(Software) Bots are predicted to be the next big thing after mobile apps. They are like personal assistants and may come with a chat interface. Some bots also come with a natural language interface to recognize speech, etc.
If you want to book movie tickets, for example, you tell a bot the name of the theater and no. of tickets – it will book for you. If you want to know about the weather or route, ask the bot and it will search/fetch the information for you. As you can see, one bot has the potential to replace multiple apps on a mobile.
