Why MP3 Players Are Outdated
To answer this question, we refer to mobile phones, which all have headphone jacks and allow you to listen to content both from your own memory and by streaming from the Internet. Why keep two gadgets with you to listen to music? Isn't it easier to carry only one, preferably the one with more functions, such as web browsing, social media, calling friends and relatives, possibly also games? Of course, the phone therefore has a greater grip on the public.
In addition, not all MP3 players offer internet access for music content. Some more demanding models are created for Spotify or Deezer, but almost any phone allows access to the same online song streaming services. Moreover, since many people have given up MP3s and other audio files, what good is investing in a device that focuses more on storing these documents in memory? Don't you better stay on the phone and listen to online music services?
