Truecaller, the popular caller ID app, has launched Truecaller Backup for Android, a new feature which allows users to backup and restore their contacts, call history, block list, and settings.

The feature comes in handy when you’re switching to a new phone, getting a new SIM card, or resetting your device. Truecaller Backup simplifies transition to a new phone without losing contacts, call logs, etc.

Initially, the backup will be hosted only on Google Drive but the company has shared that it plans to expand the options to other backup storage in a near future. Users can customize the frequency of backup between daily, weekly, monthly, and on-demand.

The Truecaller Backup for Android feature is rolled out already, and will be available to users in a phased manner over the next couple of days.
