The drive safety app Drivemode looked at driving data from 2. 7 million U. S. drivers using Android phones between Jan. 2018 and April 30, 2019 and found that over 167 million miles and 13. 3 million hours, Americans use their phone for a better part of an hour in the car on average.
But still, in an hour the average driver surveyed spends some quality time using tech on the phone.
We can’t stay away from text messages, but since it’s harder to send a hands-free using voice, we are likely to receive more messages during an hour of driving than we send.
Spotify is the music player of choice 30 percent of the time, followed by Google Play Music 27 percent of the time (these are Android users after all).
