TikTok hits 3 billion downloads

ByteDance’s TikTok hits 3 billion downloads globally, SensorTower today reported. Sensor Tower Store Intelligence data reveals that the app—including the iOS version of its Chinese release, Douyin, and excluding third-party Android marketplaces—has now passed 3 billion installs globally from across the App Store and Google Play.

According to SensorTower, TikTok is the only non-Facebook app to hit 3 billion installs, a milestone only reached by WhatsApp, Messenger, Facebook, and Instagram.

SensorTower says TikTok was the most downloaded and highest grossing non-game app globally in the first half of 2021, reaching nearly 383 million first-time installs.

SensorTower shows that new downloads of the app were down 38 percent year-over-year, a decline partially because of its removal from India’s app stores.
