Studies have shown that Millennials largely prefer to communicate and collaborate through the apps and devices that they use on a daily basis, and Line2, the business communicatons company out of San Francisco, has responded. The company has recently released a native calling experience for employees' second numbers that's fully integrated with iOS 10, meaning that Millennials can make work calls directly through their personal phones.
Increasingly, the home phone has become a relic of the past, with many Millennials vaguely remembering those handsets from their childhood. As such, the dedicated office phone increasingly feels archaic — Millennials tend to be far more comfortable using their mobile phones thanks to a familiar interface.
Line2's new functionality means that Millennial employees can use their personal cell phones as work phones, increasing the likelihood of effective communication and making the work experience easier.
