Future of Mobile App Development: AI-driven Trends and Technologies
The world of technologies and innovations has entered a new era, as artificial intelligence (AI) stands out as the most influential factor reshaping the IT industry, in ways we were unable to expect. As you read this blog, the future of mobile app development has clearly shifted into a more dynamic and robust process with AI-driven advancements.
With the industry evolves right front of our eyes, let’s take a look at what has and will change in the near future, so that you, as a high-potential startup, know what to look out for to stay ahead of the competition.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Mobile App Development
Artificial Intelligence can be identified as a technology that mimics the thinking process and performs tasks in a way that human intelligence would do. It gathers information on a massive scale and technically “learn” from it.
AI is revolutionary, but to what extend? Within the mobile app development landscape, AI-powered features, such as chatbots and predictive analytics, has become increasingly popular to users worldwide. It helps enhancing user experiences and personalization like never before! For example:
- Chatbots: provide instant support and assistance based on users’ inquiries;
- Predictive analytics: analyze user behaviors to deliver personalized recommendations and suggestions.
AI integration in the mobile app market opens up scalable potential for businesses from various sectors. With the goal to stay ahead and reach further, businesses are willing to add AI features in their own mobile apps. They can streamline their operations, automate processes, and provide futuristic experiences to their users. From intelligent voice assistants to image recognition, everything can now be supported and integrated within your application.
This movement changes the way businesses understand their market; with an extended, more accurate process of market research. AI enables businesses to gain valuable customer insights, avoid overly repetitive tasks, and deliver the app experiences that actually resonate with their users. The future of mobile app development lies in utilizing AI technologies to create intelligent, intuitive, and engaging apps that cater to the evolving needs and preferences of users.
Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) in Mobile Apps
Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are powerful technologies that take user experiences to new levels. AR overlays digital content onto the real world, while VR creates immersive, simulated environments. Both AR and VR hold tremendous potential to transform multiple industries, as well as offer unique opportunities for elevating traditional mobile app development process.
AR and VR have been applied across sectors such as:
- Real estate,
- Healthcare, and more.
Businesses can provide interactive and engaging experiences to their users by leveraging AR and VR in mobile apps. For example:
|Augmented Reality (AR)||Virtual Reality (VR)|
|Users can virtually try on products such as clothing, accessories, or even makeup products.||Immersive virtual environments and provide tours of real-world locations, without being physically at the location|
|Visualize furniture in their homes to foresee the overall design||Realistic simulations for various industries, such as healthcare|
|Engage in location-based games that blend the virtual and real world together (games such as Pokemon Go! are the best example for these types of experience)||Engaging gaming experiences where users can interact with virtual objects and environments, build and craft to their imagination (lots of games which are originally in 2D and 3D have been developed into interactable VR in recent years)|
You can expect an increase in user engagement and brand awareness if the integration of these technologies is done right. The hidden truth behind these seemingly “beyond expectation” results is that you and your developers team will have to pour in a lot more effort into the building process.
To install AR and VR into mobile apps, it can require extra-careful consideration of design, performance, and cross-device compatibility. App developers need to: 1. Possess the sets of skills to successfully get the AI to run smoothly in your apps; and 2. Optimize user interfaces, create seamless interactions, and deliver high-quality visuals.
Of course, all your effort will lead to fruitful and positive results. As AR and VR continue to advance, the future of mobile app development is definitely going to be exciting with multiple innovations. Organizations – who are already implementing these technologies to provide their users with immersive, interactive and over-the-top experiences, will definitely be able to gain a competitive advantage over their rivals.
Voice Interfaces and Natural Language Processing
Voice Interfaces and Natural Language Processing (NLP) have transformed the way users interact with mobile apps, providing a more intuitive and seamless experience. Here’s an overview of the role of voice interfaces and NLP in mobile apps:
Voice-activated apps have grown in popularity as a result of the virtual assistants wave from top tech companies, such as: Siri, Google Assistant, and Alexa. Users can interact with certain operations without using their hand to type inquiries all the time.
We can now simply speaks into our phone, and our pocket-sized assistants can carry out the tasks. Some of the simple things such as setting reminders, sending messages, or searching for information can now be done with just the voice. It adds so much more accessibility and productivity to applications as well, so keep this feature in mind for your future projects.
Improved User Interactions
Natural Language Processing (NLP) technically helps your application to understand and interpret human languages as users speak to the phone. This allows conversations to be more natural and context-aware, rather than just an out-of-the-place interaction.
Just ask questions, or give commands in a conversational manner. For example, let’s say the speaker is American, and form a request like: “Hey Google, set the alarm for tomorrow at 7am”. NLP algorithms can analyze and process the user’s input, and initiate steps to fulfill the request, with complete automation.
Personalization is one of the key trends in the mobile app industry particularly, and every entrepreneurs would want to satisfy their users with a comprehensive solution. That’s when AI algorithms kick in.
With information like users’ preferences, behavior, and context, Voice interfaces and NLP enable apps to personalize experiences better than ever. Understanding the user’s intent and gather valuable insights from users’ voice commands, apps can deliver much better responses, content, and services.
Voice interfaces with NLP capabilities can facilitate real-time language translation. Users can speak in their native language, and the app can translate their speech into another language, enabling seamless communication and breaking down language barriers. Some of the most well-known apps include Google Translate, iTranslate, TripLingo, etc.
With voice interfaces, users can perform hands-free searches within apps. They can ask questions or provide specific queries, and the app will retrieve relevant information or present search results audibly. Voice-activated search improves user convenience and efficiency.
It would be easy say the future of mobile app development takes an extraordinary turn. However, there are more to come, with continuous release of AI platforms and new features we have never experienced before. And yet, we have only explored a small and early-stage foreseen of the industry, and discussed some of the most latest trends that reshaping the industry. Therefore, we are thrilled to update any trends and news within the IT, and keep you, our valuable readers, informed in our next blogs!
