Google is continuing to integrate its Google+ into its Android OS, and from next year, when you telephone an Android device from a Google+ verified phone number, your Google+ profile photo will appear on the handset you are calling.
If you have verified your phone number on your Google account, when you phone one of your friend on an Android device, it will automatically show them your Google+ photo.
This is the coolest part of the new Caller ID by Google feature my team worked on, and we’re finally announcing it for early 2014:
“Coming in early 2014, users who have verified their phone number and have discovery turned on will have their names and Google Profile photos display whenever they call you, or you call them (it’s great if a new friend who hasn’t been saved in your contacts yet calls you). Check your Google Account to make sure you are happy with how you appear on caller ID by Google: http://goo.gl/g9P3Bp ”
Of course everyone may not want to use this feature, and you will be able to choose whether or not to use the feature when it is introduced next year.
