5 Top Android App Development Trends in 2019

Android app development latest trends have become the talk of the whole world heavily affected by the presence of digital technologies. And, another reason is people’s becoming more tech-conscious than before.

This era witnesses the evolving of Android continuously and uncountable mobile platforms have merged in the IT industry. All these points come up as preoccupations before mobile app development companies.

Although we have seen innumerable changes in the methodology of mobile app development companies in the last years, in this blog, we will deal with 5 top Android app development latest trends 2019 listed below:

1. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine learning:

The term Artificial Intelligence (AI) means the capability of working like the human mind of a computer and performing tasks which require intelligence that human beings are endowed with.

Here, we mean that the machines are only programmed to do repetitive and specific tasks, but they can also do different types of tasks.

Machine learning, an AI part, includes data process in machine and learning by itself, without our teaching or guidance. You need to have a great deal of knowledge and research to learn machine language.

To overcome, there is a firebase MLKit comprising Google cloud vision API, tensorflow Lite, Neural Network API. All these features are in one single SDK.

With this MLKit, mobile developers implemented features of Machine learning given below:

Recognition of text: text recognition is rendered for free for a mobile developer. These can identify only latin alphabets on mobile devices. In on-device recognition, this will return photographed structure documents with full text that comprises words, blocks, paragraphs, and symbols.

Landmark recognition: It is considered one of the best features. By means of it, it’s much easier for us to recognize famous places. It fundamentally works on the cloud and returns the result in SDK.

Face recognition: It is capable of detecting the image of a face and returns the boundaries and also usable for the verification of photos.

Barcode scanning: With MLKit, there are thirteen different formats of the barcode. It not only takes care of custom data, but it also handles some predefined events like texting, detection of Wi-fi connection and adding calendar events.

Image labelling: Image labelling has a heap of uses. For instance, if someone uploads a photo suggesting the user for a TAG this one type of labelling and the other one is to name the photo group in the gallery.

2. IOT (Internet Of Things)

IOT or Internet of Things has turned out as a very advanced concept for us. By means of this concept, our daily work has become much easier only by connecting an electronic device with our smartphones.

Nowadays, a large number of home automation companies are striving for coming up with better smart home technology that smartphones and apps can handle.

4 top IOT features:

Safety: Safety must be kept in mind. Both receipts and Creators will have safety as the main fact to point. The automation company will implement the electronics having all important safety measures. It the smartphone and data used by us to operate the device.

Energy: Energy is one of the most important IOT features. Energy harvesting, power efficiency, and charging infrastructure are necessary intelligent factors to keep in mind in the ecosystem.

Connectivity: Connectivity in IOT has turned out as more than the slap on Wifi. Network accessibility and compatibility can be enabled due to connectivity. Accessibility means reaching network and compatibility means having the common capability of data consumption and production.

Sensing: Sensing technology will allow us to create an experience which will reflect an awareness of the physical world. In a nutshell, Analog input from the physical world, but it provides a better understanding of the complicated world.

3. Cloud-based mobile apps

Cloud Application, a software program, is designed to access the Internet. Due to the high demand for Cloud technology, Android specialists are paying attention to Cloud-based applications.

The technology lessens the load to access data by numerous kinds of portable computing devices.

Top 3 features of Cloud-based mobile apps given below:

Security: We are provided with better data security for commercial businesses.

More space for data: We are given more data space for online cloud app, for instance: Dropbox, Google Drive, and so on.

Flexibility: We get more flexibility for data streaming like video, audio, online gaming, and the like.

4. Android Jetpack

Android Jetpack is a set of tools, components, and guidance to build the best Android apps capable of running faster.

This Jetpack parts put all the existing support libraries, architectures and structure them to cope with main issues like app management, backward compatibility, and so on.

Google structures all these things in a single pack with four categories: architecture, foundation, UI, and behaviour.

Android Jetpack components are found as unbundled libraries that are not a part of the underlying Android platform which means that one can adopt each component anytime at any speed.

If you find any new Android Jetpack functionality available, then you can add it to your app. After that, you can deploy your app to play store by giving users all features in a single day.

Furthermore, one can run the app in various versions of the platform. It is because Android Jetpack components are developed by providing backward compatibility.

The Jetpack is produced with the separation of interest, testability and Kotlin Integration. Due to this, it is possible to build a high-quality app using less code.

The following are the 5 top features of Android Jetpack:

Navigation: if we use this, then we will be in a position to handle in-app navigation. This represents all in-app destination as graphs.

App screen navigation is done with XML attributes. This includes the deep-linking to destination for dealing with notifications.

Architecture components: The architectures are used for the separation of the UI from application logic for simple maintenance and increase testability.

To cope with these issues, Google made it simpler with architecture components. There are two concept types in architecture components.

Live Data: If any changes occur in the data source, this notifies the view.

View Model: It has all the live data objects, and it doesn’t disturb even when the device changes its orientation.

Slice: In Android, the slice concept is very important and effective. Slice is used to develop custom layouts in the search app. Using all these, users can use the application from the Google provider application, which is inbuilt.

5. Kotlin

Kotlin is known for having a statically typed programming language running on Java Virtual Machine (JVM). Kotlin is supported by Android studio 3.0 and higher.

It’s easy for us to create new with Kotlin files by adding files to the existing project and after that convert java code to Kotlin.

It comprises features for immutability and nullability. Using that, we can build our apps much safer with the ideal quality and performance.

You must know that Kotlin code utilizes all the existing tools of Android studio like lint checking, autocomplete, debugging, refactoring and so on. We can save time and money on debug and QA with Kotlin.

4 top features of Kotlin:

Compatibility: It is adaptable with JDK 6, it is confirmed that Kotlin runs on older devices without any problem.

Performance: Kotline Application can perform like java application.

Interoperability: It is interoperable with Java. it makes possible the use of all the files of Android to Kotlin application.

Faster Compile Time: We find compile time for Kotlin much faster than Java.


In this blog, we dealt with Android app development trends 2019 to give you a clear idea of the demand and expectations from the trends in android app development.

We discussed Kotlin, Android Jetpack, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning, Cloud-based mobile apps, and IOT (Internet of Things) to keep you updated with the Android app development latest trends.

And, ValueCoders is regarded as an ideal android development company capable of changing your dream into fruition. If you want to hire android app developers, then you must look for this reliable software development company that can help you reach your goal.
