Learn to Send Spam Calls Straight to Voicemail on Android
Even if there are a number of apps that can stop robocalls, and some of them are available for free, none can be better than Google Phone. Google started its fight against automated telemarketing calls back in 2016 when it started warning the use of suspected robocalls by turning the screen bright red and listing the caller as “Suspected Spam Call”. This wasn’t quite a success, yet Google is reportedly adding a new feature to its phone app that is sure to please phone users everywhere – sending the spam calls straight to voicemail on Android.
That is its answer to our repeated demands to eliminate this annoyance that virtually everyone with a phone has had to learn to deal with at least once: automated telemarketing. Users won’t get any sort of missed call or voicemail notification, but filtered calls will though appear in call history and any voicemails left will still show up in that respective tab.
The Google Phone App might be the default dialer on the Pixel, the Nexus and Android One devices, but it has not been made available to the general public, at least not yet. This doesn’t mean that you should lose you hope, but you can choose to become a beta tester of the app and get the very best out of it, including this new feature that sounds so promising.
Learn to Send Spam Calls Straight to Voicemail on Android:
- First of all, you need to get the Google Phone App by becoming a beta tester;

That was all!
