Google Voice Can Now Flag Suspected Spam Calls

From CNET: Google Voice users shouldn't have to worry about spam phone calls for much longer. Google said on Thursday that Google Voice will now label calls that are believed to be spam with a "suspected spam caller" label. 

To figure out which calls should be flagged, Google is using the same artificial intelligence that powers similar features on its other phone calling apps, the company said in a blog post.

The new spam labels coming to Google Voice will appear on incoming calls and in a user's call history. Confirming a labeled call as spam will cause future calls from that number to be sent straight to voicemail. 

Call history entries from that number will also be moved to your spam folder. Users can also flag when Google has mistakenly labeled a call as spam to prevent that label from showing up on future calls from that number.
