Facebook launched Hello, a brand new app and calls from unknown numbers will no longer be a mystery. The app is available only for Android phones, and when it comes to iOS, the apps cannot interact with calls.
Hello will tell you who is calling you, because it will immediately match the number to the particular Facebook profile.

This app will work only if the person who is calling you shared its phone number on this social network, and if you are allowed to see that info. It is like with all your other posts and information. If everyone can see your phone number, which means it is shared publicly, every person, even the one who is not your Facebook friend, will know you are calling thanks to the Hello app.
If you shared your info with your Facebook friends only, including your phone number, then only the friends will know you are calling. Also, you can block phone numbers with ease, and certain people won’t be able to call you.
Hello app is available only for Android users in the United States, Nigeria and Brazil for now. In the upcoming weeks, many other countries will be able to use it as well.
As any other app, you need to download it, install it, and sign in with your Facebook. The app has several features, such as Synced phone book, Caller ID, Free VOIP calls, Call Blocking, and Business search.
With this cool app, you will know who is calling, so you can pick up or send the caller to voicemail.
