Zoom adoption remains strong despite lockdown lifting

Although many countries have lifted lockdowns and businesses returned to offices, video conferencing app Zoom remained one of the top 10 most downloaded apps in the second quarter of 2021, according to Sensor Tower

The coronavirus pandemic has changed the way we live and forced billions of people from around the world to work and study from home. As a result, downloads of video conferencing apps skyrocketed as workers and students started exploring virtual ways of communication to keep in touch with each other during lockdowns. 

One of these apps is Zoom which became the most downloaded app worldwide across both Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store during the second quarter of 2020 when countries started to take strict precautions.
