The short-video app TikTok has seen its billionth download on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store combined. It has also rivalled Facebook and surpassed Instagram for app install counts in 2018. It was also the most-downloaded non-game app in the US in January 2019.

TikTok, the short video-sharing platform, has passed the billion-download mark in terms of both its iOS and Android apps. This statistic has been reported by Sensor Tower, in a report that also claims that the app was now also one of the most popular non-game download on phones in 2018.

Of its approximate billion downloads, approximately 663 million of them were completed last year. This means TikTok did better than Instagram (with about 444 million) in these terms, and came close to Facebook (711 million) in the same. These figures landed TikTok 4th place in the download rankings for non-game apps in 2018.

This app was also reported as the best-performing non-game app in the United States in January 2019, and the third most popular non-game globally in the same month, with 71.3 million downloads. These figures excluded data on Android downloads in China, TikTok's home country. They also showed that the app is particularly popular in India, which provided 25% of its total downloads to date.
