just that. As for now, it is not clear what else can users expect from the new feature, call screening feature will arrive with the latest update of Motorola. Last November, Digital well being beta become available for a wide array of Andriod phones.
Motorola is the first phone to gain success with Andriod call screen feature, beta in Canada as the first international market for the feature. Meanwhile, Nokia has not made an announcement yet about this feature coming to its device. Call Screen is available in U.S. English and entered testing in Canada last month.
