Telegram has now become the most downloaded non-gaming app worldwide in January 2021, with 24 percent of the total downloads coming from India, followed by Indonesia at 10 percent, according to the data released by Sensor Tower.
“Telegram has attained the top position in the overall downloads (non-game) on Google Play Store moving from ninth position in the previous month, December 2020. The social messenger has also entered the list of top 10 most downloaded (non-game) apps on App Store, directly gaining the fourth position,” the Sensor Tower report said.
It is quite an achievement considering that Telegram was ranked at ninth position in terms of downloads on Google Play in the month of December.
After Telegram, TikTok came in a close second followed by Signal and Facebook in January.
