“Filter Spam Calls” feature in the Android

I noticed that on my Android phone app there are two sections (in Settings) under the heading "Caller ID and Spam". One is "See caller ID and Spam numbers" and it is turned on (by default I think). The other is "Filter Spam Calls" and it is turned off.

Is that a good feature to use and enable, or will it compromise privacy by sending even more information about the nature of one’s calls and contacts (and other personal information) to Google?

I must say that overall the Call Screening, Caller ID and Spam features have worked really well for me and saved me a lot of grief when it comes to robo calls and just general spam.

I’m just not sure about the "Filter Spam Calls"…or even why it is turned off…
