Format number as a phone number in PowerApps

Writing on the Let's Power Automate blog, Tom Riha answered the question: "I have a long number in the SharePoint list, how can I format it as a phone number in PowerApps app to separate the numbers?"

Riha wrote that one of the benefits of using PowerApps is that you can control what the users see, e.g., how the app looks, what options the users have, and how they see the data. 

He pointed out that there's also the possibility to format it in the most user friendly way. He noted that he's already written a post on formatting numbers as a currency, now about a more personal information – the phone numbers.

Riha wrote that when you show phone numbers, you don’t want to show a single long number as users might want to rewrite the numbers on their phones, which is much easier if there are some separators. In his blog post, Riha explained how to format a number as a phone number in PowerApps.
