During the summer months, people normally spend a lot of their time outdoors, as the weather allows for some quality time away from home. However, being outdoors is not always easy, not only because many outdoor activities imply a cost but also because it can be hard to stay outside when the temperatures are high.
Luckily, modern tech allows for a lot of mobility when it comes to spending some time engaging in online activities, regardless if your final decision is to spend your day indoors or outdoors.
Stream Movies and Series on-the-go
Many of us have subscriptions with one or more streaming services and many of us access our accounts every single day in order to watch our favorite movies and series. Popular streaming providers have created applications that one can download on their phone and which they can use to watch movies and series, such as Shazam, Secret Invasion, and FUBAR. These entertainment contents can be streamed in real-time, or they can be downloaded.
This means that you can use your Netflix, Disney+, or HBO Max account while you are commuting to work, while you are chilling at the beach, or while you are flying to a tropical destination. As for those who prefer staying in this summer, these and other similar streaming services can always be enjoyed on your large smart TV, while you are relaxing on your sofa.
Take Your Video Gaming Outdoors
Some people prefer staying at home because they can spend more time playing their favorite games. However, being away from home does not necessarily mean that you will not be able to play video games. Portable gadgets with access to the Internet can offer you the same gaming experience regardless if you are at home or on a bus heading somewhere else.
You can use your smartphone to play PUBG Mobile, kill zombies in Dead Trigger 2, or spin on slot games like Jack Hammer. Of course, if you like a brain teaser, you can solve Sudoku puzzles or test your vocabulary when you play games like Wordle. Most of these games have very little hardware power requirements, so your phone will have no problem running them even if you are using multiple applications at the same time (like many people do when they are on the go).
If You Are Worried About Your Phone’s Battery, Get a Portable Console
Modern mobile devices can run pretty much any gaming software and this has made portable consoles less attractive, but this does not mean that these handheld consoles do not have a lot to offer. Just think about all the Nintendo titles that you will be able play at all times and from anywhere, just by owning a Nintendo Switch. The same applies to owning an ASUS ROG Ally, a Valve Steam Deck or a tablet device with gaming capabilities.
Are You Looking for Mobile Android and iOS Games?
Mobile gaming is not as backward as it used to be a few years ago. Users can play a lot more than just games like Nokia’s Snake and Tetris. Many Android and iOS mobile phones can support the gameplay of console-level video games.
Today, you can use your mobile to play Final Fantasy, League of Legends, and AR games such as Pokémon Go, Genshin Impact, and Spaceteam. The list of available mobile games is getting longer every single day, as more and more studios are releasing titles that can be played on multiple gaming environments. All you have to do is go to your app store, look for the game you want to play, and purchase or download it. The rest is easy.
