Google Play Top Charts in July 2019: Best Apps
Once again, we have overhauled the Top Charts for the best Google Play apps for July. The top three apps have maintained their positions this month, but we have “FaceApp” debuting at number six and challenging the positions of other apps. Well, this is not a diamond-in-the-rough sort of list, and we are certain that you are familiar with most of them. These apps are rated based on the number of downloads and searches from the Google App store. Without further ado, here they are:
Mobiuspace Tech Top Player
|6||FaceApp - AI Face Editor|
SHAREit Technologies Co.Ltd
|14||Google Play services|
|16||Share Music & Transfer Files – Xender|
Xender (HK) Limited
|17||Personal stickers for WhatsApp|
|18||Swiggy Food Order & Delivery|
|19||Play Lite for YouTube|
The three apps at the top of the pantheon have kept their position for the second consecutive month. Youtube has been a fixture on this list for the fifth month in a row. With billions of hours of content to watch, Youtube has now become a lifestyle helping its users with answers to almost anything. WhatsApp Messenger and Facebook Lite are in a close race for the top spot. Both are owned by Facebook, so the competition is not very fierce. These are growing bigger everyday, and it seems unlikely that other apps can take their spots. Google Chrome lost its place to Lark Player which made its first appearance on last month’s charts at the ninth position and played out Chrome for the fourth spot this month.
We have a newcomer “FaceApp” that took the world by storm at the sixth position. It was downloaded by millions of people fascinated by their future selves. This app has a variety of features like changing hairstyle or whitening your smile, but the old-age filter drew the most attention. This says a lot about our obsession with appearance and ageing. It uses artificial intelligence to apply convincing age filters to our photos. But a developer’s tweet that FaceApp could be our privacy nightmare totally took over the social feeds. Later, security experts found that the app only took submitted photos to company servers, mostly based in the US, not Russia. The company also clarified that the uploaded photos were stored in the cloud due to performance and traffic reasons, and no user data has been sold to third parties.
Messenger Lite, Messenger, and Google Photos’ position were rearranged, and Facebook was booted off from the top ten list. SHAREit displayed a volatile rank change and climbed up the charts to take Facebook’s spot at number ten. It has become increasingly popular as a faster file sharing app as compared to the traditional Bluetooth, covering all major platforms.
It seems like an earthquake shook up the charts: many apps lost their previous spots with orders of magnitude higher than the norm. While Blocksite was able to keep its eleventh place, other apps massively lost the points. SuperVPN lost eight places and dropped to the fifteenth position. Google Play Services and Xender could not spend more time on their positions and got beaten up by Telegram which secured thirteenth place.
While Swiggy victoriously jumped two positions and WhatsApp Stickers still managed to hold the seventeenth position, we bid farewell to YouTube Go, Video Player and Hotstar. We are glad to have Instagram back after it was out from June’s chart with Play Lite for YouTube. We will keep our fingers crossed whether they will remain on the list or just simply vanish into thin air.
