CyanogenMod 10.2 Coming With “Global Blacklist” Feature


CyanogenMod 10.2 is gearing up for release, and according to a Google+ post by David Van Tonder, it will be arriving with a new feature called “Global Blacklist”.

So what does this do? Simply put, it allow users to block text messages or calls or both, a feature which we believe will be useful to everyone. It has a Holo compliant interface and can be configured via Messaging, Phone and Settings.

To do the blocking, you will be able to either type the numbers or select them from your address book. You can also block numbers from the in-call screen, the call history screen, the quick reply popup and the Conversation screen in the Messaging app. And you can select the type of blocking (texts or calls). You can also whitelist a number if you want for receiving calls or texts or both.

Global Blacklist will also be available to third party apps via a “content provider API”.

What do you think, is Global Blacklist a feature you could see yourself using?
