Owners of a Nexus or Android One smartphone can now benefit from spam caller protection, as a new update to the Google Phone app means you'll be warned about spammers going forward.

You're also able to block and report such numbers: to do so, open the Phone app, go to Recent Calls, tap whichever call you want, and tap Block / Report Spam.

Assuming you have Caller ID enabled and the Google Phone app is updated, spam protection is already enabled and working.
