What Happened

Truecaller introduced Truecaller Assistant, an AI-driven feature to answer calls on phones.

The Assistant

The AI bot greets callers, uses speech-to-text to identify them, and finds out the purpose of the call.


In January 2022, Truecaller acquired a front desk phone training & call metrics company known as CallHero and rebranded it as Truecaller Assistant.


The virtual assistant is capable of operating not only in Hindi and English, but in 'Hinglish' as well.

Rishit Jhunjhunwala, Truecaller MD, likened the AI feature to an advanced answering machine for smartphones.
