Today, version 8.0 of the app was unveiled from the venue of the company's first annual "Stay Ahead" event in India.

Truecaller also announced that a strategic agreement to integrate Google Duo, a video calling service, within the Truecaller app.

Truecaller is a very popular caller ID and database application out there for both iOS and Android. Initially, it will be a permission-based service, which means that the app has to ask the user if he or she would like to share certain details with the public.

Truecaller, one of the few hugely successful dialer apps, just announced a massive update to its services.

The app also gains a Flash messaging feature which allows users to send pre-defined messages for various things such as you've reached your destination safely, your location, a distress call or even an emoji.

Truecaller, one of the largest and most popular telecommunication apps in the world, has chose to introduce a new video calling feature in association with Google.

Amit Fulay, head of Duo at Google said, "With this Truecaller integration, we're able to bring a better video calling experience to millions of new users".

Truecaller now has a revamped logo, which the company says is "consistent with its ongoing commitment to provide safe and efficient experience for millions of mobile users". As long as your bank supports UPI, you'll be able to use Truecaller to send money.

Truecaller on Tuesday also announced a re-disgned Android app with features to filter out spam SMSes. It's supposed to send a flash SMS disclosing a caller's identity before their call hits a user's handset, thereby acting as a sort-of bridge between online functionality and offline devices. These include support for SMS inbox, flash messages and a one tap payment system called Truecaller Pay. It will be a subscription based service that will help users in avoiding unwanted calls (spam) without relying on the internet connection.

Customers of any bank can instantly start using "Truecaller Pay" with a one-time registration to create a new UPI ID or add an existing ICICI Bank virtual payment address (VPA). There are plenty of standalone apps that offer the same services as Truecaller, but by bundling them into a single app, the company is looking to make itself indispensable in India.

"Truecaller Pay" can be accessed conveniently via the "Send money through UPI" tab on Truecaller app's profile page.

This makes it the first time when Truecaller forays into financial services.
