Google Voice is getting intelligent network switching to improve call quality. On the other hand, big updates that aren’t mostly for businesses are rare these days. Google Voice is introducing a Suspected spam caller label on the incoming call screen after adding Wi-Fi and cellular network switching.
The phrase suspected spam caller will display as the caller avatar on the call screen (below the number) and in the history list. End users may choose to:
- Confirm a suspected spam call that sends future calls from that number straight to voicemail. Entries in your call history to the spam folder.
- Mark a labeled call as not spam, and the suspected spam label for that number will never display again.
This label appears if Settings > Security > Filter spam is turned off. “All calls that Google identifies as spam are automatically sent to voicemail. In addition, the call entry is put into the spam folder,” states the setting if it is permitted.
As per Google, “the same advanced artificial intelligence that identifies billions of spam calls. Google’s calling ecosystem is making this determination often.”
Lastly, the “Suspected spam caller” warning for Google Voice is now available to all users and will begin rolling out. In the coming weeks, you’ll be able to access it in full.
