The trend of downloading apps in 2020 has been a little different than before, especially after the lockdown worldwide and many people are connecting online through various apps. Sensor Tower revealed the list of estimated top 10 non-gaming apps downloads for the last month.

In April 2020, ZOOM has been the most downloaded non-gaming app both on Google Play and App Store, with almost 131 million installs, showing a 60 times more growth than in April 2019. The most number of downloads, around 18.2 percent of the total downloads were in India only, followed by the USA with 14.3 percent downloads.

The second most downloaded non-gamic app was TikTok, having around 107 million downloads in April 2020, a 2.5 times more increase in a year. With around 22 percent of the total downloads, TikTok was also downloaded the most in India and then again followed by the USA with 9.4 percent of the total downloads.

However, the third most downloaded app on the App Store alone in April was Google Meet and followed by Microsoft Teams. Netflix on App Store managed the fifth spot, restricting Instagram on number six and YouTube being the seventh most downloaded app by iOS users.

Tax Report had more installs on App Store (at number eight on the list) than Facebook, which managed to be at the ninth spot followed by Google Classroom, the last on the list of top 10 most downloaded apps in App Store.

Facebook was the third most downloaded app on Google Play Store, followed by WhatsApp and Aarogya Setu. The Facebook Messenger also made it to the list (at number six) beating Instagram (at the seventh spot) and Samsung Security Update at number eight.
