Telegram Was The Most Downloaded Non-Gaming App in January 2021

Sensor Tower released its latest numbers for the most downloaded apps, revealing that Telegram led the race as the most downloaded non-game app in January. The application has been downloaded 63 million times, which is 4 times more than in the same period last year. This sudden increase in downloads was caused by the rather controversial change in WhatsApp’s privacy policy.

The largest number of Telegram downloads came from India, with 24% of the total number, ie 15 million downloads last month. The second highest number of Telegram downloads came from Indonesia, with more than 6 million installations.
