Hiya, earlier known as Whitepages Caller Id. It shows the caller details from the millions of phone numbers stored in its database. This app is rich in design, just like Truecaller. The best part of Hiya app is that it is ads free unlike Truecaller.

Hiya also has a dedicated news section where it will show news related to Hiya and about spam calls. This feature is not available in the Truecaller app. If you compare Truecaller vs Hiya then Hiya also has a personal assistant which will take care of the unknown callers on your behalf. But you won’t find assistant like this in Truecaller.
