According to app analytics firm Sensor Tower, Pokemon Go Estimated downloads has reached 50 million on Google Play. Overall the company mention 75 million Pokemon Go estimated downloads across iOS and Android based on their data.
The time it took Pokemon Go to reach 50 million downloads on Android is also a record across mobile games. To put the news into context, Sensor Tower did a comparison with other apps who reached 50 million downloads in record time.
Color Switch and Slither.io took 77 and 81 days respectively to pass the 50 million mark. However, Pokemon Go reached its 50 million downloads mark in just 19 days.
According to Sensor Tower, Pokemon Go still have a lot of potential left in it. As the game is only available in 32 countries across the world, out of the 100 possible countries where these stores distribute their content. According to the firm, Pokemon Go will reach 100 million downloads within first two months is totally achievable.
For the sake of comparison, Tinder reached 100 million downloads in January 2016. While the app originally launched in 2012. In all fairness games tend to achieve these milestones more quickly but it is getting a little harder to distinguish Pokemon Go as a game from Pokemon Go as social experience.
