Spam messages can be a waste of time when reading through or having to delete them from your device.
The leading communication app, Truecaller, recently announced that the addition of a new spam-filtering feature for iOS app will filter out SMS and MMS spam from iMessage and send them to a junk tab.
The feature works similar to junk email, which is filtered into a designated spam folder. Users will now no longer have to waste time deleting unwanted messages manually from their devices.
"Now, iPhone users will have a powerful tool to automatically filter junk and spam SMSes, which has been highly requested by our users," said Rishit Jhunjhunwala, Vice President of Product at Truecaller, in a statement.
Truecaller claims that it blocks 100 million spam SMS and text messages each week globally. On a weekly basis, approximately 82 million spam texts or SMS are received by their Indian users alone, out of which 24 million are automatically blocked, claims the company.
Recently, Truecaller released Flash Messaging and Google Duo powered video calling. The app has been used by more than 250 million users globally.
