The app also has a complete design refresh and user experience flow that results in shorter initial onboarding times and quicker day-to-day navigation through the app.

The company said that it will soon bring major improvements in SMS filtering, spam detection, and community-based services, including a redesigned number look-up widget to search for unknown callers even faster.
