Instagram overtakes TikTok in downloads

Instagram became the world's most downloaded app in the fourth quarter of 2021, overtaking TikTok. According to TechCrunch, it has been downloaded nearly 180 million times.

TikTok, which had been the all-time leader in downloads since the spring of 2020, when it was overtaken by Zoom, came in second in the rankings. 

The publication attributes this to the delayed effect of the app ban in India, which was announced in July 2020. 

Since then, the number of Instagram downloads has grown steadily, and if at the beginning of 2020 India accounted for about one-fifth of the total number of app downloads, now it is at least 39% of new app users from this country.
