WhatsApp regained more downloads than any other app

WhatsApp regained its throne after several months of TikTok leadership and is the most downloaded application of November according to data collected by SensorTower.

After months of leadership on TikTok, WhatsApp regained the global sceptre in September. TikTok continues its good race. Time goes by, but some things don’t change, and one of them is that WhatsApp continues to be the go-to app that all smartphone users want to have.

As seen in the table above, the messaging app owned by Facebook ranks first in the set of most downloaded apps and also in the Play Store, while in the IOS universe section, it only climbs one position compared to October and has to settle for sixth place.

In total, WhatsApp has accumulated 58 million downloads in November, having India as its stronghold market with 17.4 million downloads and Nigeria second with 5.8 million. Between them, they accumulate 40% of the downloads in the last month.

It should be noted that the classification does not take into account mobile games. WhatsApp already allows you to personalize your chats with new funds.

Losing the top spot isn’t overly negative news for TikTok, as the app for short videos of Chinese origin continues to be in the most relevant positions and, more importantly, to generate an impressive volume of business. So, TikTok achieved sales of $ 123 million in November, which is an increase of 370% from the same period last year.

The month of November also put Facebook in third position, while it is the first time in 2020 that Zoom is not in the top 5 worldwide. Facebook’s strong performance is directly linked to Zoom’s decline. TikTok, on the other hand, has mostly benefited from its Chinese version. This is because Douyin continues to be successful in China and currently accounts for 12% of all TikTok downloads worldwide.

Finally, we still have an American weather app and Instagram as the most popular starting in November.

Of course, it should be noted here that 85% of TikTok’s revenues come from its Chinese “version” Douyin, while the United States scrapes 8% of its profits. In terms of downloads, the figure for November was 55 million.
