The launch of the Bengaluru office marks a significant milestone in Truecaller’s journey in India. Since its entry in the country a decade ago, Truecaller has today grown to 338 million monthly active users, of which about 246 million are from India. Crucial to its growth and innovation capabilities, India presents unique opportunities to launch new products and services on the Truecaller platform and obtain feedback to improve solutions further.
