Truecaller has introduced a new group chat feature into its app. The privacy-focused focused group chat is going to let the users chat and share photos and videos.

In this new feature, the phone numbers of the participants are automatically hidden in the group unless and until other members have each other’s phone numbers saved in their contact list, or unless they send a contact request for asking the permission to see the phone number of the user.

Apart from this, members of the groups will also be able to see the Truecaller profile of the other participants and get to know who are they doing the conversation with.
