Amazon and Flipkart are on Cloud nine right now. The reason being that both these mobile apps have touched the 100-million or 10-crore, download mark on Google Play Store. Google generally updates its data occasionally and the number of downloads is also categorized in ranges and thus, doesn’t really provide an absolute number.
Under such calculations, even less than a month ago both these Indian e-commerce apps had been placed in the 50-100 million categories.
Other statistics state of media and entertainment app Hotstar to be the first India-specific app to cross the 10 crore download in the country. My-Jio app crossed this mark back in August. The other apps of Flipkart’s other businesses, namely Myntra, Jabong, and PhonePe are more or less in the 10-50 million categories.
Talking more of Ola and Snapdeal, they have been downloaded more than 50 million times but less than 100 million. Also, other apps like the Paytm and Hike, have claimed of more than 100 million users but not yet crossed the threshold on Google Play Store and are still ranging in the 50 million and 100 million categories. Further, Music-streaming apps Gaana and Saavn have been also placed in the same category.
To conclude, the top downloaded apps in India include WhatsApp, Facebook, Messenger by Facebook, UC Browser of Alibaba, and TrueCaller. However, the India-specific download numbers are still not known for these apps. None of the Google apps like Search, Gmail, Maps, and Chrome figure in the top downloads as these apps come pre-installed on almost all of the Android phones.
