Truecaller has launched a new app for Android and iOS devices named Open Doors, which appears to be similar to the audio social app Clubhouse. The app is a communication platform that can be used by both existing Truecaller users and new users to start and join audio conversations. These audio conversations will then invite more people through what Truecaller calls, the ‘network effect’.

Once your friend joins a conversation,

their friends will also be invited, and this cycle will continue. Note that these conversations will, however, be moderated in real-time, although Truecaller notes that the conversation data itself is not stored.

What’s interesting here is that participants in a conversation cannot see each other’s phone numbers, with only the names and profile pictures visible during a conversation. Users are also in complete control over their personal data as the app requires only two permissions – contacts (to help you connect with those in your address book) and phone (to allow audio conversations).

Truecaller was quick to point out that the app scans your contact library locally and none of the data is transferred to its servers.

Open Doors offers an easy way to delete the account.

“Thanks to Truecaller being 13 years in the business, we’ve spent a great deal of time learning about how people communicate. One of the reasons that we built this app was that we built something similar in Truecaller in 2018. But it was just a demo, and we never launched it,” Nami Zarringhalam, co-founder of True Software, Truecaller’s parent company, told TechCrunch in an interview.

Other options embody management over your contacts being alerted each time you take part a dialog and reacting to what different individuals are saying. The app may even provide exact management over the way it notifies customers of the latest Open Doorways conversations.

Open Doorways is totally free and shall be obtainable on each the Google Play Retailer and the Apple App Retailer. Truecaller additionally claims the app expertise is seamless throughout each platform.

Truecaller offers two more apps.

To get began with Open Doorways, Truecaller customers can merely log in with a single faucet, whereas new customers can bind their telephone numbers with the app and confirm it with a missed name or OTP. The app is presently obtainable in English, Hindi, Spanish, French, and Latin. Truecaller has mentioned it could add extra languages to the interface in a while if required by customers.

The company’s unique selling point is in its name. Open Doors, essentially, has fewer structural roadblocks than Clubhouse or Twitter Spaces: no rooms, no invites, no recording tools, nor even extensive moderation features.

You sign up on the app through your phone number by getting a one-time password (OTP), or sign in through your existing Truecaller account, and go.
