Truecaller now has over 150-million daily active users, the company announced last week.
This comes after its announcement in April 2018, when it crossed the 100-million daily active user barrier. Back then, around 20% of those users resided in Africa, but Truecaller attributes its recent growth spurt to users in India.
The company added that it now ranks third in the country as the most used communications app in the country, behind WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.

Truecaller’s also set to add two features to its upcoming build, including a full screen caller ID system, which allows users to see whether an “incoming call is personal, business, or spam”, and call alerts, which sends an alert to users before a call is placed on a network.
