Table of Contents
Airtel is now offering a new smart missed call alert feature that notifies customers when their friends or family members miss call them. A customer has to register their phone number with Airtel and they will get a missed call alert on their registered number. The alert message contains details of caller, who called and what time was it made?. After getting missed call alerts, customers can decide if they want to call back or ignore it by simply replying with an SMS to that specific number. This new feature also works in case of calls made by tele-marketers, which consumers normally tend to ignore. But since it is being notified by a missed call alert, they would be more likely to pay attention to these calls and can choose whether or not they want to return them.
How it works
Airtel customers will not have to worry about missing out on their calls anymore. Airtel has launched smart missed call alert feature, which enables customers to know when their contacts are trying to reach them even if they don’t answer.
Customers can set call alert preferences for incoming calls with options of being notified through a missed call, text message or both. Each time a customer receives an incoming call, they can decide whether or not to take it. If they choose not to take it, customers will get an SMS alert with details of who called and how long ago as well as whether they chose to take it or send them straight to voicemail.
Airtel’s new app alerts you on your smartphone with a missed call alert, but only when you are using its network. So, if you are not on Airtel network and someone makes a call to your number, then it will not be notified. In addition, Airtel’s free smart missed call alert feature works only with 3G/4G-enabled smartphones. If you don’t have any data connection or if your phone is in flight mode, then it won’t work. The biggest limitation is that Jio’s smart features works on most of Android and iOS smartphones.
In a bid to compete with Jio, Airtel has launched a smart missed call alert feature that lets you know whether your called party is busy. For now, the service will be available on Apple iOS and Android devices but will soon be made available on other phones as well. The Jio-effect seems to be spilling over even after Reliance Jio has been offering its services for six months at least in some circles. On Friday, January 12, 2017, Airtel launched its smart missed call alert feature across India that allows subscribers to know whether their calls have been received by called parties or not. In fact, subscribers can see exactly when they have been sent a missed call and get an alert straight away if somebody declines receiving it too.
