For the year 2010, Apps emerged, their limitation was the availability of space on smartphones, so downloads were not an effective option for shoppers. Finally, in 2020 a new alternative emerges, Conversational Apps, where through instant messaging Apps a complete integration of: virtual assistant + artificial intelligence + electronic commerce portals + electronic invoicing can be carried out? Of course.
