Death to Robocalls
Picture this: It’s 6:30 p.m., you’re home from work and you’re sitting with your loving family about to eat dinner and talk about your days.
You’re starting to unwind. You’re feeling peaceful. You’re ready to relax for the evening.
All of a sudden, out of nowhere your pocket starts buzzing and you hear a RING! RING! RING!
Mood shattered. The number isn’t saved in your phone. Mood worsens. You let it ring. They hang up and call back. Mood destroyed.
The anxiety of who might be calling has seeped into your evening and suddenly you just can’t concentrate on what your family is saying anymore.
Sounds awful, right?
Well, it doesn’t have to be this way anymore. And you can profit on the solution…
Call Screen Saves Families
Robocalls are such an overwhelming issue that even the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is cracking down. The FCC has been enforcing the Telephone Consumer Protection Act since 1991 in an attempt to protect our privacy and our time.
According to The Wall Street Journal, “Since 2015, the FCC has ordered violators of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, a law governing telemarketing and robodialing, to pay $208.4 million.”
Google Pixel has been working on filling in the gaps. In December of last year they launched a Call Screen feature that could revolutionize the way we answer our phones.
The Call Screen feature uses Google Assistant to take the call for you.
When a call comes in the choice to screen the call comes up on your device’s screen. Once you’ve chosen to do so, Google Assistant comes on the line and takes care of the rest.
Whoever is calling will be notified that the call is being screened and that the person they’re calling will get a copy of the conversation.
At this point you’ll start to receive a transcription of the conversation. You’ll be able to choose responses for Google Assistant if you’d like more clarity. These features are designed to help you figure out if it’s a robocall so that you can act accordingly.
You can even tell the caller to call you back via the response feature.
And you get to decide if you’d like to save the transcript or discard it if it’s of no use to you.
They really thought of everything.
Currently it’s only available on Google’s Pixel 3 and 3 XL smartphone devices, but tech speculators and gurus (myself included) believe expansion is coming.
And it’s going to get way bigger than that.
This is great news for you tech investors.
Big Partnerships, Big Gains
Google’s parent company, Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOGL) has a history of partnering up with and buying out other bigwigs. Those power moves have been driving their share prices up accordingly.
The price of Google was averaging around $95 in the beginning of 2005 when Google bought Android Inc.
By the time we rang in the 2007 and Google unveiled Android phones the share prices had risen between $230 and $250. In short, that acquisition was revolutionary.
As Google continues with their innovative ways, their share prices continue to soar.
The investors that jumped on the train back in 2004 when the company share prices were low are now prospering as the stock reaches prices around $1,200 per share.
The rumor floating around right now is that Google is looking to spread the Call Screen feature to Nokia and Motorola smartphones.
As this tech spreads, it will only mean profits for the companies involved.
Because, bottom line, no one wants to be disrupted by a robocall or a telemarketer.
Invest in the solution. Profit from the inevitable breakout it causes.
