India was the highest contributing country for downloads of Telegram with 24 percent (15 million installs) followed by Indonesia with 10 percent. The sudden spark in the installation of Telegram in India can be credited to the controversy of WhatsApp’s privacy policy. Taking a short glance at the December 2020 data, TikTok was topping the charts while Telegram was not even in the top five. But the tables have turned within a month favoring Telegram.

On the top ten list of overall non-gaming app downloads, we have Telegram, TikTok, Signal, Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, ZOOM, MX TakaTak, Snapchat, and Messenger. The pre-installed Apple apps and Google apps were not included in the list.
