TikTok Overtakes Facebook, Becoming the Most Downloaded App of 2020

An industry report released from mobile trends has put TikTok as the number one most downloaded app of 2020. TikTok jumped the list by three spots, overtaking Facebook, WhatsApp and Zoom, which experienced incredible growth due to its reliance during the pandemic.

The last spot in the top 5 was taken by Instagram, a social media app that is popular with the younger demographic. As per a report on mobile trends from data analytics platform App Annie, the pandemic helped accelerate mobile app usage, with more people spending more time on their mobile devices than any other time in recent history.

In fact, video conferencing apps like Zoom saw up to 200 percent growth, with schools and businesses turning massively to it, helping students and colleagues stay in contact during the earlier stages of the lockdown.

Facebook Messenger, Google Meet, Snapchat, Telegram and Like complete the rest of the top 10 most downloaded apps. The report says that the biggest categories of growth were games, finance, and business, with Brazil, India and Indonesia being the largest contributors of growth on Google Play.

In terms of games downloaded this year, Free Fire took top spot, followed closely by Subway Surfers, Among Us, PUBG Mobile and Gardenscapes: New Acres.

With the year already coming to a close, it will be interesting to see which apps maintain their lofty standards and what new apps creep into the top 10 next year.
