Google likely to rebrand phone app as Google call, similar to Truecaller

Google is gearing up to launch its phone app’s new avatar as Google call that is touted as a reliable caller ID app as Truecaller. The company hasn’t revealed anything officially about the app, but a Reddit user saw the YouTube ad. The ad has already revealed the name and logo of the Google Call app with the Google-coloured icon and the ad says that it “lets you answer with confidence”. While the ad had a link for the installation of the Phone app, reports have suggested that this could be a rebranding effort being undertaken by Google Workspace.

Google has been working on adding numerous functionalities to the Phone app, like adding a verified feature for business calls which would also allow the businesses to specify the reason for calling before making the call.


In October, the search engine giant had stated that it would be rebranding G Suite apps to Workspace, under which Drive, Meet, Docs, Chat, Gmail, Keep and Calendar got updated icons with the Google colours and a similar design pattern. If Google Call is, in fact, a rebranding of the Phone app, it would fit right in with these apps.
