Beacon technology connects and transmits the data to the smart device. It enables location-based searching and improves interaction. Let me explain in simple words. For example, you have a superstore; with this technology, the application will notify you of time when people are around your store.
Beacon is the latest development in the field of proximity marketing and time- location technology. If we talk about future scope, then it has enormous scope in the retail section and proximity marketing, but it needs successful integration with IoT. You are already using some apps that are using this technology. Some of the examples are healthcare, hotels, and others.
Bacon is nothing but a data-gathering tool that allows businesses to understand the services and user behavior. The primary beneficial industry is logistics and transportation. They can track the logistics more accurately.
Accelerated Mobile Pages- AMP
Do you like to wait for a few minutes or say 45-50 seconds while mobile pages load? Of course, no! We just switch the tab and open another result. So to solve this problem related to loading of the pages, google introduced AMP in collab with Twitter. It helps the developers to improve performance rate and reduce the bounce speed.
AMP can maximize user retention and offer a better experience to the users. Even Google announced its AMP listings as an official integration of its search results on mobile. There was also an announcement that says about the provision of a mobile search box that assists users in finding the mobile-friendly design of the website.
APM-Application Performance Management & EMM- Enterprise Mobile Management
APM and EMM are two elements that are a critical part of mobile app development. APM integrated into Google in 2016. It was introduced to improve application speed and overall performance. And as a result, APM preferred by many QA testers for the app testing process.
EMM is a platform that improves the security of mobile devices. Employees use it in the business that streamlined the business process and others. EMM also exchange the data over the app and improve work efficiency. It includes components like maintaining apps, app security, and finance management.

Wait for a year, and after that, it will rock the world. How can we say that? Go and search for a 5G network, and you can see a lot of talking and thinking about this upcoming technology. According to reports, 5G will be 100X faster than a 4G network with higher data security, AR, and 3D gaming.

Accessibility is the major attraction of these apps. One can use it on the android platform without installing, and even many apps offer a trial version as well.
