Truecaller tops 250 Mn users
Popular caller-identification service Truecaller has amassed 250 Mn monthly active users and 200 Mn daily active users, demonstrating an accelerated pace of growth in recent quarters, even as a global pandemic has hurt most businesses, it said on Wednesday.
The service, run by the eponymous Stockholm-headquartered firm, allows users to avoid spam calls by identifying the callers, and also filters similar texts. The service is popular in many parts of the world, but India, where everyone receives dozens of such calls each month, is Truecaller’s biggest market.
Even as Apple and Google have improved the caller ID feature in their mobile operating systems in recent years, and taken several other steps to curb spam calls, Truecaller’s offerings remain unmatched.
Truecaller had 200 million monthly active users in February this year, and it reached the 100 million daily active users milestone in April 2018. More than 185 million of its monthly active user base are in India.
