So, taking into account that many people are at home right now, without much to do, the Play Store and the App Store have been very busy! And even though COVID-19 is creating a number of financial problems in various sectors, it does not appear to be affecting any of the application platforms in the smartphone world.
Thus, according to the most recent disclosure by App Annie, the App Store and Play Store together achieved a total of $ 23.4 billion in sales in the first quarter of 2020. The Apple platform achieved a total of 15 billion , while the Google platform achieved 'only' 8 billion.
Have App Store and Play Store beat sales records? It seems so!
Therefore, it is important to note that both platforms recorded an increase of 5% in this first quarter of 2020, compared to last year. That said, the countries that contributed most to App Store sales were essentially China and the USA. As for the Play Store, the countries that contributed most were the USA, South Korea and Japan.
In addition, we also know that App Store users mainly installed applications such as TikTok, Tinder, Youtube and Netflix. While in the Play Store, users installed more games, social media, Disney + and Twitch apps.
So, you can already see that both platforms are overcoming COVID-19 very well, and above all helping people who are at home and who need to be distracted. Still, as things stand, it is likely that these sales will have everything to increase further in the second quarter of this year.
In short, continue to contribute to the resounding results of these two platforms and stay at home to fulfill this quarantine in the best way. After all, none of these figures would have been achieved if the population had not been complying with the required measures.
