The relation between featured snippets Mobile and Voice search
According to Google, the featured snippet format is especially helpful for those on mobile or searching by voice. Since the incredible growth of both mobile and voice search (Mobile search traffic has surpassed desktop traffic worldwide), more people are doing voice queries every day.
Therefore Google will show the traditional 10 links format less and less, and rich results like featured snippets are Google’s answer to improve search experience.
