TikTok crosses 2 Billion downloads
As people across the world have been confined to the comfort of their homes, the popularity of TikTok has skyrocketed. The short-video sharing application has crossed 2 billion downloads across Google Play Store and The App Store.
The Play Store contributed 75.5%(1.5 billion) of the total downloads, while the App Store recorded 24.5% (495.2 million) of the total downloads reported by the Bytedance-owned platform. Notably, TikTok registered over a 50% surge in the number of downloads in the past two weeks.
TikTok, the widely popular video sharing app developed by one of the world’s most valued startups (ByteDance), continues to grow rapidly despite suspicion from the U.S. as more people look for ways to keep themselves entertained amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The global app and its Chinese version, called Douyin, have amassed over 2 billion downloads on Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store, mobile insight firm Sensor Tower said Wednesday.
