Truemessenger, which will follow in other markets after India, seeks to curb spam messages by identifying numbers in the SMS inbox.
"Truecaller identifies 900 calls a month and one in seven calls are spam. We are looking to provide the same experience in texts with the new Truemessenger app," Truecaller India head Kari Krishnamurthy said.
Truecaller has currently over 80 million users in India, while its global user base is near 180 million.
"India is the number one market for us and we are also looking to double our team in India. Truecaller has 10 people working out of Bengaluru and Gurgaon," Krishnamurthy added.
