This new function aims to prevent spam and fraud calls, as Google has announced in a statement, since according to a report by the Federal Communications Commission (FTC) of the United States they cause an average impact of a thousand dollars a year in delays. These calls are accompanied by a verification symbol and show the name of the calling company, its logo and the reason for the call, in cases where the company has been authenticated by Google.
This verification is carried out in a secure way, according to Google, since the company does not collect or store any information with which people can be identified. Call verification makes it more likely that people will respond to calls from unknown numbers, distinguishing spam from useful calls, according to tests carried out by Google before its launch. The new verified calls function has been initially launched in the Google Phone app in Spain and four other countries – the United States, Mexico, Brazil and India – and from this week it will also be able to be used in new models of mobile devices.
