Top Mobile Development Trends in 2020


Mobile applications have given the word, ‘Smartphones’ an entirely different perspective. What rather fits the nomenclature better, is calling them as ‘Intelligent Phones’. As we enter the year 2020, the world of mobile app technologies has become exhilarating, to say the least. They have become

devices embedded with AI and having predictive capabilities to offer unmatched personalization to the users. With increasing capabilities and compatibilities to explore, companies like Vatsa Solutions are experimenting with devices used in day to day lives, to connect the outside world with the mobile phone.

Here is a list of new mobile technology trends which one can expect with the onset of 2020.

Compatibility with wearable devices

Wearable devices have become a popular trend in 2019, with the use of smartwatches, activity trackers, fitness bands and even rings. This has also opened avenues for mobile app developers to explore the possibilities of refining the device OS and integrating it with mobile devices. This particularly finds more use in the healthcare and medical domain. 

Mobile Wallets

Mobile phones have automated cashless transactions even further and mobile wallets have gained immense popularity. In-app purchases are one of the primary methods of app monetization and this trend will definitely reach its pinnacle in 2020, with businesses ensuring that all their mobile apps will be compatible with mobile wallets.

Beacon Technology

Beacon technology has started gaining acceptance but is rapidly progressing towards a broader scope of applications. With its major applications being developed for on-the-go work culture, this technology has unlimited possibilities for both the private sectors, as well as for public organizations. It just remains to see how much of the technology’s actual capabilities can be explored in the coming future. 

AR/VR capabilities

Though AR/VR capabilities have been around for quite some time, it is their dynamic advancements that make them interesting. From gaming to business applications, AR and VR capabilities have become one of the most popular trends with Mobile app developers, and for good reasons. Just to give an example, here is how we, at Vatsa, helped one of our clients, a real-estate company from New Zealand, to create an Augmented Reality-based mobile application for real estate search.

Predictive Analysis merged with AI

Artificial Intelligence is making mobile apps smarter and, at the same time, helping users to receive a more personalized experience. With the continuous analysis of user-specific data, mobile applications are becoming a primary marketing tool for businesses to not only gain new customers but to retain a loyal customer base. This, in turn, has made it necessary for mobile app developers to create smarter apps. 


IoT is one of the most commonly used and widely accepted phenomenon today, in almost every industry, and still, it is not even close to having discovered its full potential. With the network of digital machines and computing devices getting denser, simplifying the structure to an extent that it becomes a natural part of the mobile phone OS, is one of the biggest challenges for app developers.

Mobile app development will be gaining a lot of importance in the coming year, especially becoming the primary tool for marketing and operations for any business. However, to unravel its true potential, it is imperative for a business to have a strong IT foundation and support from someone who observes and understands this rapidly-evolving nature. A partner like Vatsa can help you gain a competitive edge, as well as be future-ready for digital transformation.
