In the world of Robot call today, while the mobile phone companies are still working on a Robot call screening scheme, we are scrambling to find tools to protect from the nuisance robot calls.

 

The Goggle Pixel 4 comes with Android 10 which has its own Call Screening feature.  On my previous phones I had to use one of the 3rd party app to do the call screening for me.  On this google phone I was surprised to see the incoming call is being screened and presented to me as:

Call screening pop up, click the "Screen Call" for screening optionCall screening pop up, click the "Screen Call" for screening option

 

Of course if the phone call from someone in your phone book, you will see the caller's name displayed. When you click "Screen call" you will be presented with various options to deal with the call:

At the end you can report this caller so Google can build up its database of spam callers for future calls.

 

Hopefully, with Google and the phone companies working together we will be in a robot call free world, that will be a blessing!

 

Enjoy & Bye for now.
