Truecaller Assistant is basically a customizable, interactive, digital receptionist that answers calls to users on their phones and also helps avoid unwanted callers. After receiving a call, the assistant will respond quickly and understand the caller with high accuracy.

A live transcription of what the caller is saying will be shown to users, after which they can decide whether they want to take the call, ask the caller for more information or mark it as spam with just a single tap.
