Culled From Similar Web

What’s your go-to messaging app? Is it Messenger,
WhatsApp, or some other app such as Viber, Line, or
Using Android data from 187 countries, we were able to
determine the most popular messaging app all over the
world. In fact, in almost every country in the world, a
messaging app is the most used app overall.
Of the 187 countries that SimilarWeb examined,
WhatsApp was the world leader claiming 109 countries,
or 55.6% of the world. WhatsApp’s countries include
Brazil, Mexico, India, Russia, and many other countries in
South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania.

Facebook’s Messenger app came in second overall,
claiming 49 countries including Australia, Canada, and
the U.S. After Messenger, Viber was the only other
messaging app to claim 10 or more countries. The app
shows strong popularity in Eastern Europe, and is the top
app in Belarus, Moldova, Ukraine, and others. In fact, as
of April 2016, Viber was installed on 65% of all Android
devices in Ukraine and was used for an average of 16
minutes a day. Viber’s popularity also reaches other
parts of the world including countries such as Iraq, Libya,
and Sri Lanka.

Line , WeChat , and Telegram are 3 other messaging apps
claiming multiple countries with China, Iran, and Japan
representing countries using one of these apps. Japan’s
obsession with Line is well documented and in a recent
post , we discovered that not only is Line the most
popular app in Japan, people who have it use it for an
average of 40 minutes a day!
Finally, apps that only claimed one country include
KakaoTalk in South Korea, imo in Cuba, Zalo in Vietnam,
