New research suggests you could stream media from a smartphone without leaving your home.
The research from the University of Oxford, led by Andrew Brown and Michael Ebert, found that you could even stream media on a smartphone from anywhere on the Internet without leaving the home.
“There is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to stream a media source on your phone anywhere you want,” Ebert said in a press release.
Brown and Ebert conducted a study on smartphone users and their attitudes to media and entertainment.
They found that when asked about how they would choose a television show, smartphone users tended to say they would want the shows online, and when asked what they would watch on Netflix, smartphone viewers tended to want to stream from home.
They also asked about other media on their phones and found that smartphone users were most likely to use their smartphone for reading news, playing video games, watching movies, and downloading apps.
Ebert said the findings suggest that people aren’t always going to want their devices to be online.
“If you want to read something online, you need a web browser to access it,” he said.
“If you’re playing a game online, the browser is a good way to access that game.
And when you’re watching something on your TV, it’s a good source of information.”
If you’ve ever heard a phone ringing, it likely means your phone has been disconnected from the internet.
This could happen when a smartphone’s battery is dying or the device is connected to a Wi-Fi network.
“With the ubiquity of smartphones and the fact that many people don’t have access to a router or an Ethernet cable, they can’t get online unless they have a device with a smartphone,” Brown said.
Brown said that people are increasingly looking for ways to keep their devices connected to the internet and that this means a smartphone should be considered a “media outlet” and not just a source of entertainment.
