User interface and user experience have made tremendous progress in the past few years. Here are some of the latest trends that are making headlines!
- Virtual Voice Assistants
Voice assistants are perhaps one of the most exciting features to have enhanced both UI and UX. Alexa, Siri, Cortana, and Google’s Assistant are excellent examples. With consumers welcoming this trend with open arms, designers are mulling about taking things up a notch. To enhance the experience, designers are looking for ways to make voice assistants more personal, enjoyable and efficient.
- Foldable Devices
More than the folding part, it’s the “unfolding” of the new smart phones that is the more exciting. Samsung and Huawei have rolled out phones that can be unfolded into ultra-portable and useful tablets. The UX and UI are seamless and beautifully adapt to whatever orientation within fractions of a second.
- Brilliant Animations
High quality images and videos on frameless device screens are the next big fad. Businesses are using hi-tech features to sell their products. These hi-tech features include bolder colours, accentuated typography, illustrations and micro animations. Using these features, messages can be conveyed to the consumers without using even a single word. Such profound animations have increased the UI and UX tremendously.
