TikTok becomes second most-downloaded app in world

TikTok, a video-sharing social networking app, has dethroned Facebook to become the second most downloaded app in the world in 2019. The platform owned by China-based ByteDance had a stupendous year and came second to Whatsapp in terms of downloads.

As per market analyst Sensor Tower’s ranking, both TikTok and its Chinese counterpart Douyin amassed a total of 740 million downloads in 2019. The reports consist of worldwide downloads for Google Play Store, iPhone and iPad. They, however, did not include data from Apple apps, pre-installed Google apps and Android downloads from third-party stores based in China.
