has roped in some of India’s leading brands, such as PepsiCo and SonyLIV, to create a pilot and demo the capabilities of this product at the Indian Mobile Congress.

Today, the Indian advertising industry is in flux – India’s 750M+ mobile users are increasingly spending more time on their mobile screens, an average of ~5 hours daily, according to an App Annie report. With reducing attention spans, brands are increasingly looking toward innovative mobile-first ad formats to connect with this next-generation audience, capture their attention and build awareness.

Commenting on this, Mr Adarsh Nair, CEO – of Airtel Digital said, “The biggest benefit of 5G is that it allows us to do more with low-latency. We are leveraging this technology to create India’s first ever immersive VR advertisement that offers brands a direct connect to consumers in a mobile-first environment. Brands can leverage this to create engaging, immersive, and personalized experiences for their customers.”
