Google rolls out “spam call blocking” feature for Nexus and Android One devices
While Google is currently preparing tirelessly for the launch of their newest android version – The Android Nougat 7.0 – they have also not let their priorities shift away from providing support to the existing users of the android platform and a new security update rolled out days ago is a proof of that. This update from Google mainly addresses the traditional phone app on androids and helps to detect and block spam calls from entering your device.
In other words, Google has just created for you a filter to prevent the issues of spam calls, so you can now be rest assured that any call that comes in through your device is very legit. Also, with this new update, you are allowed to not only block but also report these numbers that are calling you. This feature would not only work for spam calls only though because you would also be able to block numbers you don’t like too.

As great as this update sounds, Google is only releasing it to the users of their Nexus and Android One devices and although the global search engine giant has not said anything yet, we do hope it comes to other android brands too.
