UX Trends

1. Estimated time

Many of us would have noticed written ‘estimated time’ in blog posts, that is nothing but a calculated average time the blog would take to be read. if user sees the ‘estimated time‘ mentioned in the blog itself, gets some idea about the blog. In this way the probability of reading increases. It also helps in decreasing the bounce rate of a web page.

2. Chat bots

Chat bots are nothing but an application which helps users on your website to find the information or product more conveniently. Generally, users have to check the navigation, or the search filters to see what they want, sometimes they find easily sometimes not at all. So, to save the time of user and prevent him from exiting the site chat bots intervene them and gets them directly what they want.

3. Gesture and voice based interface

You would have used as well like Google’s Personal Assistant, Apple’s Siri and Bing’s Cortana. They give you instant results by reading your voice. There is no need to type and edit again and again.

4. Micro Interactions

These are small animations which make it more appealing. The main intention of adding micro interaction is to let the user know and to make him sure that some action has been performed by him. For example, while clicking a call-to-action button if it changes its colour, it easily lets the user know that the action has been performed and everything is working fine.

5. Scroll Triggered Animations

Instead of telling a long story you can allow your users to take more interest by adding scroll triggered animations. It is a type of animation where when you start scrolling the page, the visual effects and elements start to form.

6. Utilizing white spaces

Rarely someone thinks that even white spaces can be used to create great designs. White spaces are important to remove clutters from any piece of content. It also improves readability by getting the contents focused easily. The logic is simple, it’s easy to identify someone in open rather than in crowd, in case if you are crowd freak them definitely you will exit.
