Truecaller, which is mostly known for its Caller ID feature is now pivoting to the audio conversation segment with its new Open Doors app. This platform goes up against fellow apps such as Twitter Spaces, Clubhouse, and some more. Truecaller claims it wants to enter the world of private conversations and Open Doors is the platform for users to have the best experience.
Open Doors is available for both iOS and Android users and is free to use.
What is Open Doors and How it works?
Open Doors is just another app for private conversations, similar to Twitter Spaces and Clubhouse. According to the Trucaller, one can sign up for Open Doors via Truecaller access if you are a user, or else, one can verify the mobile number through OTP.
Open Doors asks the following permissions to work on your smartphone:
- Phone: To enable audio conversations
- Contacts: To connect with other people present in your contact list
Truecaller assures that the people in a conversation on Open Doors can’t see each other’s mobile numbers. Open Doors app currently supports English, Hindi, French, Spanish, and Latin as the languages on the app’s interface.
How Open Doors Works
Once you sign up for Open Doors, you can enter a private conversation at any time and leave. You can invite people by sharing the chat link with your friends, and then the app will invite other friends to the conversation. Truecaller says all the conversations are moderated, but the chats are not stored anywhere, and neither can someone listen to the conversation without the person knowing it.
It is interesting to see Trucaller bring this app at a time when other apps like Clubhouse seem to have lost traction, and many people use Twitter Spaces to have these conversations.
