Website development is advancing phenomenally, and each year there are exciting new features that make web browsing more pleasurable for the end-user. Companies will be excited to know what to look out for and, of course, web developers will be trying out and applying some of the new technologies available in 2022. Here are some of the trends in the spotlight this year.
Augmented Reality & Virtual Reality
People today want an enhanced user experience when accessing a website. Grab their attention and keep them on your site longer by using augmented reality and virtual reality. This can include a tour of your business facility or a virtual guide to the products or services you are offering. Studies show that the mixed realities industry is expected to grow by over $9.9 billion by 2024, so it’s definitely the future.
AI Continues To Develop
Artificial Intelligence seems to have dominated website development in the past year, and it continues to stay in the limelight. It continues to fascinate users and has positive impacts on business productivity, making it a winner all-around. If you have not incorporated virtual assistants or chatbots into your website yet, speak to your developer about upgrading to include AI.
With hacks causing havoc worldwide, cyber security is top priority for website development in 2022. Ask your web developer to advise you on the best options, but whatever you do, don’t leave this out of your overall website plan.
Dark mode or ‘night mode’ is a darker coloured interface that reduces eye fatigue, saves energy and makes websites more appealing. This is an interesting new twist on the traditional light background used in websites for years. Since people are spending more time on screens, this is likely to gain popularity in years to come.
More Mobile Focus
Lastly, a key trend for website development this year is creating sites with mobile use in mind. With over 10 billion mobile connections across the globe, developers cannot ignore the fact that any website must be accessible and compatible with mobile devices. So, make sure your website is optimised and mobile-friendly!
