Believe it or not, we didn’t depend on smartphone technology at all 2 decades ago. The advancements in communications and AI jump-started our future, and now, in 2020, 3.7 billion people have miniature computers in their pockets. 

These devices are capable of doing everything, from communication to mobile web development. Artificial intelligence is now integrated into virtually every aspect of your device and enhances features while creating brand new advancements. Some estimates show that AI makes a staggering 35,000 decisions on your phone every day. 

Today we want to take a closer look at 3 of the best benefits smartphone AI brings to the lives of consumers. 

Show Curated App and Product Options

One of the most profound improvements is in the way we offer products and services to customers. Long gone are the days where you would cold call or go door to door for sales meetings. 

Now, smartphones track the behavior of customers in real-time, based on permissions. Using this data, the AI programs through your website, social media, and even email marketing deliver personalized content to customers. 

This advancement is excellent for consumers because it means they can look forward to seeing information about stuff that they are interested in. Let’s say you’re in the market for a new washer and run a quick Google search and visit a few websites. Once Google’s AI gets the signal, you may start to see promotions that match your needs. 

Many developers are also creating apps for businesses to help them deliver even more personalized promotions to consumers through their smartphones. When you consider that mobile app sales tend to outperform website sales by 300%, it’s no surprise that companies want to turn their online store into an AI-integrated application. 

Voice Search and AI Assistants 

Voice search and AI assistants have exploded in popularity over the last several years. Devices like Amazon’s Alexa filled households, and people started using Google Assistant to navigate their smartphone. 

It took several years before the AI program was capable of understanding complex speech patterns and long-form phrases. But the result now is a fantastic system that gives users more accessibility options that were just science fiction at the turn of the century. 

Google is using this technology on smartphones to give users a streamlined experience whenever they use their device. The algorithm listens to what people say and uses context clues to deliver relevant search results. As time goes on, more speech data is gathered from consumers that use this feature, and we are going to see more improvements in the future. 

Health and Wellness Monitoring 

Here’s another amazing benefit that you would expect to see in a futuristic movie released in the 1980s. The AI in our smartphones can help us monitor our health and wellness in real-time. You can check your heart rate, calories burned, steps taken, sleep patterns, and much more from your device. 

Companies like Samsung release their phones with an app called Samsung Health. If you sign up, the app will allow you to fill in your information, and make an educated guess about your heart rate, stress level, and suggested water intake based on your age, gender, and activity level. 

The more our devices get to know us, the more accurate the feedback. As more people spend time with their phones for health and wellness tracking, these programs are going to have up to date information on a generous portion of people with phones. All of this translates to a more personal, interactive experience for consumers. 


There are plenty more benefits associated with AI and smartphones. The three mentioned here today are significant because they cover some of the most critical areas of our lives; health, shopping, and accessibility.
