YouMail Adds Anti-Robocall Tools to Android App
Mar 16, 2012, 12:36 PM by Eric M. Zeman
YouMail today updated its Android application with a number of new features. The key new capability of the application is the ability to permanently block unwanted calls from telemarketers, robocalls, and spammers. Android YouMail users can choose to "ditch" a call with one tap. Once ditched, calls from that number are no longer visible or ring the phone, they cannot leave a message, and the caller hears a greeting that the current number is out of service. YouMail says that its customers have reported numerous spammers, which will be identified as such if they call a YouMail subscriber. The service works with either the YouMail Visual Voicemail Plus or WhoAreYou apps for Android devices, which are available for download from Google Play.
