The numbers were released by the consultancy Tower sensor, specializing in mobile application market activities. TikTok's main download market is India, which has recorded 466.8 million downloads of the tool, representing 31% of the total. China was the second place with the largest number of installations, accounting for 173.2 million. The United States comes next with 123.8 million.

TikTok had reached 1 billion unique downloads in February this year, reaching 1 billion active users in June. By way of comparison, Instagram hit the first billion active users as early as 2018, putting the Facebook group's social network ahead of Chinese software. However, Instagram has only accumulated 238 million downloads so far this year.
Interestingly, TikTok is the only app among the five most downloaded in the world that does not belong to the Mark Zuckerberg conglomerate. Even so, the app seems to pose a threat to Facebook, as the US company even released the Lasso app, which would be a version of the program itself, available only in the United States.
Recently, Instagram also added to Stories the Scenes feature, which is very similar to how TikTok works. Available for testing only in Brazil, the function allows you to create takes short and group them into a larger video to be published in the stories, using music and effects, as well as on the Chinese social network.
