Google Play has been around for a while as has Android itself. In fact, it’s been over 10 years now. Thus, there are actually quite a few apps that achieved true popular over the years. Many call it the three comma club, the over one billion downloads mark is one of the rarest achievements an app can have. There are over a dozen Google apps with this distinction, including popular apps like Gmail and YouTube. However, these lists always have a ton of Google apps and pre-installed apps. It’s fairly common knowledge that Google apps are the most common apps on Android anyway, so let’s not include them and look at the rest of the field instead. Here are the 15 most common apps for Android! The download numbers are estimates, by the way, and not 100% factually accurate numbers. If you want to see our sources, we have them linked at the end of the article.
