Hiya Extends Partnership with Samsung to Bring its Leading Caller and Business Profile Services to the Note 8

From Pizza to Nightlife, Hiya Reveals Top Local Mobile Business Search Activity From Within the Phone's Dialer

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - August 23, 2017) - Hiya, the leading source for caller profile and business profile services, today announced that it has extended its partnership with Samsung to include the integration of its caller ID, spam detection and business search services into the Galaxy Note 8. Available in 28 countries, users of the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S8, Note 8 and all A-Series and J-series devices will now benefit from the experience that Hiya Business Profiles provides on Samsung Places.

"Most mobile business searches originate on web search or third-party apps even when the intent is to place a call," said Mayur Kamat, VP Product at Hiya. "Hiya and Samsung are working on reinventing the Dialer, making it the best way to search for and call anyone -- your friends, your neighborhood business or your airline. Whether you want to find the best place to grab a bite, or a restaurant that is open past midnight, you can now do so right from within the Note 8, A-Series and J-Series' Phone apps."

With only five months on the market, millions of users are already taking advantage of Samsung Places and changing their behavior toward how they interact with the phone's dialer as they search for and place calls to local and national businesses. To gain a better sense of how consumers are utilizing Samsung Places, Hiya analyzed Samsung Places data for the most popular search categories, terms, and brands, in addition to most active users by country.
