Social networking giant Facebook is expected to soon introduce a new caller ID-based application which will allow the users to know beforehand who is calling and choose whether to answer the call or not. With the app, the users can also opt for automatically blocking of the unwarranted calls.
The new application, which has been dubbed Phone, would be a new entry to Facebook’s lengthy gamut of offshoot applications that include Home, Messenger, Groups, Rooms, Slingshot and several others.
According to the reports, the caller info provided by the new app would include data that would be pulled from the vast Facebook network of friends, people and businesses.
The social networking company has, however, not officially confirmed the news and therefore there is not much info about the new app in the public domain.
But the reports suggest that the new app is likely in the internal testing phase as several users experienced that they landed on a blank page when they tapped on the Facebook Phone link.
Currently, calling capabilities are available on Facebook Messenger. And the feature is about to be brought on the platform of Facebook-owned WhatsApp too.
