Google starts rolling out new Spam protection feature for Android phone users

Google обновила свое фирменное приложение

One of the biggest issues that we face in this smartphone world is Spam call and Messages. Spam protection can't be a bad thing, can it? That contrasts spam reports manually sent by users to Google, which include the full message sent by the spammer (plus, a copy may be sent to mobile carriers as well). "Spam protection" soon after opening the Android Messages App. If you're an avid Messages user, you'll undoubtedly see the feature the day it becomes available to you. The American Corporation immediately after updating the app warns that a new opportunity can sometimes not work correctly, because its use can lead to false positives, which are real SMS, not spam, will cease to be correctly displayed.

As reported by Android Police, the new spam-protection feature in Android Messages is server-sided, meaning that users don't need to update the app to a newer version.

The feature can be turned off in the Advanced section of Settings, under "Spam protection". If you don't want to do that, you can simply block a phone number without reporting it as spam. "When it does hit your device, you should see a notification similar to that above when launching Messages", the report added.

Data about spam messages is to improve the search engine giant's ability to "detect future spam for users". Following up on its impressive call screening feature for Pixel phones, the Android Messages app now appears to be getting updated with a new feature called "spam protection".

When you turn on the spam protection feature in Messages, the content of the messages you receive and the sender's number will be shared with Google for the analysis.
