Millions of people around the world, including many from India, place bets on a regular basis. The platforms we use for placing those bets have changed a lot in recent years, making betting more accessible than ever before.
A big part of that has been down to improvements in mobile technology. This has allowed bookmakers to push forward and improve their service using the new technology available. All of which is good news for those betting in India, with access to sports betting platforms being as convenient as we have ever seen it.
Mobile Internet Speeds & Stability
To do anything with your mobile phone, you need an internet connection you trust. This must be both fast and stable, even more so when you are dealing with transactions involving money as people do when betting.
The mobile internet speeds we have now are more than capable of handling the betting needs of anyone, and the lines are also very stable. Gamblers can trust what they are using, and they know their bets are going to be placed while the bookmakers also know they can trust this, so they can continue to improve and build on their service.
Whether you are using your mobile to place bets on IPL cricket, worldwide football or something else, having a strong mobile internet connection is how you bet and vital to the industry.
Powerful Mobile Devices
The mobile phones we all use have changed a lot over the past couple of decades. Gone are the days of limitations on phones, the best gadgets we hold have endless capabilities.
This helps anyone who is creating an app to go on your phone, and the betting industry is one of many to take advantage of this. Top quality phones can handle highly complex apps and that has given bookmakers the chance to improve their mobile service by adding more features.
Live betting and live streaming are now available on many mobile apps and the only reason they are there is because phones are capable of handling them. The battle between big providers such as Apple and Samsung has dominated mobile phone technology in recent years.
Phones are now much better than they have ever been before, and others, such as the betting industry, are taking advantage of that.
Perhaps the most fascinating thing about what mobile technology is doing for the betting industry is how this will affect the future, and what the next steps are.
The rise in voice-recognition software is huge at the moment, with either specific voice devices or apps on mobile phones being used. The users speak to their device and ask for something.
Could we see the next move focused around this, allowing those who want to bet via a mobile phone the option to speak their bet into the phone, for the app to place? This is likely to take many years to create, but it does seem to be the logical next step for the industry.
