Here's Why Mobile Is Taking The World By Storm
For years Mobile seemed to be the last option when it came to gaming. It was either PC or Console before even considering Mobile and many believed that mobile gaming was not "gaming". Now the underdog, Mobile is taking the world by storm! We as humans have evolved, so has technology and Mobile is taking the reigns when it comes to everything the consumer may need. Need to check your bank and pay someone? no problem, there's an app for that. Need to order food? There's an app for that. Need to buy a new outfit? There's an app for that. Everything you think you may need, Mobile just about has it all. Whenever and wherever you are, you can stream series and movies on an app, play in gaming tournaments and compete against your friends, shop, eat, learn, play, interact and so much more.
But how has Mobile become the leading device in gaming?? The expectation is that PC and Consoles are the leading devices, the beefed-up devices that everyone wants because if you compare a cellphone to a console, I'm pretty sure the console has a better chance of being chosen. While having a PC and Console is cool and very expensive, it simply does not offer what Mobile does! Just like its name, you are mobile and so need a Mobile device. You are not restricted to a plug point, cables that need to be connected to internet, electricity, screens and more. Mobile gives you the freedom to go and do as you please with everything you need at the touch of your fingertips.
Mobile companies have hit the nail on the head by giving the consumers what they want and what they didn't know they needed. Gone are the days where you need multiple devices such as a cellphone, a camera, an mp4 player, a home phone with an internet connection, a Gameboy and more. Today everything you ever needed is rolled into 1 portable device with high quality. Statistics by App Annie and NewZoo show that in 2019 Mobile accounted for 46% of the device used for gaming, whereas Console came second with 30% and Pc only being 24%.
Companies and Brands are beginning to see the reach mobile has in the statistics with consumers and are starting to invenst and advertise more. In 2019 $177,400 Billion was spent on Mobile advertising and it continues to increase going up 26% in 2020, a whopping $240 Billion! People spend most of their time on their mobile, whether it be for business or pleasure, generally one is never without their mobile device. It's no wonder that in the gaming industry Mobile is and will be continuing to take the lead, the opportunities are endless and ever-evolving. Last year, the app stores skyrocketed with 204 Billion worldwide app downloads! Besides gaming, there's fitness apps, food apps, streaming apps and so much more!
In 2019, the research showed that the average user spends around 3,7 hours on their phone every day. That is almost half of your working hours! Most of us spend those hours scrolling through social media updating ourselves and others' lives and playing casual games to unwind from the day and relax. Today, we as the human race rely heavily on our Mobile device to fulfill a lot of our needs. Games to entertain us, social media to get our gossip and social fix, apps to make sure we keep on track with health and fitness, these are just some of the reasons why Mobile is taking a steady lead in the race.
Gaming is what we do and love, but gaming on Mobile is our forte. That is why we are so excited for the future of Mobile. Technology is insane and evolving rapidly in the Mobile Gaming community. There's VR, AR and who knows what could be next! The possibilities are endless with Mobile and if you haven't got the hint already, mobile games are the way to go.
