Facebook Dialer breaking cover on Android soon

Facebook Dialer

According to a new leak, Facebook is looking to launch something known as the Facebook Dialer for Android. It will be quite similar to Truecaller as far as functionality is concerned, and will allow users to monitor calls and block unwanted spam phone calls.

This will be Facebook’s second attempt to get system level access to your devices, as it tried a home screen launcher called Facebook Home a couple of years ago, which unfortunately didn’t have the sort of impact they expected.

It seems like this feature is still under testing over at Facebook, so it could be some distance away from a widespread release. But as the screenshot rightly puts it, the app is currently FB only. Although Facebook hasn’t mentioned when the feature will be available, it has confirmed its existence by saying – “We are always testing things and have nothing to announce at this time.”

Do you think you could use a feature like this on your smartphone in lieu of other popular call monitoring apps? Sound off below.
