In the screenshots, it pointed to an app that was known as ID & Filter, where it offers the aforementioned functions. The app itself came with a description, “ID & Filter provides info about numbers known to send spam, and shows caller ID info about businesses who contact you.” In addition, ID & Filter will also enable the user to block calls from a specific category of business, ranging from the likes of advertising, real estate, couriers, finance, and taxi, among others. Pretty neat way of managing your personal life, don’t you think so?

It remains to be seen as to when this app will roll out for Windows 10 Mobile users, although one would not rule out the possibility that those who are part of the Insider program should be able to be the first in the group to enjoy such an experience.
