To make the highest quality one-to-one video call, simply tap from the call log, search, or contacts card. Easily switch a voice call to a Duo video call with Google Duo installed and activated.
See warnings about potential spam callers and report suspicious calls to help protect the community from telemarketers, fraudsters, and spammers.
Know who’s calling before you pick up, with business names now visible on the call screen along with their number.
Get the calls you want, and not the ones you don’t. You can now block numbers to prevent unwanted calls.
Check your messages without having to call voicemail – view, playback and delete them right from the Phone app and download the audio to your device.
No more switching apps or cumbersome copy and paste. Just find and call places right from the search bar in the Phone app.
MINI CALL VIEW
Switching from a call shrinks the call screen so it can be moved while multitasking in other apps.
Okay. First of all the colour scheme looks decent and minimalist which I love. The only problem is the accent colour that has been given which seems little childish. Personally am enjoying this new theme but as many suggests there should be an option to switch between dark and light mode and the accent colours which is provided should be improved.
Love the spam blocking, and ability to search for contacts (and places that aren’t saved in my phone). But, the new color scheme is terrible! The pastel colors, full of pinks and purples and light blues (a lot of Easter colors) makes my contact list look way too girly. And, there’s no option to change it. Google, please add different color options and you’ll get 5 stars from me!
I don’t know why everyone is moaning about the new redesign. I personally think it’s cleaner and I’m glad to get rid of that horrible blue. They do need to add some customisation options so everyone can choose what they would prefer.
I use “Infinix note 5” (android one with Android 8.1) and when I got it, I liked the card/tiled Interface used to distinguish one contact or log from the other. It also gave me green background for SIM 1 and Blue background for SIM 2 during calls. However I noticed recently that it’s all while background and the card/tile Interface is gone. Please google revert to the older interface and add the option to change colour schemes manually including all black with white fonts or use launcher theme to colour match things. Not liking this white background at all. Feels like a “Notepad app”. Also add call recording too as well as ability to swipe between call log and phone book. Thank you
Calling screen is not good.. and the picture that i put in my contact is just showing small round size… And call screening background changing option is not available.. please fix all this things in next update
I love this app, it’s easy to use and simple. But the new color scheme is horrible… The white background is great, but the new colors for contacts and favorites are too soft. I liked Google’s bright and colorful app better, why didn’t you just change the background to white?
Problem since long, when we want to search recent dial number from recent tab it won’t give result although it only allow to search the stored contact and place. The app should allow to search non stored number for which we have made recent calls.
I have never hated an update so much, please make the horrible pastel colors go away! The white is hard on the eyes. It’s like the free theme for a cheap messaging app. Who in the design team said “I want to make my dialer and call history look like Necco Wafers”?
Was wondering why did my phone changed its look when I read it got an update. I like how minimalistic it is, but I wish there were other color options besides a dark mode. Going to miss the fact that you can see your phone wallpaper through a translucent blue bg from the previous update during a call, tho. Wish that carried over to this update.
The app looks good and all the provided features work flawless. But I dearly miss features like swiping left and right to switch between tabs like recent, favourite and contacts. Also, swiping a contact from left to right to call them and right to left to text them would be very handy
Agree with new scheme is way too much white. Not sure why the number 1 needs to be added to every phone number then I can edit it away. Tough to edit contact info from call history. If you tap the name it calls the contact and does not give you options to open the contact.
It was good and easy to use. But Since last update the new theme is just horrible and seems akward. All white background seems that by mistake they have given rejected theme as update. Old one is far more better 😊😊😊. “Make the calling screen more attractive. while calling give options like 1. For call pick up 2. For rejecting and 3. For message. And work over calling screen background “
Bring back the scroll option to easily navigate between favorites and log etc. Why is it that we need to manually press the icon to navigate? Why do you make things complicated? Also the white color theme, it sucks. You should have directly brought the dark mode. We would appreciate that even if you didn’t bring this stupid eye hurting white theme.
Hi, overall app looks good. I am using dual SIM mobile.one of the existing functionalilty has been broken. Sim 1 and sim 2 color is not working while receiving are dialling a call. Pls check. Thanks
Everything about the app is minimalist. UI is clean, and it’s also coming in dark mode. I’ve a request to the dev team to add vibration when the call is received or after the call ends. If it’s already available please guide me through.
The obvious has been said, about the pastel colors & white background, but you say dark mode coming soon. I hope so… One thing not said & its very important to me, is there’s no speed dial. I wanna just long press numbers 2-9 & assigned contact to each number, speed dial. I have yet to find it, so…
New issue in recent months: select speakerphone and it goes back to phone speaker (no longer speakerphone) as soon as you switch to another app. So, you can no longer hear the caller and they can’t hear you. Have to switch the speaker in the floating window to the phone and then back to speakerphone to get it to work again and then as soon as you change apps again even if you’re going back to the full phone app window it switches back again and you have to manually turn on speaker phone again.
