Google Voice for Android and iOS highlights suspected spam texts

Similar to its “suspected spam caller warnings,” Google Voice has launched a new function, except this time it’s for SMS messages. Now that it’s live, users of Android and iOS devices can utilize this function to get notifications when messages may be spam. A red exclamation point will display in place of the profile avatar when a message is thought to be spam, and the message preview will also feature the term “Suspected spam” in a similar color for quick identification.

“If you use Google Voice, you’re familiar with our suspected spam caller warnings,” Google wrote in a blog post. This capability is now available for SMS texts on Android and iOS smartphones.

Users have two choices after seeing these labels in the message:

They can either classify a message as not spam to remove the suspected spam label from it or they can confirm a suspected spam message, which will move any further communications from that number directly to the spam folder.

Users of both free and paid Google Voice accounts, including those on the Starter, Standard, and Premier plans, will be able to access the anti-spam text features. The progressive distribution of this function is now taking place, and it is anticipated that it will be widely accessible soon.

Additionally, Google has begun pushing out its AI-powered “Proofread” function for Gboard beta testers. Users may instantly get their content reviewed for spelling or grammar mistakes with Gboard version 13.4, which is currently available in beta on Android. Users will see a ‘Fix it’ prompt when a potential issue is found.

If users choose to use the feature, the proofreading function sends the content to Google for processing. This AI-driven function attempts to improve users’ ability to compose messages on mobile devices by assisting with their grammar and spelling.

These upgrades are a reflection of Google’s ongoing efforts to enhance the functionality of its many services and applications and to enhance user experiences.
