Verizon Call Filter app bags a new update with ability to block numbers similar to yours & based on first six digits
Smartphones have become an integral part of our daily lives. However, no one likes getting spam calls and messages every now and then.
This is where features like filters for spam and mystery calls come into the picture. There are several apps like Google Phone with such handy features.
The Verizon Call Filter app allowed users to identify and block spam calls among other features when it first came out.
Now, it seems that the said app is getting some more enhancements to block specific number types with the latest update.
As per a recent report on Reddit, the latest app update allows Verizon subscribers to block numbers similar to theirs.
Apart from that, users can even block numbers based on the first six digits with the latest Call Filter app update.
While the said features do sound quite handy, it seems the network service provider does not want to highlight them.
The latest Call Filter app update changelog simply states “New features and bug fixes.” This generic changelog is quite common with most app updates nowadays.
However, since there have been no comments on the matter from either vendors, it is unclear whether such a norm will come into effect or not.
It is still good to see that Verizon is enhancing its Call Filter app with such handy features but such efforts go in vain if they are not properly highlighted in the changelogs.
That said, we will report back with more such stories as and when we get new information to share so stay tuned.
