With the outbreak of Coronavirus pandemic and video conferencing a new trend to connect with people or arrange office meetings or lectures, the downloads for video conferencing application Zoom skyrocketed and broke the record at many app stores just in one quarter. Data provided by mobile analytics firm Sensor Tower has revealed that Zoom has now broken records for iOS and has become the most downloaded application for Apple store, surpassing Tiktok. As many as 94 million downloads have been made in the second quarter of this year (April 1 to June 30).
Notable, the application received its maximum downloads from India as Zoom was installed 68 million times in India and 41 million times in the US. This has blown the record for TikTok which is quite famous among the younger generation. The record of highest download on iOS was broken by TikTok in Q1 this year with 67 million downloads.
