8 min read

Mobile apps have completely transformed businesses and the way people live. More and more technologies are evolving for mobile app development; surely we can expect something big shortly. 


Do you know that according to a survey by Statista, there are over 5.6 million mobile apps available on the Google Play and Apple App Store combined? How would you make your app stand out from the other apps available if there are already so many apps?

The answer to this question is that you should incorporate the latest mobile app technologies in your app to make it unique and distinct. 

So, In this blog, we have explained the 7 latest technologies that have revolutionized the whole mobile app industry.  

Now let’s dive in to learn more about these technologies!

Technologies For Mobile App Development

1. Artificial Intelligence

Before we deep dive into the concept of Artificial Intelligence(AI). Let’s first understand what exactly the term means.

So, Artificial Intelligence refers to the system or machines that mimic human intelligence and perform tasks according to the information they collect. 

It can be used in many different ways such as facial recognition, automated reasoning, real-time language translation, service recommendation, etc. Developers are efficiently using this to perform tasks that were previously done manually. 

Artificial intelligence integration into the mobile app can improve its performance to a great extent. Some of the famous brands that have already leveraged the benefits of this technology include: 

  • Netflix
  • Snapchat
  • Spotify and many more. 

2. IoT (Internet of Things)

The Internet of Things is an ecosystem of devices connected to the internet that collects and exchanges data. It is estimated that it will reach a net worth of $594 billion by the end of 2022. 

This technology has deeply influenced our lives. From smartphones to voice-controlled smart homes, we are all surrounded by devices connected to the internet. 

Furthermore, in the past few years, Amazon and Google have fully utilized this technology by introducing the “Echo” line of devices and Google Voice controller respectively. 

Along with Google, Amazon brands like Samsung, Xiaomi, and Bosch are continuously moving forward to adopt IoT in their mobile apps. 

Lastly, the demand for IoT-enabled apps will evolve and increase simultaneously. That’s why it definitely should be there in the emerging mobile app development trends. 


3. Blockchain Technology

Blockchain technology is continuously making new records in the mobile app development industry. Many companies are taking advantage of this and incorporating it into their mobile apps to enjoy more functionality.  


But what does blockchain do?

It is a distributed ledger technology that enables a safe payment method for digital currencies such as bitcoin and Litecoin in a peer-to-peer network. 

Furthermore, if Blockchain will get incorporated with other latest trends, it can be used to make a successful, fast, and reliable mobile app. 


4. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML)

AI and ML are popular trends in mobile app development services and are adopted by many businesses due to their renowned versatility and seamless user experience.

Chatbots, facial recognition, speech recognition, recommendation engines, and many more new advancements have been made possible only through Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. 

The key tech giants that are making the most out of these are Google and Apple. Recently Google launched new features to the maps to enhance the user experience. Also, they used AI to suggest fewer traffic routes by optimizing the directions. 

Both AI and ML perform very well individually, but when combined, they can do wonders for the mobile app industry. These technological advancements have set the bar very high and it will be interesting to know what they will bring to the table shortly. 


5. Beacon technology

Beacon technology is something that many of you might have heard for the first time. So before we move forward let’s first understand what exactly is Beacon Technology.

Beacons are small, wireless transmitters that use the Bluetooth of the mobile phone to identify the proximity of nearby devices. Let’s understand this more by an example. Now imagine that you want a pair of shoes and you Google that particular shoe by a specific brand. But before buying you want to try them first. And when you proceed further on your way to the store, you get a notification from your phone app that shows all the information about your desired model, price, and other information. 

Do you know how all this happened? So this has been made possible by Beacon Technology. 


Mostly, this technology is used in the advertising field because it allows businesses to send messages and notifications to their targeted customers to enhance their sales. Additionally, shortly, many industries such as Healthcare, Games, Travel & Tourism, etc will also incorporate Beacons in their apps. 


6. Cloud Technology

Cloud technology has evolved to a great extent over the past few years. First, it started as a hosting service but has become a platform for the secure storage of our data. 

If this technology is integrated into mobile applications, they can be run on the cloud. Furthermore, it will prove beneficial for both users and mobile app developers as it allows them to make the apps faster and cut down the development costs as well. 

From the user's perspective,  they will get the app access without having to install them. 

As a whole, cloud technology has made web hosting inexpensive, accessible, and more load efficient. Soon in the coming times, it will become the backbone of mobile app development services. 


7. Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)

The game that brought Augmented Reality into the mainstream is Pokemon Go. And of course who is not familiar with this game? This game showed the world that VR could be practically used to offer an enhanced experience to users. 

Not only in the games arena but these technologies have also been used in many other industries to enhance the efficiency of the applications. For instance, if we look around we can see that many brands are already leveraging the benefits of these technologies such as. 

  • IKEA is using this feature through which its users can try over 2,000 IKEA products on an online platform to make their preferred selections. This made it easier for their customers to make buying decisions at their place. 
  • Lenskart used AR and VR that allow their customers to try both eyeglasses and sunglasses virtually. Additionally, you can filter your preferences according to your face shape, budget, the type of frame you need, and so on.  
  • Google has introduced a “live-view” feature in their maps so that their users can see the direction in real-time. 

Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality will soon prove to be game changers in the whole mobile app industry. 


The mobile app industry will continue to expand more rapidly. That’s why make sure to be up to date with all the latest innovations and trends. 

We hope this blog helped you to understand which new technologies are evolving and how you can use these to improve your mobile app performance.
