It’s easy to miss important calls from businesses, like from your bank or food delivery service, because you don’t want to answer an unknown caller. We’re working to fix that with Verified Calls on Google’s Phone app → https://t.co/4Llxn1Grm1 pic.twitter.com/G1f12z3VsG

The feature is akin to Google’s Verified SMS function, in that even if you don’t have a business’ number saved, you’ll be able to tell who’s calling before you answer. For extra peace of mind, you can use Google’s call screening option too. The Verified Calls feature is initially available in the US, Mexico, Brazil, Spain and India. It’ll arrive in other countries later.
Meanwhile, more non-Pixel devices will soon be able to use the Google Phone app. Later this week, those with select devices running Android Pie and above (including LG and Samsung flagships) can download the app from the Google Play Store.
