According to a survey conducted in metro cities it is proved that almost all the passengers view videos in their mobiles as of opposed to looking out of windows, seeing traffic, etc which was the most classic way.
After Mobile phones have become common in one’s hand and these days 1GB/day is available cheaply. So all these factors are helping people watch online video streaming platforms on the go. Not just that we have Social Media sites and many entertaining apps that can engage us for long hours.
I think this is 100% true, as I am public transport traveller I use local trains regularily. These days alomost everyone has their head down immersed into mobile with a headset plugged in. Earlier only people who can afford data at higher rates only use to be engaged in mobiles.
