The good news is that Google has now rolled out an official update for Android powered devices that will warn you as soon as spam callers call your number. The bad news is that this update and the ensuing features are only available to Android One and Nexus devices. We bet hardcore Google loyalists are feeling pretty smug right now!
Google posted the following via its own social media website, Google+.
"Spam callers be gone! Today, we're beginning to update your Google Phone app with spam protection on #Nexus and #Android One devices to warn you about potential spam callers,"
Spam Protection should become effective as soon as you download and install the update but in order to use the feature, you will have to have Called ID turned on from the settings menu of your phone. In addition to providing protection against the spammers, there will also be an option to report the shady numbers as spam. You can simply block the number from the app itself if they continue to bother you with repeated phone calls.
