To date, TikTok short video hosting has turned two years old. During this period, the site managed to gain serious popularity, overtaking the number of downloads of many “whales” of the market, including the WhatsApp messenger. The COVID-19 pandemic raging around the world makes people sit at home, and the application pretty well brightens up their loneliness.
At the end of February, there were only two free applications on Google Play that were more popular, a month later TikTok became the second most popular, with more than one billion installations.
Recall that the most popular programs on Google Play at the moment are Google services, including YouTube, and Facebook, which have broken the bar of 5 billion downloads. If TikTok continues to further increase its influence, it will soon add to this list.
