About this app

Google’s official phone calling app is now available to download for the first time. Phone helps you easily connect with family and friends, block spam callers, and know who’s calling before you answer – all with a simple, intuitive design.

Powerful spam protection
See warnings about suspicious callers that help you avoid unwanted calls from spammers, telemarketers and scammers. Block numbers to prevent them from calling you again.

Know who’s calling you
Google’s extensive caller ID coverage lets you know the business that’s calling so that you can answer with confidence.

No more waiting on hold 1, 5
Hold for Me lets you go back to your day. If a business puts you on hold, Google Assistant can wait on the line for you and let you know when someone is ready to talk.

Screen unknown callers 1, 2
Call Screen answers unknown callers, filters out detected spammers without interrupting you, and helps you learn more about callers you don’t recognize before you pick up.

Visual voicemail 1, 3
Check your messages without needing to call your voicemail – view and play them in any order, read transcriptions, and delete or save them right from the app.

Call recording 1
Record your phone calls to capture important information for reference later. Everyone hears a disclosure when the recording starts so they’re aware, and recordings are saved on your phone.

Intuitive design
Our simple, lightweight design keeps your favorite people just a tap away. Plus, switch to dark mode to save battery and reduce eye strain at night.

Emergency support 1, 4
See your current location when you make an emergency call, and share information about the assistance you require, along with your location, to the emergency operator without speaking.

Response to Developer: I have and yes it's integrated, but still a separate app. Video calling doesn't work, unless you turn it on. And there is no prompt when opening the Phone app on first use. Review: Stop changing the video calling feature. No one has it setup, AGAIN, because you keep screwing with it. Leave it alone and make it a prompt when you setup the phone the first time. It should be built into the "Phone" not required a second app most people will never open. Keep It Simple Stupid.

Hi, Hiram. Thank you for your feedback. The Phone app is integrated with Google Meet for video calling. Kindly refer to if you need additional information for making video calls. Hope this helps!

Google Assistant ruined what used to be a simple and reliable phone app. Everytime I click on one of my favorite contacts to call, I get a pop-up that basically asks if I want to call them on the phone or make a video call. I get pop-ups and weird notifications within the app asking me to enable certain Google Assistant related features that I neither need nor want. I used to be able to open my phone app and make a phone call with one tap of my finger. No longer. Very poor design.

Terrible. Lucky to have a call longer than 2 minutes before it's dropped. I've done everything possible, including having the updated version, reinstalling, clearing the cache, etcetera. Still doesn't work but once in a while. Send me a live link to your app is AWFUL. I've tried clearing all the cash, uninstalling, reinstalling, and yet I can't get a phone call to last longer than 2 minutes. FIX THIS D@MN APP!!!!!

What's new

With our latest update to Call Screen on Pixel devices in the US, the Google Assistant now helps you automatically screen unknown callers and filter out detected robocalls before your phone ever rings. And when it’s not a robocall, your phone rings a few moments later with helpful context about who is calling and why.
