Truecaller recently introduced a Family Plan, which allows up to five users to use its premium services with a single subscription.
Truecaller will allow up to five family members to access its features such as checking profile views and advanced spam blocking on a single user account for Rs. 132 for a monthly membership or Rs. 925 for a yearly pack. The service is currently only available to Android users in the United States. Its release date for iOS users is currently unknown.
“The Family Plan is the most recent way to obtain Truecaller Premium. You can choose who you want in your ‘family’ with Family Plan. We’re saying that if your bestie is like a brother to you, they should be included in your family plan! Simply select four people and add them to your subscription,” said the Swedish caller ID app in an official statement.

Truecaller, which was launched in 2009, allows users to be notified before a phone call rings, as well as see if the call is from a spam number.
The call identification app has 300 million monthly active users, with 73 percent of its users in India, where it continues to release new features in order to retain its user base.
Truecaller launched a ‘government directory’ feature in India last week to connect Indians with verified government officials.
To comply with Google’s PlayStore policies, the platform recently removed its ‘call record’ feature.
Truecaller, which currently displays the names of unsaved numbers saved by crowd sources, may soon have to change this feature to comply with expected changes in Indian regulations.
In the coming days, India’s telecom regulator, the TRAI, has asked the public to submit suggestions on whether caller ID apps like Truecaller should display the actual, SIM-registered names of the callers.
The public can submit comments on the paper to the regulator by December 27, with counter-comments due by January 10, 2023.
