Android Development Trends For 2020

--By On March 2, 2020

In a nutshell, there will be little changes in comparison with 2019. We predict that there will be few fundamentally new applications, and they will be mainly connected with AR/VR and smart services.

We believe that in 2020, the ascent of Harmony OS from Huawei will begin. But so far it will only affect China and slightly the Asian part of the Eurasian continent. By the end of the year, trial devices on Fuchsia from Google may be released. But in 2020, both of these systems will affect the Android market very slightly, at least because it will be only the beginning. However, in the second half of 2020, it will already be necessary to think about hiring an experienced Flutter developer for your business, if you don’t have such an expert on board yet.

According to the process of visual perception changing among youth most app development companies order to update their application according to the mass trends: improving existing successful applications, support, redesign, gamification, migration of grown cross-platform applications to native code. Flutter development looks like a great solution to reach this objective fast and thus, cost-efficient. Therefore, we can talk about Flutter app development growth tendencies within the field of mobile, web and desktop development and conquering a leadership among the other tools for UI designing.

With the start of 5G testing, the field of Android mobile application development will go through many changes. The implementation of new technologies will change development methods. In other words, 2020 will bring many new trends in all areas, including the creation of mobile applications.

1. The decentralization of funds with BlockChain will continue.

Just because it is convenient. Along with the development of financial BlockChain applications, new models of smartphones based on it are also expected. Why is this a coming trend in the development of mobile applications? Because several smartphones have already been released, which are based on the BlockChain. These include Finney from Sirin Labs and HTC Exodus. Thanks to efficient synchronization, high security, and flexibility of this technology, more and more mobile applications will be built using the decentralized BlockChain.

2. The integration with the Google assistant will increase.



If your Android application is deaf to “ok, Google!”, or even worse, it is not involved in a contextual search, then oblivion is almost guaranteed - it will be thrown away by the next weekend due to suppression of unused applications, and Google search will unobtrusively suggest installing some other apps as a replacement. Human speech is very complex: only one question about the weather can be asked in a variety of ways. This creates difficulties for Assistant, so Google is introducing some improvements in the field of voice recognition and context.

3. AR/VR.

The implementation of augmented reality in the development of mobile applications has many variations. Apps that can look for information about the nearest restaurants or cafes, also personal data about each person (for sure it is just for representatives of law enforcement agencies), road traffic and many other things can be known with the technology.



If only a small part of AR/VR games can be noticed and take place in hearts and phones, then advancement in the field of CAD and especially in the field of online shopping will be significant. I really want to try on the upcoming purchase! And what about you?



VR applications help choose clothes and fit them virtually in different situations, and the appearance of virtual characters is hardly surprising. Digi-Capital, an analytical company, predicts $70-75 billion in AR revenue by 2023, and $10-15 billion in VR.

4. The proliferation of IoT and wearable devices.

Well, who does not like comfort at home! And who will remind you that it is time to visit a doctor more often than once every six months or a year? Patients can now connect to medical monitors or IoT devices, so virtual assistants help them to monitor their health wherever they are. These devices do a great job allowing doctors to check the level of sugar in blood or heart rhythms and, if necessary, take preventive measures in a big distance.


If you combine data from various sources and with different devices, you can get an almost endless highly informative stream that can be used in a variety of fields - from medicine and scientific research to the management of companies and enterprises.



Even though in 2013-2014, in my opinion, unjustified forecasts were made of 35-50 billion IoT devices in 2020, there is still an increase in the number of devices and the necessary Android applications for them. Many IoT devices can successfully use low-bandwidth networks such as NB-IoT or Cat-M LTE. 5G technology will also expand the capabilities of IoT Android applications based on cognitive data processing. At the same time, the very small network latencies (up to 2 ms) offered by the 5G network will allow these networks to successfully support IoT applications, which must immediately respond to dynamically changing conditions.

5. Integration with intelligent services.



It is becoming increasingly difficult to compete in the labor market. Salaries are not growing as fast as the requirements for the skills of candidates. As never before we want to save both time and money. People want to pay less for insurance, get more services, contact the best specialist for a case, buy as many necessary goods as possible at a discount price and not spend a lot of time on it.


Saving money and time becomes work for Big Data and AI systems, taking less and less time for each family. Google cannot yet cover everything - many valuable developments in this area belong to other players. And naturally, they need applications on users' devices.


The simplicity of the UX of any application is the complexity of the technology on which it is built. Shazam for fashion Amazon or StyleSnap allows users to upload a photo with clothes that the application analyzes and displays search results with the same items as in the photo on the Amazon website. Of course, this application is not unique, previously a similar project was already launched by Asos, but 2020 Android development trends are still interesting because the combination of AI, 5G and other unique innovations will allow intelligent services to work in a completely different way.

Bottom Line

Soon we will see that mobile applications will use more advanced technologies to create a more exciting and secure user experience. Businesses will continue to improve mobile apps, with a focus on streamlining operations and improving customer service, as more people use smartphones to do everyday tasks. Predictions for 2020 are just the continuation of the boom in technology development and we look forward to progress and new applications from Android-based on new development trends.
