Artiﬁcial Intelligence (AI) features with Android app development; many
smartphones will perform advanced technology roles such as landmark
recognition, image labeling, barcode scanning, face recognition, and text
recognition. AI features in Android phones will be able to simplify work for
users, as well as build a fantastic user experience.
While Android application development trends continue to come and pass by, it is
important to evaluate the latest technology updates and seize opportunities.
However, it is equally important to resist the temptation of implementing all
trends. Carefully consider several factors such as technical expertise, budget,
business requirements, infrastructure before making a plunge.
