The new Android app from Facebook, Hello, is receiving a lot of interest from users. The new phone dialer app has been released as a competitor to the free-call feature released by WhatsApp.
It allows users to make free calls over WiFi network. But are many features that give the new app several advantages. In fact, it relies on Facebook’s trove of user information and promises to offer a better experience.
Most importantly, the new Hello app can use Facebook’s user database for identifying callers. You will be able to know the name and other “public” information about the caller. It is not essential to have the user as your friend on the social site or in your contacts list. It will display only the publicly shared information about such users.
Another advantage of using Hello is that it helps you prevent unwanted phone calls. Besides, there is a search feature that helps you find the phone numbers of local businesses.
Whenever you miss a call, you could respond using Messenger. Besides WhatsApp, Facebook has a competitor in the Hangouts dialer from Google. The app will allow free calls for the time being. The social network has confirmed that it doesn’t intend to generate any direct revenue from it. Users can download it from the Play Store.
