Truecaller, a caller identification app will be adding a couple of new features to its app which includes number scanner, Scan and Pay and Fast Track Number. The company will roll out the update through the upcoming Android Update 8.45 in the next two weeks.
Number Scanner is an interesting feature that will allow users to scan a number directly from a business card, website, straight sign, shop fronts or anywhere you need to quickly look up a number or store it to your contact rather than manually keying the number. To do it, it will require access to your smartphone's camera.
