Google Dialer May Soon Show WhatsApp Call Logs in the Phone App

Google Dialer might soon integrate WhatsApp call logs into Android smartphones. According to a recent leak, user @Kishore9196 spotted something unusual on their phone. Upon opening the call log, they noticed that the app had logged one of their WhatsApp calls.

This feature is particularly interesting because it could potentially merge VoIP calls from across the Android platform into a single log. This would include calls made through apps like Skype, Signal, Viber, etc. It’s important to note that rumors about this integration have been circulating for quite some time.

WhatsApp call log integration on Google’s Phone app

Last Year, a Reddit User Also Spotted a WhatsApp Call in the Phone App

Last year, a Reddit post seemingly showcased the very same thing. The user noticed one of their WhatsApp calls recorded in the Phone app. This could have been an early beta test version that Google rolled out for a limited time to a select group of people, or more likely, an accident.

Google has not yet commented on when they plan to release the update that integrates WhatsApp calls into the Dialer app. However, based on what has surfaced online, it appears Google is actively working on bringing this update to consumers.

Regarding the feature itself, calls made through the Google Phone app typically display the SIM name you’re using for the call. However, for VoIP calls, like those from WhatsApp, the app name appears below the number.

VoIP Integration May Not Affect ‘ALL’ Android Phones

It’s important to understand that this feature may not be available on all Android smartphones. It will only work on devices using the Google Phone app. Phones from manufacturers like Xiaomi, Samsung, and OnePlus typically come with their own proprietary dialer apps, and so they might not see the same integration, at least based on what we know now.

This is all we know for now, but rest assured that we will keep you updated as new information becomes available.
