Streaming, gaming, and overall online consumption of music and video games has been on the rise over the last few years. Now, how come all your favourite hits have been coming up on your screen while playing? How is it that music impacts the gaming world? Well, there’s just one good and precise answer for that, and it’s that music is the key to every kind of enjoyable space.
Streaming services, YouTube, music downloading and live online video are only a few of the tools that technology has brought to enjoy music in many new forms. In today’s day and age, you can expect music to be delivered in almost any sort of way. For instance, other big players of the entertainment industry such as online gaming platforms have already explored the beneficial effects of music and sound effects. While playing, for example, Slingo casino games, the user will not only be entertained by the game mechanic, but will be able to immerse into the atmosphere of the game – all thanks to musical accompaniment. The internet has democratised music in many ways we haven’t seen before, and it's always renewing itself.
The right soundtrack could basically form the whole ambience of the moment and help to set the scene. Music is in your favourite restaurant setting a tone for the evening, it’s on the dance floor promising a fun night up, it’s a part of your exercise making the enthusiasm rise. Music is an organic part of our lives – and technology allowed this tendency to develop in various ways.
Your Game, Your World
The music industry and the gaming industry meet right down in the middle when it comes to the consumer. Streaming has become, unconsciously, the biggest way that we consume music, and so has been online playing games. You have it in your phone, you have it in your tablet, in your laptop and in your PlayStation and the industry hasn’t been unaware of this. Pop hits, trap hits have been all over the place these last years and you find them on the radio and in your online game board. Now, what kind of music you consume, no matter if it’s a good old time Madonna it or a Lil Nas X song, is what is setting the tone for what’s coming next. Are covers of the 80s back ? Absolutely! Is Queen your go-to song for a road trip? Then there’s nobody that can stop you now if this gets you on a roll! Live performances, covers, remastered old hits, anything that gets your world going is the soundtrack of your world.
