The cell phone sounds and when you look at the screen you see it's an unknown number. It's probably a business call, but at the same time you are afraid that it can be something important. Do you doubt to answer?
Google has decided to resort to artificial intelligence to help the user in these cases. The technology company launched the Call of Certification in November, an application that filters forward calls without having to respond.
Currently, the service is only available on Pixel devices where it is installed by default. Anyway, it is expected that the application will end up and come to the Android, although Google has not yet talked about dates.
When the user of these devices receives a call, they will have the option to activate the Call Screen that will appear on the screen. If activated, the caller will hear an automatic voice that will ask you to identify you and explain the reason for the call.
At the same time, a screen will appear on the screen conversation transcriptionso that the user can decide whether he wants to answer the call. Otherwise, the vocal assistant will apologize and reject it.
What happens if it is not easy to identify who is calling? In this case, the service offers the options "Tell me more", "Is it urgent?" and "Call back later", which can be activated by the same screen.
Google said the transcripts of these calls remain on the phone and are not stored on their servers, although the user can recover them in the history of their mobile phone.
