Social video app TikTok has reached 1.5 billion downloads worldwide on Apple app store as well as Google Play. India leads the chart with 466.8 million or about 31 percent of all unique installs.
In 2019, the app accumulated 614 million downloads – 6 percent more than it had last year, reported mobile intelligence firm Sensor Tower.
The platform has seen most of its growth coming from India, one of the fast adopted apps in 2019, driving up 277.6 million downloads so far this year, or roughly 45 percent of all global installs.
China generated the second-largest amount of downloads with 45.5 million, or 7.4 percent, while the US is No 3 with 37.6 million installs, or about 6 percent, this year. To recall, TikTok crossed the 1 billion downloads milestone in February 2019, taking just under nine months to generate a further 500 million installs.
The figure does not include installs from third-party Android stores in the country, said Sensor Tower.
That’s not all, TikTok with 614 million downloads currently is the third-most downloaded non-gaming app of the year, behind WhatsApp at the top with 707.4 million installs and Facebook Messenger at second spot with 636.2 million.
Facebook is fourth with 587 million downloads and Instagram at the fifth spot with 376.2 million. This gives Facebook and its co-owned products a huge majority in the app world, even after the social networking giant has gone through numerous data mishap sagas in recent times.
