After Android, Truecaller rolls out flash messaging for iPhone


Truecaller has started rolling out flash messaging feature for iPhone users. The feature that was already available for Android lets users communicate via pre-defined messages, phrases and emojis. Treucaller says more than 41 million users have upgraded to the Flash-embedded version of Truecaller 8 for Android.

With flash messaging iPhone users can now answer yes-or-no questions, share a location or call back. It also allows users to customize flash messages for in-built responses. A flash message looks like an incoming call, but unlocks to be an incoming message. It has pre-filled ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ options to quickly answer an important question. You can respond to the messages by sending location, emojis, and pre-written smart answers in just one tap. The flash messaging icon looks like a lightening bolt that distinguishes itself from a normal app. The notification lasts for 60 seconds until it becomes a missed flash message.

Truecaller says, flash messaging helps users avoid cluttered SMS inboxes and ten-second calls.
