Truecaller may soon come out with a revamped business profile feature, which will allow businesses to setup up a Truecaller profile with a host of useful information for customers. We found several strings detailing revamped business profiles while performing a teardown of the Truecaller Android APK file recently.
Truecaller Reintroducing Business Profiles Soon?
The strings that we found while digging through the Truecaller APK file reveal that Business profiles on Truecaller will include useful information such as business hours, contact person details, address, logo, description, pictures, open days, email address, brand color, and more. Business profiles will even be able to link to their Facebook page. As with any other APK teardown, we cannot be certain that the business profiles feature revealed by these strings will be introduced soon by Truecaller. While Truecaller has not confirmed any plans of bringing back business profiles, a “Truecaller for business’ page on the company’s official website suggests the feature will indeed be back soon. Unfortunately, however, there is no information currently available on when exactly Truecaller plans to reintroduce business profiles.
When Truecaller Business was first introduced, it allowed businesses to control how their business is presented within the Truecaller app. They would need to register their business, add a business number, and add a photo. As mentioned above, the revamped Truecaller Business will allow them to add a lot more details.
While Truecaller started off as an app that allowed users to screen spam calls and text messages with its integrated caller ID service, the company introduced a chat feature to both its Android iOS apps last month. Truecaller also offers payments feature in India, allowing users to send or receive money using any Unified Payments Interface (UPI) supported bank. In addition to sending and receiving money, Truecaller users can also use the app’s payment feature to do prepaid recharges. Truecaller claims over 80 billers will soon be going live, which should help make the app’s payment feature more popular. Truecaller recently tied up with Bank of Baroda in India to enable payments using the BHIM Baroda Pay UPI service. The company already has a partnership with ICICI Bank to offers its users bank-grade security.
