Decoding the missed call alert feature in the Airtel Thanks app
Mobile phones connect us 24*7 with our loved ones, family, and work colleagues. Thanks to advanced cellular technology, we can connect with a person sitting at the other end of the world in no time. But, it happens more than often that our connection is lost due to technical issues.
In such cases, you may miss important work or personal calls! These calls are categorized as missed calls. The network operators provide a feature called missed call alerts. Post-activation quality alerts a phone number about all the calls missed by the user when not connected to an active network. It can be activated using a USSD code on your number.
The present feature to activate such a feature is not well-known to the users. So, what if a missed call alert feature is linked to a mobile app?
Now activate the missed call alert feature right from the Airtel Thanks app.
Airtel has launched its newest feature, Missed Call Alerts, in its own Airtel Thanks app for its users. You will now have a clean log of all the missed calls on the app.
The Airtel Thanks app is a nifty app that also acts as a UPI payment app, recharge app, bill payment app, etc. Now it will alert you for your missed calls too!
What is Airtel Thanks ‘Missed Call Alerts’ feature?
It is a service that will send users an alert for all the calls they have missed when they are not latched on to an active network/s.
There are two situations when users are not latched on to a network.
- When the user’s phone is switched off (if the cell phone runs out of battery or the user switches the phone off voluntarily)
- If a user is traveling and is in an area with no network coverage (often happens when in trains)
- The user’s phone is in flight mode (when traveling via air)
In the above scenarios, it is a high possibility that you can miss an important call from work or an urgent call from home. The Missed Call Alert feature will notify you about such calls in a network zone on the Airtel Thanks app.
