Robocalls! Even the word sounds annoying, right? According to one research firm, they were up by 58 percent in 2018. Well hope is on the horizon! Verizon plans to introduce a free app that will block those nasty phone calls within the next few weeks.
The company already offers a paid version for $2.99 per month, but this app will be free. The app will compare the number calling with known robocall numbers. It will kill the call of a match comes up.
Verizon plans to release information on how to download and use the app within a few weeks. Verizon’s app will compete with Nomorobo and RoboKiller which are apps that offer a free trial period then request a monthly fee. Anything that helps solve this madness can’t be all bad, right?
