Make sure you've put your phone number on the government's do not call list: [link]
And if you have an Android phone using Google's Phone app you can now have spam calls go straight to voicemail! Go to Phone App-> Settings-> Caller ID & spam-> Filter suspected spam calls.
I think it's the later versions of Google's Phone app
Edit: Quote the Play Store page
>Avoid unwanted calls - Screen spam, scams and other unwanted calls. Get real-time transcription and block unwanted callers so you never hear from them again. (Available in US English on Pixel devices)
I'm pretty sure it's part of the default Android "Phone" app (as in, the actual app called "Phone").
You can find it on the app store here but I'm not sure if installing it works (you'd probably have to set it as the default calling app).
If I understand correctly, you can only make calls on Android with apps, the default on the Pixel being the 'Phone' app (made by Google).
If you have android, the google phone app (the one native to the pixel and nexus) has a fantastic spam detector. Link here
True. Ideally Apple should unbundle apps so that they can upgrade just those critical components. I know Apple won't go to such an extreme but Google actually unbundled the "Phone" app on android and regularly provides updates to it via the Play Store! I'm not kidding. Here it is listed on the play store: [link]
Google's already done this in their Phone app (as in, their official Phone app, this one). Any number that's already marked as "spam" by them simply doesn't ring your phone nor does it go to voicemail.
>I also don't understand why it's so hard for carriers to validate the legitimacy of a call.
Hard? Nah. Money? Yup. Why do something that doesn't really inconvenience them if it would cost more money? Plus now they get to do nothing and charge you to do something instead. Double win for them.
This is built into the Google Dialer app (which you can find here). The dialer on the G5 is the standard AOSP dialer app (which doesn't come with this feature).
Hope this solves your problem!
Não funciona com este? Se não dá não é só questão de teres apagado a app do dialler, deves ter apagado mais qualquer coisa.
A alternativa é voltar a instalar a ROM. Se fizeste root o processo deve ser semelhante. Aproveita e instala uma custom ROM que já vem limpa e sem bloatware (cyanogenmod por exemplo)
Sign up as a beta tester for the Google Phone Dialer app [link]
Then turn on the setting to filter spam calls: [link]
I currrently use the Hangouts Dialer (I use Google Voice, so it's the only dialer that's available), but the standard Google Dialer is really good.
ExDialer is really customizable and has theme support (linked app is a trial, if you like it, support the developer and buy it!).
I've had good luck with Google's phone/dialer app: [link]
I haven't used Should I Answer so I can't provide a direct comparison.
Are you able to install the Google Phone app from the Play Store? I've been able to do that on my G7 and G8, but I can't remember if it worked back when I had a V30.
> Is it just a Pixel thing?
The call screening is just a Pixel thing, but the spam filtering may be available to you. Can you use the Google phone app?
I'm on Android 7.1 and don't have this. Just checked and I'm unable to install the original Phone app. Guess I'm carrier limited or vendor locked.
The Google Phone app makes a notification during ongoing calls, which can be intercepted by AutoNotification and used in conjunction with the Not Proximity State:
State: Not Proximity Sensor
State: AutoNotification Intercept [
Persistency Type: Persistent Only
Notification Apps: Phone
Notification Text: ^(Dialing|.+ call)$ (regex) ]
Enter: Speakerphone On
A1: Speakerphone [
Exit: Speakerphone Off
A1: Speakerphone [
If you installed GApps the default dialer got replaced. Installed this and let me know if it improves at all:
It was part of stock Android 6+ and Google's Phone app:
Your best bet is to use T-Mobile Visual Voicemail:
or check XDA forums for a hacked version of Google's that you can sideload onto that Note.
I think he means the Google Dialer: [link]
Unfortunately that one isn't avalaible for everyone unless you fiddle around with your phone (root etc.). If you really want it I'd suggest googling on how to get it for your phone.
It may show up as unavailable for you:
What platform are you using? The stock dialer on many systems (such as CyanogenMod/LineageOS dialer, which are based on AOSP) is nearly identical to the one Google has on the Play Store.
my 3t comes tomorrow, i have a tmobile sim too so i'll look into it, hopefully somebody else can comment too
also are you using the google phone app? try that if u can
Maybe try downloading this app? It's made by google and it's basically an upgrade from the stock phone app. Not sure if it works on BLU devices though.
If it says it's incompatible with your phone, just get some other 3rd party phone app.
Use the stock Google Phone app, works great. Assuming you're running marshmallow or higher.
If you can't install it, you can grab an older apk that should work from APK mirror.
It actually is on the Play store, but it's not that easy to search for. Just go to Google and search for: Google phone app. You'll see a result for an app that's simply called "Phone". That's the one.
Nope - I meant Google Dialer. Apparently the play store is just listed as "Phone," though. Apparently Google has only made it available to certain devices. Other users on the Note 5 just sideloaded, but some other folks are reporting being able to view/install it (specifically a user with an LG G Stylo).
Is this the app you're referring to? [link]
If so, it says "*This app update is supported on Nexus, Android One and Google Play Edition devices running Android Marshmallow and above."
everything is updated, thats weird...You using this one?: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.dialer&hl=en
Edit: I have the G8s if that is the problem maybe...
I never talked about iphone. I wrote "Phone app". This app:
Also, an app doesn't have to be a dialer in order to block calls.
It can just listen to calls-related events and act accordingly.
In fact it doesn't even have to be a dialer app to trigger dialing to someone. It just needs the Phone permission for this.
ok my version of phone is 33.0.249 --> https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.dialer
which pixel do you own?
u/DellCares -- Just wanted to update you on this. Basically, Google has the wrong CallerID name associated with your 800-456-3355 number. They have "Oklahoma Federal Credit Union", so for anyone who uses Google Phone App on Android ([link]) and doesn't already have a contact saved with that number on your phone it shows the Credit Union. I assume they got mixed up somehow with the branch at your DellEMC OKC Campus. I'm not even sure how you fix this, maybe you know someone over at Google.
Hope that helps!!!
The setting would be in the phone application itself.
If you fail to find the setting or there isn't you could try setting up an alternative application to handle calls
Have you tried the Google dialer?
actually it has been here for 2 months
in the canadian playstore an update of the phone app introduced
the feature last month and the last update of the phone app says
Avoid unwanted calls - Screen spam, scams and other unwanted calls. Get real-time transcription and block unwanted callers so you never hear from them again. (Available in US English on Pixel devices)
so now i think the feature is blocked wither by crtc or the phone service providers and usually you shoudnt be able to download apps that are for usa only ... and why i think it is blocked by bell rogers etc ... they do the same with visual voicemail introduced with the pixel 2 xl and they even block volte on the pixel 3
nope! by native i mean in the regular phone app which comes predownloaded, no separate app at all. if you look at the pictures it lists visual voicemail as a feature on several carriers, plus i read several others not listed there also have visual voicemail by default?
Go to the app store and search for Google's default phone app. Then go down a little and enroll into the beta program like any other app that has a beta program. That's how I got it a few weeks back.
I have the 2xl though
edit: Here's the link. [link]
The first thing I personally would do would be to switch to an alternative like Google Phone
If that doesn't work, I'm not sure if this will work without restarting the app but you could try removing the permission with...
Run Shell with Root ticked and the command pm revoke com.android.phone android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO
Not sure what your package name is but you could try com.google.android.dialer
Replace revoke with enable to revert
That might be it. Your phone isn't listed here: [link]
Have you disabled GV call forwarding to your number? You can do that and only enable Hangouts calling for all incoming calls. You will still be able to make calls out using the native phone dialer wherever you have network coverage if you prefer that.
Another thing to check is, see if you can replace the Xiaomi phone dialer with the Google one, just in case they have their own dialer app instead of the default: [link]
I'm assuming you have your theme set to dark in settings > display options. If you don't/can't, there was a key called display_options_dark_mode in com.google.android.dialer_preferences.xml which you could switch to true. I haven't tested that and it may just change back when you open Google Dialer again.
By Google Dialer, I mean this one that you can only get by having an Android One device or a Magisk module that gets it for you.
I'm assuming you are using the latest version of Google Dialer.
I had VVM with message transcriptions on my Nexus 5X, but I recently replaced that phone with a Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact. I still have VVM, but no transcripts. Is that the phone's fault? I think it's a Sony dialer app; the stock dialer is listed as incompatible with the Xperia.
Oh, I see why, it is not compatible with my device
It has these listed:
Verizon Wireless Samsung SM-G950U
Verizon Wireless Google Pixel
But has an x by the Samsung and a check by the google.
edit: apparently I can just try this.
The app is called Google Phone, it's the official Google dialer app:
When Voice was redesigned months ago, it lost the ability to put its voicemail in the voicemail tab of that app.
Not using Google's Phone/Dialer app?
I've been using this on my phone and have not experienced any problem or slow downs.
If you're on Verizon, try the solutions here for general improvements to LTE service. Some have commented that one way worked much better than the other.
Do you have Google Duo installed? Try to remove it and try again.
Are you using any spam call blocker that integrates with the dialer? If so, which one?
Open this in the Google Play Store. Is it up to date or does it show Update? If you see update, update the application and try again.
If none of this helps, Beta 2 will be released soon. According to posts, Beta 1 users can update to Beta 2 OTA so it will be available as an update for your device.
I myself don't have that device but you could try installing the Google Phone App which lets you block spam calls and gives you alert on potential spam calls.
By process of elimination: Sprint doesn't have VoLTE and won't any time soon. AT&T restricts to whitelisted phones even on postpaid. Verizon just enabled it on prepaid. T-Mobile supports unlocked phones but only if they have band 12 & E911 certification.
Google notes that VVM is only supported for Project Fi, T-Mobile USA, and Orange France.
I've read opinions on Reddit that N5X Wi-Fi calling has poor call quality with breaks in audio.
The stock app (actually named Phone) is available in the app store. If you can't update it through the app store, try downloading it from APKMirror.
By official app, I mean the T-Mo visual voicemail app, yeah. As for dialer, I've never used the Samsung dialer so unfortunately I wouldn't know. I use Google's app as my dialer: [link]
As for transcription, I think using the official T-Mo app is the only way to get that feature.
By phone app, i mean the phone app from the home screen, which on my phone is this one: [link]
You might have a different one though, a lot of manufactures make thier own ones.
I want the Google Dialer. And it seems that the "Phone" app in the Play Store is different, if the base is not a Nexus/Pixel-like dialer.
Am I wrong?
I could be wrong but I think hangouts dialer only initiates VOIP calls, not voice calls.
See if the Google phone app is available to your device: [link]
There are also rips of the Nexus apps on the store if you search marshmallow dialer or lollipop dialer.
eek, MIUI. Xiaomi does some heavy customization to their phones and their phone permission settings that could be interfering. Try checking your security settings and app permissions for BuzzOut. Make sure you granted it all the permissions it requested. Also try using the stock dialer from Google if you can and see if it helps.
I use to use a Mi3 personally, but the MIUI customization wrecked so much compatibility havoc, especially with google voice and MIUIs stock dialer that I gave up using it and moved on to a OnePlus 3.
So far I've got my SD card setup and many google apps: Google Now Launcher, Google Keyboard, Calendar, Messenger. But the play store says the dialer ([link]) is not compatible with my device.
So far so good!
Well, i like to install Google Camera, Google Phone apps. But since they are Nexus-specific apps I am getting error installing them.
Google Phone App: [link]
the playstore determine compatibility from what your phone/device tells it is. sounds like your stock OPX is telling the playstore that its not compatible.
Here is the playstore link: [link]
You could also try to sideload the apk if you want to: [link]
Me pasa lo mismo, me llaman como 5 veces por día. Cuando atendía y decía "Hola" después del tono, eran de Claro o Personal ofreciendo un plan. Bloqueé las llamadas. Uso la App de Google: [link]
I was stuck on 2.5 (the current version in the play store). I had to manually download and install 4.x from a link someone posted on reddit.
I think I got it from here.
No, the official Google dialer. But I think you have to be running Marshmallow for it to work. But before this, I did use TrueDialer because it had the most similar features to the default one.
People keep saying it's nexus only: on my OPX with CM13 I just installed the dialer from the Google play store and it has the spam features. It's literally right here: [link]
As the prior user stated it is part of the Phone app which users of non-nexus devices may be able to download on the play store([link]). It is also more limited to only displaying caller id information for businesses.
Have you tried making Google Phone your default app? [link]
I have a similar problem where I can make my first call, but if it lasts longer than a few minutes all the subsequent calls I make or receive have no audio. Something must be wrong here!
does COS13 not allow you to stock the Google dialer instead? [link]
And for those that say COS doesnt come with malware/bloatware on it... Truecaller is just one example of it on these roms.
Admittedly I do have the contacts app installed already, just didn't quite realize that. For the record, it was these:
Are you able to use Google's Dialer?
How about Google's Contacts?
Can you enable Developer options, turn on GPU rendering profile, move around the phone a little bit, then post a screenshot?
Sorry if that last one is hard. I can help if you need me to.
Rolling out in the Play Store beta channel, go to the bottom of the listing and opt in for the beta
Could you confirm if the Google Phone app is able to be installed?
How about the Google Dialer ?
The default Android Phone app does this now too. Spam calls can be filtered so they don't disturb you at all.
It's part of the standard Android dialer: [link]
It's been a life saver.
The phone app or V13?
The phone app is on the play store: [link]
Note: Android 6.0 minimum
"The Phone app has a fresh new look. And coming soon - Dark mode."
Sorry for your loss of privacy and all of your friend's. To help you recover, I propose this one.
I have the same problem. I'm running lineage-15.1-20180305-nightly-dumpling-signed.zip + open_gapps-arm64-8.1-nano-20180303.zip.
My first suspicion was that I installed these apps recently:
But uninstalling them and wiping cache doesn't help. It happens only if I insert two SIM cards.
Until this gets fixed here is a workaround which I found:
My suspicion is that it could be something related to encryption because some files not accessible to the system before I unlock the phone but that's just my guess - I don't have much knowledge about Android or LineageOS internals.
There's a very good alternative called Phone.
The phone app is available to be downloaded in the Play Store if you have Marshmallow or higher.
Is this it?
Google's built in dialer does this too
this is the latest but you might not have it. Are you in the US ?
Linkme: Google Dialer
Bot linked the wrong app
Yup. Folks can sideload it with varying degrees of success but it's only officially supported on the devices I mentioned.
Or look on apkmirror
Try this link
Have a check around the Play store for other apps that are like Truecaller that may offer SMS and call blocking without the need for registration. Being honest, I've not looked myself, but maybe the standard Google dialer and SMS apps might do the trick when installed:
Google SMS app:
Bisogna installare l'App telefono di Google... [link]
Yeah like Google's: [link]
If that doesn't work it sounds like maybe something your carrier is doing...
Why would the Pixel have a 3rd party dialer? It's just called phone and it's by Google. Way to spam around here.
Ma il dialer, non é quello di Google, che sta anche sul play store?
The app says it is incompatible with my device. Think I could sideload the APK?
Stock Android Phone app on 8.0 Beta, Nexus 6P
Oh yikes. Here's the Google dialer if you just want something simple
Caller ID for unknown numbers isn't an AOSP feature, it's a Google Dialer feature.
I have a OP3
Is it just the Hangouts Dialer?
Found it [link]
it's definitly not on stock: [link] & [link]
We're talking about this app, right? [link]
Shows it was last updated in May.
Will this web link work?

right. the app is called phone.
Phone – Apps on Google Play
I have a problem installing this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.dialer
the stock android dialer has a spam filter option: [link]
I use Google Phone, incoming spam calls are solid red and it says "suspected spam caller".
Ma non hai il phone ufficiale di google?
You can deactivate the truecaller app and install the Google Dialer or the Dialer app from Asus
Try Google phone app or another? [link]
Is this not it?
Damn. What about installing a third party dialer? Like the Google Phone app? At least to see if it works
> Google dialer
Try installing the Google Dialer from the Play Store. It should be the exact same as on your Nexus:
They're on the play store?
Can I just install these APKs on 7.0?
Here's the playstore link... It should work if you're running Nougat
The Google Dialer app....[link]
I didn't purchase my phone from Verizon, which is why I'm seeking clarification.
This app, yes?
Grab the latest google playstore: Phone app its got caller id and number blocking built in. [link]
Google Dialer has spam protection.
[link] - there you go! Its available for almost all phones and carriers.
Or install from here [link]
Umm no it's not (in stock android at least): [link] & [link]
Here you go: [link]
Just uninstall it?
I dirty flashed cos13 from cos12 and truecaller didn't install for me
from the playstore on my desktop. Pushed it to the phone through the web. [link]
Reportedly it won't install on the G5.
If it did, it would be going on mine also (when I get it monday or tuesday).
The Marshmallow Dialer has this functionality (see [link]) , but please remember: OxygenOS is still on Lollipop
It might not be for your device because you probably have LG dialer or something. I assume, at least.
Can you install the Google Dialer?: [link]
Ah, it might be 5.0+
You can actually accomplish something similar using a pretty simple app, you just have to know a specific code associated with the person you're trying to locate. Once you type the code into the app you'll usually be able to get all kinds of information about their location, ETA, calendar events, weather conditions where they are, etc. This is the app I use, though there are plenty of alternatives.
This is on the play store.
>If i can aquire it via the play store it does not need to be forced upon me.
So by that logic the Dialer app is bloat because you can download it from the play store. Also the launcher (you know that thing you kinda use to navigate your device) is also bloat by that logic.
