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.

Phone app is available on most Android devices running Android 9.0 and above.

Suddenly stopped working on me, can't make or receive phone calls, and the help function is not helpful at all in trying to fix this. Use the app the time would hate to have to switch. Tried emailing the email that they have on the page to contact them if there's any issues and it's not even being monitored anymore, it just tries to send you to the unhelpful support page

Hi, Ozzy. Please check your cellular or Wi-Fi connection. The Wi-Fi or mobile data icon should have at least 1 bar. If you experience bad connectivity, move to a location with better connection. If you still have issues, submit feedback within the Phone app by clicking the Menu button then the 'Support' tab and tap 'Send Feedback'. Thanks!

I love all of the features! Especially the ability to screen calls; so great. My only issue is I feel it's a little difficult getting to the different options to use for audio, for example speaker, handheld, Bluetooth, etc. I guess I switch back and forth between different modes more frequently than I thought, namely from hand held to speaker. If there were a designated button just for the speaker use I'd be more comfortable using the phone!

Works mostly fine, but I have 2 issues. When trying to search for a phone number in the contacts it won't find it unless you type in all of the prefixes exactly as they're saved (wild card search not working correctly). The other problem happens when I've switched to another app while on a call. it's difficult to get the phone call to come back up so the call can be ended. It will turn to a blue pill with a timer at the top of the screen, but when you click on it the screen goes blank.

Hi, Shawn. We're sorry to hear that. Let's try resetting the app data. More information, please refer to "Clear the app's cache" section by clicking the following link: https://goo.gl/gX7ctA. Also, we ask that you submit feedback within the Phone app by clicking the Menu button then the 'Support' tab and tap 'Send Feedback'.

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.
