Telegram is leading as most downloaded non-gaming app worldwide.

You thought Instagram or WhatsApp was the most downloaded app? you thought wrong. Am not on Telegram but clearly whether I download it or not the app is still doing significantly well as it’s leading the rest of the app pack with more than 63 million installs which was about 4 times its downloads one year ago.

24% of Telgram downloads were from India with more than 15 million installs. Second country that had the most downloads was from Indonesia with over 6 million.
