Newly released information on XDA-Developers pages indicates that Android P can bring a new feature into its standard phone application.

It will allow you to block all incoming calls from any phone that is not in your phone book. What’s more interesting is that it’s fine tuning will allow maximum flexibility in communication while protecting users from unwanted calls.

According to the strings, you can block phone numbers in the following contexts:
– The phone number is not in your contacts list
– The phone number is not disclosed by the caller (Private)
– The phone number is from a pay phone
– The phone number does not have any caller ID information (Unknown/Unidentified)

This feature will not apply to emergency numbers, so if you call and then return a call, you will accept it.

Finally, it is possible for your mobile operator to opt out of some of these criteria and instead try to offer you as an additional service.

Ultimately, this would be a great change to Android. Although there are many free call blocking apps on the Play Store, you are basically trusting that the app isn’t doing anything with your call history. With a built in feature, you wouldn’t have to worry about that. Post from: GizBrain. Source: XDA-Developers
