Listening to music on a mobile device continues to increase in popularity among mobile subscribers. 27% of them said they listened during the 3 month survey period and that’s up 2.2% from 3 months earlier. In fact, listening to music is an increasingly popular activity among mobile subscribers, it grew faster than playing games, accessing a browser or social networking site, or texting, the latter of which grew not at all.
This is all in keeping with other reports of increasing mobile listening and emphasizes the importance of offering listeners appealing mobile options.
