While Congress grills Silicon Valley’s most lifeless Jello Jiggler today, the folks over at 9to5Google noticed that Google’s dialer app for Pixel and other stock Android phones has been upgraded with the ability to send spam calls straight to voicemail.

The added functionality is an improvement to the Phone app’s existing spam call protection, which turns the screen red and alerts users anytime the phone detects an incoming spam or robocall. But for those who opt into the Phone app beta program, the new feature won’t even bother ringing your handset at all, and instead will immediately forward the spam call to voicemail.
