The 10 Best Dialer Apps for Android
A modern smartphone might have a ton of features, but making phone calls is still one of its primary functions. And, for that, you need a dialer app.
Stock dialers are not always feature-rich. Besides, you might just be tired of using the same app. The good news is that you can install third-party apps that offer some additional features, along with giving your dialer a new look. So, let’s look at the ten best dialer apps for Android on Google Play.
1. Phone by Google
When it comes to providing a solution to its users, Google always comes up with something good, and its feature-rich Phone by Google app is the default dialer on many Android devices.
This app allows you to block spam calls, and it identifies unknown callers with Google’s Caller ID. You can also listen to your voicemails and delete them quickly from within the app. With its emergency contact feature, you can send your current location and details to others.
You can even record calls with Phone by Google in some locations. Before trying this feature, it’s best to first check whether call recording is legal in your region. This dialer app is free. Though some of its features, such as Caller ID information, are only available in certain countries.
