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.

I'm going to try it again last time I didn't see any call screening features any Visual Voicemail features or spam protection it just worked as it always did I did not see any of the new advertised features maybe they weren't available at the time or maybe they're just for pixels. (After response) And still I see nothing special about this it looks like a regular dialing app. Samsung has so many more options and settings.

It is not a very intuitive app. Things like getting voicemail set up were super opaque and other features like trying to set the number of rings before voicemail picks up, or accessing your most called contacts or different things are just not set up as well as I've seen on other phones. Would love for the usability side of this particular app to be better. Thanks

Once you get Google Fi activated and I decided to receive a new number and worked right away. I dont like the fact you have to pay for data as you go . The flex is supposed to be affordable and it should include a certain amount of data and than slow it down , instead of paying extra 10 for data not included t doesn't seem like I'm saving plus you don't have Internet access everywhere unless you have WiFi of your own. I thought considering Google Fi would allow you to access online.

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.
