Talk to your radio: Internet’s Screenless Future

Christopher Ferrel

What does the Internet look like without screens? And how does it affect radio when our navigation on media is voice controlled? We are about to find out. Within three years, 30 percent of all web-browsing sessions will be done without a screen. More than 56 million screenless devices like Google Home and Amazon Echo are expected to ship worldwide this year. For some, screenless digital time will eclipse digital screen time. Join Chris Ferrel as he explores how radio and brands can embrace the Screenless Internet.

Questions we’ll answer:

  • Why is the Screenless Internet set to explode in the next five years?
  • How should my digital marketing strategy evolve for voice-activated technology like Google Home, Apple AirPods, and Amazon Echo?
  • What are effective digital ads in the Screenless Internet?
