WhatsApp achieves 5 trillion Android installations, the second non-Google app to do that

WhatsApp is the world’s most popular mobile chat app, with approximately 1.6 billion active monthly users.

Facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp for Android has now scored a whopping five billion downloads, making it just the second non-Google app to get this landmark achieved.

As with most Android applications that reach enormous amounts of installations, this number includes not only downloads from the Play Store but also pre-installed copies such as Samsung and Huawei that have previously bundled the app with some smartphones, Android Police reported.

WhatsApp is the world’s most popular mobile messenger app with around 1.6 billion active monthly users, outstripping Facebook Messenger at 1.3 billion and WeChat at 1.1 billion users in 2019, according to Statista. It is the world’s third most popular social network after Facebook and YouTube.
