Google Study: Online video viewing habits

Google has released a heap of interesting facts about how we're consuming online video – here's the pick of the digital bunch.

Mobile movies

According to Google, one in three adults aged between 18 and 54 years now say their smartphone is their primary device for watching online video.

This is changing how we're watching video, but not just when we're out and about.

Home screening

Indeed, half of YouTube users tune in when they're at home, but not just on their smartphone.

Over the past year the number of users watching YouTube videos on a TV screen has doubled.

Content specific

Interestingly, content dictates which screen users will view videos on.

Most users prefer to watch beauty, fashion, entertainment, and pop culture content on their smartphones. Travel and food videos are more likely to viewed on a desktop or laptop. 

While news, sport, and comedy are most often viewed on a TV screen. Users also prefer group viewing in front of a larger screen.

What does this mean for your brand? Keep in mind your audience (and screen) when creating your next piece of video content.
