TikTok tops the list of the most downloaded apps worldwide for July 2021, beating Facebook and Instagram
TikTok was the most downloaded non-gaming app worldwide for July 2021 with over 63 million downloads, according to the data from app research firm SensorTower. Facebook came in second place with 53 million installs.
Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp rounded out the top five most installed non-gaming apps worldwide for the month of July. Meanwhile, Snapchat, Zoom, Telegram, CapCut, and Google Meet rounded out the top 10 non-gaming downloaded apps in July.
According to SensorTower, TikTok’s largest installs came from China at 15%, followed by the United States at 9 percent. The largest downloads for Facebook in the month of July came from India at 27% followed by the United States at 7%.
TikTok’s July record-breaking downloads further show that the Chinese social app remains popular among US teens despite the government’s attempts to ban the app in the United States. TikTok was able to overcome series of setbacks in 2020 after the US and India banned the app due to national security concerns.
