Its estimated 31 million combined download total across the iOS App Store and Google Play in the United States was more than double the tally of silver medalist TikTok.

In the last quarter of 2019, Google amassed close to 850 million downloads compared to Facebook's almost 800 million, analytics firm Sensor Tower revealed recently.

Two months after Disney's long-anticipated entrance into the streaming video on demand, its mobile app service has been downloaded almost 41 million times across the App Store and has generated an estimated $97.2 million in user spending.

The revenue from TikTok grew 540% yearly, but most of that comes from China, where the app also offers in-app purchases of whatever people are selling or influencing.

Did you download Disney+? The worldwide data was taken from the App Store, looking at iPhones and iPads for October 1 though December 31.

The most popular game worldwide and in both the App Store and Google Play was Call of Duty: Mobile, which racked up some 180 million downloads in the quarter, more than 80 million on the App Store and more than 90 million on Google Play, the best quarter for a game since the launch of Pokémon GO.

Disney+ accounted for 34% of the streaming market on Apple and Google devices, even exceeding the total downloads for the whole of the year of Hulu and Amazon Prime Video. In fact, the revenue outpaced HBO Now's biggest month, which came in the summer of 2017 when the seventh season of Game of Thrones arrived, the report said. Netflix mobile revenues consistently decreased through the year, though the report notes that the company has made a concerted effort to push new subscribers to subscribing online rather than through the app.
