One of the best things about Android is its complete freedom. If you want your smartphone to say the name of the caller, you can do so with the best call name announcer apps for Android with ease. A point to be noted here is that Android smartphones from any manufacturer do come with this capability natively.
The option can be turned on from the accessibility menu in the settings, if it’s not there you don’t have to worry about it that much, you can easily download one of these best call name announcer apps for Android and be done with it.
There can be numerous reasons why you would want a call name announcer app for Android, maybe you work in a busy kitchen and you want to know who is calling without having to look at your smartphone. Perhaps you are a mechanic whose hands are always busy and greasy, so you would want to know who is calling without having to touch your smartphone at all.
These apps make everything easier without draining your battery life or hogging all the resources. They only get activated when the call comes and they don’t even need an active Internet connection to announce the name.
Note: The 4 best call name announcer apps for Android were tested on a Sony Xperia Z smartphone. They worked well with Western names and there were no problems with the announcements. The apps don’t need an active Internet connection to work and are not in any particular order.
Auto Caller Name Announcer
Auto Caller Name Announcer will read out the incoming caller name for you. It will even read out the SMS sender name as well as read the SMS content for you. This is a highly useful feature for a lot of people, especially those who like to have full control over their vehicle while driving.
There are 3 audio settings that you can manipulate to achieve the desired effect. Speak volumes settings allow you to change the volume of the announcement, the sound pitch setting gives you control over the pitch of the sound so if you want it lighter or heavier, you can make it so.
One good feature is the speak speed setting that gives you the option of slowing down the announcement if you are having trouble comprehending it. One funny feature I really liked is the ability to add some text before or after the caller name, for example you can make the app say, “My lord! Shelly Clark is Calling”.Show Downloads
Z’s Caller Name Announcer
This is an easy to use call name announcer app that uses a great text to speech system to announce caller name or SMS sender name. One great feature of this app is its ability to announce the app that causes a notification to pop up.
For example, if you’re waiting for a Facebook messenger message, you can set the app up so it announces whenever you get a message. The app also makes it easy to setup everything you want, there is a simple set up that only serves the purpose of turning on or off the voice announcements.
The advanced set up helps you customize the voice announcements through contacts, apps for notifications, times, SMS and even some modes. You can even make the app announce the battery level when it gets low.Show Downloads
Caller Name Announcer
Caller Name Announcer is a straight forward app that gives you clear settings. I really like how the settings are displayed, there is the setting name with a distinct switch on the right and underneath it is the explanation. This makes it a lot easier to setup the app as you want. Just don’t be put off by the broken English both in the app store page and the app itself, it is completely understandable though.
With the expanded settings menu, you can customize how the app behaves. If the number is in your contact list, the app will announce the name but if it isn’t, it will be announced as an unknown caller.
The app can also announce the SMS sender name as well as content of the message, if you have enabled that setting. I also like the option of selecting the delay time between announcements.Show Downloads
Incoming-Caller Name Announcer and talker
Out of all the call name announcer apps for Android I tested, this one has the best interface. This is simply because it uses the material design interface that many of the Android apps use already and this makes it extremely familiar to navigate and use.
I also like how the app gives you tabs for general settings as well as language settings. While not all of the languages are supported, there is still a healthy selection of them available. From changing how the announcement sounds to how loud it is, everything is presented in a clear way.
Overall, I’m happy with the level of customization all of the apps give on the list, this one just presents them in a familiar way.Show Downloads
These were the 4 best call name announcer apps for Android. I hope they will help you in answering important calls with ease and make your life that much better in some way.
I’ve already explained that this feature is almost always available as a native feature and can be turned on in the Accessibility menu of your settings. However, the apps make it a bit more customizable and easier to turn on or off.
