Google Working on Lookup Button on Android to Identify Unknown Callers

| Updated on 8 April 2024

A new report pointed out that Google is working on a lookup button that would help users identify the unknown callers who have contacted them. 

This feature is so simple that I was wondering why it was not part of the Android for so long. It’s just a way to look up a phone number that just called you. An X user found this feature in a beta build of the phone app on Android. 

The new lookup button, right in the phone app, when tapped, brings up the Google search of the number you want to look up. 

While stock Android devices like Google Pixel and some Motorola phones have Google Phone App as the default app, other Android owners can download the app from the Play Store. 

The new Lookup button in the Google Phone App lives right next to the Block and History option that you see when you tap on the phone icon right next to the number. In a day and age when privacy is a real issue, this feature is a godsend. But I think it’s a bit too late. 

It is very painful to copy the number from the phone app to search for them on the web or through other means. Now, the option to search is right there on your fingertip.

In other updates, Google is also planning to integrate Gemini email summaries into the Android version of the Gmail App. Although this feature is still in the early stages of its development, hopefully, it will be able to provide concise summaries with just a tap.
