Today’s teens may be less tech-obsessed than their millennial predecessors

In a report on the future of the workplace, the cloud communications firm 8x8 and Logica Research surveyed 1,000 employed Americans who use a computer or phone for work.

 

Results by Generation

The results, broken down into the responses of Gen Z (ages 18 to 20), Millennials (21 to 35), and Gen X (35 to 50), suggest that Gen Z is not only less tech-obsessed than their millennial predecessors but also more concerned with effectiveness than efficiency.

 

Current Tools and Devices

 

Vox covered the study and stated that "when asked which devices or tools they currently use, and foresee using five years in the future, Gen Z lagged behind millennials and Gen X in every technological category save for social media."
