What Is A Call Whisper?

A call whisper is a short message that quickly plays as a phone call is answered, right before the caller begins speaking. A call whisper, also called “call screening,” can help you delineate between work calls and personal calls, and even help with lead generation. Phone calls are often the go-to for reliable, yet quick communication, but additional features, like a call whisper, can improve their functionality. 

Double Phones

As cell phones were introduced and evolved along with the rest of business and technology, the convenience of having a phone in your own pocket became clear. More people began to step away from traditional landline phones and personal, as well as work calls, were being directed to personal cell phones that could now include additional communication, like text messaging and emails

The first solution, before the call whisper feature was introduced, had businesses registering a “second” or “business phone” for employees. This was to create a clear differentiation between a “work” and a “personal” phone call. Before a call whisper feature was added, employees knew that if the “work” phone rang, it was work-related, and to prepare accordingly. 

This undoubtedly became a hefty expense for businesses to provide employees with a separate phone just for work. Between the cost of the phone itself and the phone service bill, businesses were spending portions of their budget just to keep work and personal phone calls separate. A call whisper quickly became the obvious solution to this new issue.
