Unlike before, the new option has now moved to the main Settings page with the update. The feature appears as a new setting called “Caller ID announcement” in the Google Phone app. In order to enable/ disable this option, simply tap “Announce caller ID” under the device’s Settings app.

As mentioned, after enabling, your device will announce the caller’s name or phone number for all incoming calls. Though this is not something new, it is still an appreciable feature to have. Announcing Caller ID helps you quickly decide whether to answer a call or not, that too without looking at the phone.

Last month, Google also introduced a feature where calls from unknown numbers will record automatically. Following this is the new Caller ID feature. Let’s see what the future updates have stored for us.
