Yahoo has released a new study called “The Migration to Mobile Video.” The study was developed to understand how consumers use mobile video and why mobile video is growing.

3. Advertisers should think cross-screen. Video exposures across multiple devices led to higher brand awareness, helped awareness, and favorability.
