“Mobile is the enabling centerpiece of digital convergence. Mobile is the glue for all other digital industries to use when approaching convergence, but mobile is also the digital gateway for the real world to join in this global metamorphosis of human behavior.”- Tomi Ahonen

Chatbots became part of today’s technology more than a decade back and over the course of these years, this technology has evolved and transformed significantly. One way to improve consumer engagement on a website is to include chatbots.
However, out of millions of applications that are available on Google Play Store and Apple App Store, only a handful of mobile applications have chatbots feature and this is something that will change this year.
Chatbots in mobile applications are gaining popularity among users/consumers. If we consider the available data and statistics then the global chatbot market is impressively growing at a 24 percent rate every year. Chatbots will penetrate and trend in the mobile app market for the upcoming year as well.
With changing technology the type of cybercrime we are coming across has also transformed. Whether you are a small scale business owner, an entrepreneur, or a fotrune500 firm, cybercrime is a problem for every business present online.
There has been an increase of 54% in malware attacks that are targeted towards mobile devices. Over 60% of fraud incidents are administered from mobile devices. As a business that is going to invest in mobile application development, it is critical information and thus the security of your application cannot be compromised. As a mobile app developer, your main priority should be to secure your application.
Predictive analytics includes an array of statistical algorithms such as data mining, predictive modeling, AI, and machine learning to predict about the future events.
Big technology giants such as Netflix have leveraged predictive analytics successfully for years. The platform predicts and recommends movies and shows to its user based on their previously watched shows.
In 2021, you can expect predictive analytics to gain more popularity and online mediums like mobile applications are most likely to implement it. This technology can be used to improve and enhance the UI/UX features of your application.
Recent statistics show that almost 19% of companies are already into predictive analytics and thus using AI. An application with AI will have the potential to offer a personalized experience to individual users depending on their behavior history and user actions.
Another trend for mobile apps that will rank high this year is on-demand mobile application development. It is estimated that online users spend more than $57 billion every year utilizing on-demand services. Airbnb and Uber are some examples of the same trend.
The on-demand industry can leverage the potential of mobile applications to reach out to more and more consumers. Some of the services that are always in demand include food delivery, house cleaning service, maintenance services, doctors on-demand and laundry services, etc. and through smart applications, it is possible to provide quality services to the consumers while growing your business simultaneously.
Cloud computing has yet to invade the mobile app market and gain the recognition. However, 2021 is the year when cloud computing and mobile application development is going to trend.
Users will experience seamless and high-end mobile application performance if they are able to access cloud storage while using their mobile apps. It is believed that by the end of this year almost 83% of enterprise workload will become cloud-based.
While Android Instant Apps were already launched a couple of years ago, this trend will see a growth at full-throttle this year. There is going to be a potential rise in the usage of instant applications in 2021.
By building an instant application experience you are reaching out to your potential buyers and users who are yet to discover your application. Android Studio, for instance, allows developers to design and build an Instant application experience for the users and by that, we mean that a user can experience the app without installing it.
The “Try Now” button will give you a demo experience (without downloading) so that you can know what the particular application is about and if you would want to install it. These instant applications come with size restrictions as these are not the full version of the app.
These were our top 15 trends for mobile application development for the year 2021. The mobile platform is constantly transforming and so you can expect more trends to get on the list every year.
