Moreover, Google says that the feature is on by default, Google also outlines a few limitations on its support page.
The first point is that Verified Calls relies only on businesses providing information to Google. These words mean not all calls without the verified badge indicates necessarily be spam. Google also states the setting only works on the Google Phone app, which shows it won’t be accessible on every Android phone. It also depends on you to add your phone number to your Google account. Google says after verifying your phone number, it will delete your phone number and the reason for a call “within minutes.”
