With the app Google Phone It is no longer necessary to look at the screen to know who is calling us. In the last few days he has been activating a new function that allows us to hear the name or number of the person who is calling us.

This new function is very useful if we usually carry headphones, since it will avoid having to take our mobile out of our pocket to know who is calling us. If your mobile comes standard with the official Google phone call application, we will tell you how to activate the new one caller ID announcement.


Announce caller ID

This feature comes after months of waiting. Leaked for the first time in September 2020, so that eight months later we can finally listen to who calls us from the Google phone dialer.

In the latest update of Google Phone (Beta) we will find the new option ‘Caller ID Announcement’ within the settings of the application. By default it is deactivated, but by clicking on ‘Announce caller ID’ we can choose to tell us forever out loud the ID of the incoming call or only when using headphones.

Once the announcement of the caller ID is activated, when we receive an incoming call, Google’s voice synthesis will tell us the phrase through the mobile speaker or headphones “incoming voice call from [contacto/número]” next to our ringtone. He will repeat the phrase until the mobile stops ringing.
