Here’s a brief description of the new Truecaller features:
Urgent messages: According to Truecaller, the new feature allows users to send “critical or time-sensitive messages” with a custom notification. The ‘urgent message’ will appear on the recipient’s screen in high visibility, even if another app is open, it will not disappear until the recipient reads it.

Edit sent chat messages: This feature allows users to edit/change the chat message even after the recipient has viewed it. If a message is edited, the recipient will see ‘Chat (edit)’. Users can edit chat messages at any time after sending a message. It’s worth noting that this new editing feature is only available for Truecaller Chat, not SMS.
Set Default Home Screen: After the update, Truecaller users can now choose the default view of the app when it first launches. With a simple long press on the Calls or Messages tab, this can be set as the default view. The next time the app is opened, it will open by default.
Smart SMS experience: This new feature on Truecaller allows users to keep messages organized, similar to SMS organizer. It has the visibility of all important messages, which will be much easier thanks to smart filters such as transactions, deliveries, trips, bills, etc. The company explains: “Since most text messages are one-way incoming messages, we present all important messages chronologically, making discovering important messages much easier so that users don’t have to go in and out of different SMS threads to read each new SMS. You can also filter by top senders”.
