UAE launches new mobile service that displays identities of private companies
New feature will recognise caller's ID even if number is not saved on the mobile phone
The Telecommunications and the Digital Government Regulatory Authority (TDRA) has initiated a new feature that will identify the caller’s name – landline or mobile number – of private companies on mobile phones.
Taking to social media TDRA posted a video : “Now, #Kashif is available for all!”
The post also stated that: “The service will be applied on a gradual basis during the coming period,”
The Kashif initiative will recognise the incoming caller's ID even if the number is not saved on the mobile phone.
The new feature will reduce the number of anonymous calls received by the residents and provide information of the caller’s contact before responding to the incoming call.
