WHAT'S NEW


With our latest update to Call Screen on Pixel devices in the US, the Google Assistant now helps you automatically screen unknown callers and filter out detected robocalls before your phone ever rings. And when it’s not a robocall, your phone rings a few moments later with helpful context about who is calling and why.

DESCRIPTION

Google’s official phone calling app is now available to download for the first time. Phone helps you easily connect with family and friends, block spam callers, and know who’s calling before you answer – all with a simple, intuitive design.

Powerful spam protection
See warnings about suspicious callers that help you avoid unwanted calls from spammers, telemarketers and scammers. Block numbers to prevent them from calling you again.

Know who’s calling you
Google’s extensive caller ID coverage lets you know the business that’s calling so that you can answer with confidence.

No more waiting on hold 1, 5
Hold for Me lets you go back to your day. If a business puts you on hold, Google Assistant can wait on the line for you and let you know when someone is ready to talk.

Screen unknown callers 1, 2
Call Screen answers unknown callers, filters out detected spammers without interrupting you, and helps you learn more about callers you don’t recognize before you pick up.

Visual voicemail 1, 3
Check your messages without needing to call your voicemail – view and play them in any order, read transcriptions, and delete or save them right from the app.

Call recording 1
Record your phone calls to capture important information for reference later. Everyone hears a disclosure when the recording starts so they’re aware, and recordings are saved on your phone.

Intuitive design
Our simple, lightweight design keeps your favorite people just a tap away. Plus, switch to dark mode to save battery and reduce eye strain at night.

Emergency support 1, 4
See your current location when you make an emergency call, and share information about the assistance you require, along with your location, to the emergency operator without speaking.

Phone app is available on most Android devices running Android 7.0 and above.

I had no notification from the phone. Call tech support and they work with me for about 4 hours and no luck. They said I need a factory reset. They back up all my data and did the reset. The reset was a nightmare.Could not get the backup on my phone. Were still working on this problem. The more I look into this I think that how it suppose to work. No phone notification and cannot turn off data.

I want to inform you that your "Phone by Google" app has a bug where it resets the "display over other apps" setting to allowed every time it update. This has been quite an annoyance for me as I don't care for the bubble interface. Hopefully this can be resolved in the near future. Thank you. Edit: Clearing cache did not work. Oneplus 8 Pro actually just got Android 12 update and still no fix. The option actually disappeared from the app setting but the new global option doesn't work either.

Hi, Oneil. We're sorry to hear that. Let's try resetting the app data. More information, please refer to "Clear the app's cache" section by clicking the following link: https://goo.gl/gX7ctA. Hope this helps!

Never hardly works. Edit: The screen turns black or freezes when ringing, making it impossible to answer calls. The phone volume is so low even when completely turned up or with the speaker phone on that I can hardly hear or even be heard. This is the first phone I have ever had ran with Google operating systems and my expectations were not met. I love Google in general, yet this particular experience has been a let down.
----------
Hi, Cassandra. Try restarting your phone and make sure you have updated the Phone app to the most recent version. If that doesn't work, try clearing the app’s cache and storage or you may also uninstall and reinstall the Phone app. Hope this helps!

Lee

What's the last update of the phone app once again the caller ID announcement returned but still had an inaudible volume making it virtually useless. That was yesterday! Today I updated my phone and once again the caller ID announcement has been removed! What are you people doing?! I am totally dumbfounded by this because on paper you have a very good app in reality that's not the way it works! Fix it! I am unable to find the link you recommended. It is apparent that you DO NOT have a stable app! Why not? PLEASE FIX THIS APP to do the things you CLAIM it does!

Don't bug me to rate/review the default phone app!! It should work and make calls, and otherwise stay out of my way! Worse, there seems to be NO WAY to stop it from bugging you about rating it until you actually rate it. The popup will keep showing up after calls, even if you dismiss it. Hopefully the popup will go away now that I've been forced to rate/review it. Though at this point, I'm probably just going to disable it and replace it with an open source alternative like simple dialer.

The issue is with the call screening and auto answering. If it happens while I'm connected via Bluetooth to my car, my car doesn't play audio from anything else unless I delete my car, turn off my phone, turn it back on and rediscover my car again. I've sent in emails and bug reports with no response. Please advise.

Gwen

I've had this problem for a long time. This is a Samsung Galaxy 10+ phone. It comes with it's own phone app I can't get rid of. I've tried to make this app, the Google app, the default, but more often than not, the Samsung app will grab the call. I don't even see the call until I get a voicemail notice in my notifications. What settings do I need to set so that blasted Samsung app will stop grabbing focus on the background? I don't want to use their app.

Hi, Gwen. Thanks for reaching out. This seems to be a device-specific concern. For the best help, reach out to your device manufacturer. Hope this helps!

Phillip

This latest update with call assistant is bad. It randomly hangs up, stops working in the middle of calls when it incorrectly thinks a conversation has begun even though IVR is still in progress. Also, it begs for feedback after every. single. call! Feedback via the app will send my call transcripts and audio to the app developer? No thanks.

Rob

To many bells and whistles after last update. At first I couldn't make calls due to mic security being changed by app. I couldn't answer calls either due to 'Remove permissions and free up space' was turned on. Then when I called a company with an automated menu, phone app starts transcribing it on screen and it took me a few calls to figure out how to get to the keypad. Please turn new features off and let us users decide what we want on our off. Please stop the help us improve this app popup.

Never mind that Google is excessively invasive on their own. I can't help but notice the way the numbers look on my dial pad continually change. It's like it's normal when I clear the cache and delete everything, uninstall and reinstall. Everything looks normal. Maybe 2 minutes after that. Everything looks completely different. I know that I'm not changing the settings. I repeatedly switch it so that it can't display over other apps and yet here we are as it displays over other apps. Trash app.

Chase

I like the extra features that are part of the Google version of Phone. Unfortunately, 50% of the time phones calls are either muffled or distorted/robotic. Making it unreliable. So many times I have to end the call and try again, or restart the phone entirely. This doesn't happen with the built-in default Phone app at all. I want to use it for the extras, but I can't. This needs improvement. Motorola Edge 5G UW (2021), Android 11.

Hi, Chase. Let's try resetting the app data. Please refer to "Clear the app's cache" section by clicking the following link: https://goo.gl/gX7ctA. Also, make sure that your audio is working and the volume on your phone is turned up. Hope this helps.

for some reason when trying to call while connected to WiFi and I am 10 feet away from my router it just says calling. everything else is working normally. I've had no issues before. ridiculous. Update 15MAY22: Carrier had to write a program in order to make Wi-Fi calling to be enabled. They were trying to figure out as well and it should have been an easy fix. However, it wasn't an easy fix, so I had to wait about a week for their team to write a program, then push it to me, restart my phone.
----------
Hi, Jason. Check out this guide to making calls over Wi-Fi: https://goo.gle/35pfvca. If you are still experiencing issues, please submit feedback within the Phone app by tapping the three dot menu in the top right corner - Help & Feedback - Send Feedback. Thank you.

Chris..

Visual voicemail can't activate. Details: I have a pixel 4, which supports visual voicemail. I am on a spectrum plan that supports visual voicemail with my phone, and has it turned on for my line. There's no excuses. Google support has been COMPLETELY unresponsive. This instant regurgitated and completely unhelpful response from the developer is essentially a slap in the face in contrast to the fkn ghost town that is Google customer support.
----------
Hi, Christopher. Voicemail is currently limited to and available on supported devices and carriers with the latest version of the Phone app. For more information, you can refer to https://goo.gle/3bon8CD. Should you continue to have issues, submit feedback within the Phone app by clicking the Menu button > Support > Send Feedback. Thank you.

Norman

Has gotten much better, but there are times where inbound calls do not ring and head to voicemail. I believe this has something to do with spam blocking. If I'm looking at my phone, I would see the incoming call (name in my address book), but the phone never rang. The caller was sent to voicemail. Or maybe it has something to do with WiFi, as I'm basically on WiFi 90% of the time.

Lawre..

Like earlier updates, this update to Phone by Google causes visual voicemail (the list of voicemails) to disappear. If thus update is uninstalled the list reappears. This is happening on several of my family's phones. Motorola Edge phones, Republic Wireless. The suggestions you offer do not work. Only uninstalling all updates to the Google Phone app solves the problem. You've had many months to fix this problem. I now realize you have no intention of ever offering a real fix.

Louise

The latest update completely disabled the mic and speakers on my Pixel 1. I could still initiate and receive phone calls but could not hear and be heard by the other party. Uninstalling updates to the "Phone by Google" app fully restored the voice call functions. No, updating the app and clearing the cache didn't work. Went back to factory version.
----------
Hi, Louise. Let's try resetting the app data. Please refer to "Clear the app's cache" section by clicking the following link: https://goo.gl/gX7ctA. Also, make sure that your microphone is switched on and you are not muted. Hope this helps.

Thomas

Increasingly difficult to even answer a call. One wrong move and the call notification disappears. Recently, when I tap Answer in a banner notification, I get a full-screen notification... Swiping up to answer doesn't work. Screen just turns white. Swiping down to decline fails similarly. Can't make home button appear, so I have to restart. [Edit: this was a Google Fi issue.] Developer contact email on Play Store page is "no longer monitored." What a joke. Google should be renamed Buggle.

Marc

After reporting a problem with Call Screen hanging on "preparing" in the settings, Google pushed an update, and I am happy to report it now works by allowing me to choose the type of voice I want for call screening. The only thing now preventing 5 stars is an option to always display the Dialpad when the app is opened in the settings menu so I can quickly make a call instead of taking extra steps.

Timothy

Can't tell where call transcription on/off is. Thought I'd found several system settings to turn it off to no avail. Why turn it off? Because it's made calls, especially to customer services with layers of robo screening, virtually impossible to navigate. The transcription feature turns my display into a useless, mind-numbing on again-off again UX/UI and battery burner. I'd like to think that I'm fairly tech savvy, solving most issues on my own. But this issue leaves me 🤬
