More use of Chatbots in Mobile apps: For providing personalized answers to the user’s chatbots play a very important role and they also do not require any special maintenance. Apps like Facebook, Slack, and Skype the largest messengers use chatbots for better user communication. This role of chatbots can force small businesses to implement chatbots in their native apps as chatbots can significantly improve the functionality of their mobile applications. The interactive interface of chatbots increases the popularity of the mobile app as it increases the engagement of the audience. A mobile app with a built-in feature of chatbots can help in providing more and more accurate answers to the customer’s requests.

Reports from prominent research organizations state that there will be a jump of 35% in the wearable market in the year 2019 and a revenue generation estimate of $ 33 billion by wearable devices in the year 2019.
There are clear indications that a large number of mobile apps will support wearable devices in the coming year due to such a large market potential of these devices. Every wearable device requires a set platform to run. Apple Watch on watch OS and Android smartwatches sync with WearOS. There is a need that developers should integrate the apps for wearable devices and smartphones and this trend is likely to pick speed in 2020.
The emergence of 5G Wireless Services: 5G wireless mobile technology is still in a very nascent stage in 2019 but will emerge as a top technology for smart wireless devices in 2020 and beyond due to its fastest speed which is more than 100 times the speed that 4G technology provides.

So with 5G enabled mobile devices there is likely hood that app developers will focus their app development for future with 5G technology in mind so that the users can avail faster network speed and get enhanced performance from the apps they will be using on 5G enabled devices.
Blockchain-enabled apps: Blockchain technology gained prominence with cryptocurrency. But this brilliant technology use is not restricted to cryptocurrency but has used in many more fields. This is a decentralized database, chain of blocks existing simultaneously on more than one computer and these chains grow constantly as new data is entered and recorded.
