First Edition: Mobile App Development—Trends in 2020
Welcome to the first edition of top mobile app development trends in 2020!
As we enter the new decade, it’s more important than ever to keep tabs on the latest developments in the mobile app development industry.
In this edition, we’ll discuss artificial intelligence, wearable technology, and 5G.
Let’s get started:
Incorporating Artificial Intelligence in mobile apps
The last decade has laid down the foundation that will allow Artificial intelligence (AI) to be integrated into every device and platform.
While developers have been incorporating AI in mobile applications for a while now, we can expect to see a much bigger, more multidimensional impact in 2020.
Developers will utilize AI to analyze user data patterns and gather deep insights to provide more interesting, tailor-made experience to mobile users.
Last year, Google showed off a splashy demo of an artificial intelligence assistant, Duplex, in their annual developer conference.
The demo showed an AI assistant booking a reservation by carrying out a conversation like a human (kind of robotic, but sort of!).
This was just a glimpse of how AI is evolving so quickly.
Wearable technology devices will pose more challenges
The last decade was revolutionary in terms of tech development. In addition to AI, it gave us smart wearable devices.
Mainstream devices like the Apple Watch, Google Glass, Fitbit, and Nike+ have completely revolutionized wearable technology. And it’s going to get better in the coming years.
In 2020, we expect to see a rise in wearable devices, especially fitness trackers and smart glasses.
Currently, the apps that function with wearable devices need to be in close proximity to smartphones, but in the future, phones will no longer be the hub for wearable device connectivity.
Hence, mobile app developers will need to step up their game to meet ever-growing user expectations and provide richer, more hands-free online experiences.
5G will have a huge impact
5G has finally arrived, and it’s set to revolutionize the way we experience the internet. The fifth-generation internet technology will make the current data transmission look like a joke.
Many industry experts are betting big on 5G. By the end of the year, we expect to see a large number of mobile users shifting to it.
Hence, developers will keep 5G technology in mind when designing mobile apps so users can take advantage of faster internet speeds.
The mobile app development industry is evolving! And it’s important to keep up to maintain your competitive edge.
Stay tuned! We’ll be back with more emerging trends to keep you updated.
