Telegram is one of the top 5 apps for downloads without significant marketing costs

Telegram ranked fifth among mobile apps in the number of downloads in the first quarter of 2022.

Messenger has been downloaded more than 100 million times since the beginning of the year. Most downloads are done by Android users - there are about 80 million downloads from the Play Market. More than 20 million downloads have been made through the App Store.

However, TikTok remains the leader in the number of downloads, it has been downloaded more than 180 million times in three months.

The next three places are occupied by Meta applications (until October 2021 - Facebook). Despite a 7% drop in downloads, Instagram ranked No. 2 in the rankings. Facebook is in third place, WhatsApp is in fourth place.

Messenger founder Pavel Durov congratulated the users on their achievements. In five years, Telegram alone will not spend billions of dollars to “buy” ads or downloads, he said.

According to App Annie, in 2021, Telegram ranked first in terms of active user growth.
