Retronyms

Just heard a retronym that’s new to me: audio phone.

A co-worker was offering options to someone for ways to do interviews: in-person, via video, or audio phone. Audio phone!

I’m not sure if it will (or has) caught on, but in my mind, at least for today, it’s joined the ranks of black & white TV, snail mail, and other words adjusted into phrases because something new has come along.
