Despite the fact that smartphones can now do a lot of things, their primary function is still to make and receive phone calls. Smartphones have the advantage of allowing you to see who is calling you before you respond, but what if you don’t want to look at the screen at all?
Google has added a new feature to its phone app called ‘Caller ID Announcement.’ Google’s official Phone app, which comes pre-installed on Pixel devices, has the functionality.
You can download the Google Phone standalone app from the Google Play Store if you don’t have a Pixel smartphone. Every Android smartphone is completely compatible with Google’s official Phone app.
