Instagram Now Has 1 Billion Download In The Play Store

Instagram is definitely here to stay. Coming from a rough journey which begins with a brief spell with the IPhone platform, setting a global admiration for the Apple manufactured product before migrating to Android for series of innovative records to date. 

Instagram, the visual messaging app was launched years back in 2010 on the Android platform. However, the year 2012 witnessed Mark Zuckerberg’s company – Facebook acquiring Instagram for a whopping $1 Billion. Well, that value has confidently nurtured up to a worthy investment considering the milestone Instagram currently standing on with a 1 Billion downloads in the play Store. Instagram is more like Facebook’s baby of the house of the house as it equals the 1 Billion download feat achieved by Facebook, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger. 

With this development, it simply positions Instagram as the 19th app in Google’s Play Store to hit 1 Billion downloads, finally settles in the class of other Facebook apps and Google’s apps. Meanwhile, Gmail was the first to hit the 1 Billion mark, next was Google Maps, and followed by YouTube and Facebook respectively. More so, these two giants US-tech (Google and Facebook) are the only two developers or publishers currently to record apps with the 1 Billion download mark. But considering their heavy customer, and fan base – it shouldn’t be that surprising. 

I’m patiently waiting to see the next app to stamp its presence on the 1 Billion download thereby occupying the position number 20. Perhaps, it could be someone from my family of Bloggers Worldwide? Who knows?
