Facebook Introduces “Hello,” a Dialer App for Android

Hello? Anyone there? Facebook on Wednesday introduced a new voice-calling app for Android phones called "Hello".

With incoming calls, Facebook can show you information that is being shared via profiles on Facebook, at least that’s my understanding. Chances are that people calling will be sharing some form of information, so this could be a pretty solid and free see-who-is-calling option. With people and places searching, the listings show you numbers, if the person/place has free calling through Messenger, and give you quick access to directions. As for call blocking, a simple button press allows you to block unwanted solicitors.

The stand-alone app is the seventh child of Facebook Creative Labs, the company's arm tasked with creating new applications outside of Facebook.

Hello's aim is to give people more information about who is calling them. Because it's connected to Facebook, Hello users can see information about their callers' identity even if they don't count them as a contact.

Hello is currently available in the US, Brazil and Nigeria.
