New Delhi: Leading communication app Truecaller is set to roll out two new features in its app this week -- Number Scanner and Fast Track numbers.
 
The Number Scanner will let users scan a number directly from business cards, websites, street signs, shop fronts or any other place, eliminating the need of manual entry to look up or store a number in the contacts list.
 
The feature can also be used to scan numbers, instead of QR codes, to pay directly using Truecaller Pay, the app`s payment platform.
 
When you see an important phone number, you can directly pull it into your phone with Truecaller and use it in seconds to connect or make a payment," said Narayan Babu, Director, Product and Engineering, Truecaller, in a statement.

 

 
The Fast Track numbers, which will only be available in India, is a service which integrates toll-free emergency numbers for services like police, fire, medical care, women`s helpline, roadside assistance as well as other essential categories to provide accessibility without the internet connection.
 
"During critical moments, you can reach out to the right company, person or service with a single tap with Fast track numbers," Babu added.
 
Located in the search bar, the inbuilt contacts will help users make phone calls at critical moments with a single tap.
 
Last month, the company integrated with video calling app Google Duo to allow users to make video calls directly through the Truecaller app.
