HOW YOUR SMARTPHONE HAS CHANGED
YOUR ENTERTAINMENT EXPERIENCE

It’s hard to believe that the word smartphone did not start being used until 1995. Yes, we had cell phones before then, but they did not provide the immersive mobile experience that we are used to today. In fact, even early smartphones were not as advanced as the devices that are now in use. Modern smartphones have become integral to our everyday experience, including how we access the world of entertainment.

So, how does your smartphone affect your entertainment experience? Let’s look at five different aspects of this in more detail, starting with how smartphone technology has brought us closer to the world of casinos.

Casinos at your fingertips

Online casinos first came onto the scene in the mid-1990s, but it was not until the mid-2000s that the first mobile casinos launched. They brought slot machines and table games to smartphones and tablets across the world. This means that you can visit sites like mobilbetslots.com and play top slot machines wherever you are, as long as you are connected to the Internet.

Watching movies wherever you are

Incredibly, as many as 39 million people in the US have cut the cord. This means that they do not watch TV and movies using a traditional broadcasting solution. They stream the content that they want to watch using providers like Netflix, HBO and Amazon. Streaming content in this way continues to increase in popularity. Using your smartphone allows you to take this a step further. You do not have to be close to a desktop or laptop to enjoy your favorite movies. You can use your mobile device to watch them wherever you are.

Music without the hassle

There is no doubt that vinyl is making something of a comeback when it comes to enjoying music. However, there is still something to be said for the convenience of using your smartphone to listen to your favorite tunes. It’s so simple to use Spotify or YouTube to listen to tracks. It’s also a great way of killing time when you are traveling to work, school or college.

Becoming a genius in entertainment knowledge

You never need to feel like an idiot when your friends are talking about entertainment if you have a smartphone. Google is always there to help with finding all the information you need to join in with the conversation. Virtual assistants like Alexa can also help you to impress with your knowledge as can apps like Shazam when it comes to identifying music tracks.

Keeping up with the gossip on social media

Let’s face it, a big part of the fun, when it comes to entertainment, is knowing all the latest gossip. One of the best ways to keep up with what is going on is to use smartphone apps like Twitter and Facebook. You can follow your favorite celebrities, as well as top celebrity news sites like TMZ and Eonline. Social media is also a great place to discuss the gossip with friends and you can do this whenever you want to, if you use your smartphone.

It’s easy to see just how much your smartphone has changed the way you experience entertainment. This is set to continue as smartphones continue to evolve.
