TikTok was the most downloaded app in the world in February in the Google and Apple stores. Adding all installations made on Android phones and iPhone (iOS), the short video app got more than 56 million downloads in the last month alone. The data are from a report published this Friday (5) by SensorTower, a site that specializes in digital app consulting.

The ranking of the most downloaded apps of the month also brings Facebook in second place, followed by Instagram in third. In the top 5, WhatsApp is in fourth place, followed by Telegram. Also noteworthy is the appearance of Clubhouse for the first time in the top 10 most downloaded apps in the App Store.

The countries with the most downloads for TikTok in the month were China and the United States, with 18% and 11% of total installations, respectively. Second place in February’s ranking, meanwhile, belongs to Facebook, which got more than 45 million downloads in the App Store and Play Store, of which 27% belong to India and 8% to the United States.

Instagram, WhatsApp, and Telegram follow in the top five, accompanied by the TikTok-like short video app MX TakaTak, which ranked sixth overall but took first place in several downloads in the Play Store. In tenth place in the overall ranking also appears another app with the same purpose, Moj, which appears for the second consecutive time among the most downloaded apps. Both apps are Indian, and their popularity may be related to the banning of TikTok in India.

In the App Store, Clubhouse’s appearance in seventh place is eye-catching, but not surprising, as the iPhone (iOS)-only voice chat app has become quite popular in recent weeks. Among the most popular apps in Apple’s store is also the video editor Jianying Vlog, developed by ByteDance, the same creator as TikTok.

It is worth mentioning that the charting produced by SensorTower took place during February 1-28, 2021, and rules out the downloading of games and factory pre-installed apps on smartphones. Also, apps with more than one version are counted as one, i.e. the Lite version of Facebook, for example, adds up the downloads with the main app. Check out, in the lists below, the most downloaded apps in the Play Store and App Store during the month of February:
