The best apps for Android are usually those which are most downloaded by active users. Google Play Store has a list of recommended apps which are essential for daily use that will cover nearly all of the activities of an ordinary Android user. Some of these apps are to be purchased at the Google Play Store but most of these, especially the most popular Android apps, can be downloaded for free. Let’s see which of them made it to the record of Google Play Store’s top ten most downloaded apps.

 

  1. Facebook

4.119 billion downloads

Are you even surprised? I believe that no matter what propaganda may arise against Facebook, it will remain to be a record-breaking mobile app which is obviously enjoyed by Android users.

 

  1. Facebook Messenger

3.408 billion downloads

Messenger is one of Zuckerberg’s smartest moves. Why, of course, it is an app that is in partnership with the topmost downloaded mobile app. Besides that, it is a highly efficient communication app and easy on the hands, too.

 

  1. WhatsApp

2.979 billion downloads

We have to hand it down to this top developer who once again made a wise call by buying-out the most popular instant messaging tool. Facebook’s developer snatched all the top three spots!

 

  1. Instagram

1.843 billion downloads

Another Facebook-owned app is on a high rank and places number four on the list. Instagram is another popular app which offers a great platform for sharing and connecting.

 

  1. Skype

1.039 billion downloads

Being the first of becoming a popular video-calling app, Skype was easily embraced by mobile users and is up until now at the top of its kind.

 

  1. Subway Surfers

1.025 billion downloads

Did you see that coming? Subway Surfers, which I must say is not the first of its category, became the most downloaded Android game application.

 

  1. Twitter

833.858 million downloads

There goes our third most downloaded social media app.

 

  1. Clean Master: Space Cleaner and Antivirus

833.739 million downloads

Clean Master became a famous mobile space cleaner and antivirus for Android but others would rather say that it is not necessarily the best of its category.

 

  1. Candy Crush Saga

805.826 million downloads

I bet you’ve been waiting for this! I present to you Candy Crush Saga, the favorite Android game placing number nine on our list.

 

  1. Snapchat

782.837 million downloads

Snapchat and Instagram may have a shared feature but it still managed to climb up to the top ten most downloaded app for Android.
