In 2011, only 9% of the total population of Nepal used to have an internet connection, but now these statistics have been increased rapidly over the years. In the last few years, millions of internet users are added per year. According to the report of datareportal.com, more than 10.21 million population in Nepal have started using the internet.
As per their reports, the number of internet users has been increased by 315,000 in between the small of 2019-2020. By 2020, the percentage of people that are using the internet has crossed 63%, and this is marvelous for a technically backward country like Nepal. And this number has been still increasing although the Internet is quite expensive in Nepal in comparison to the other countries.
Now you have an idea about the number of people who use the internet in Nepal. Since the number is quite much more than half of the population, people must have kept several online and offline mobile applications on their mobile devices.
That’s why we are covering the names of the 20 most popular Android Applications in Nepal according to the year 2020.
List Of Popular Android Apps In Nepal In 2021
It’s the list that is made on the popularity of apps in a country by Google Playstore itself, and the position keeps altering time-to-time, so there is a chance that some apps won’t be on the list of PlayStore if you are reading this after a few days or months after the publication of this article.
But all in all, basically these are the apps that are among the 20 most popular android applications in Nepal. It means these are the apps that most of the internet users in Nepal use on their android phones.
It seems like after getting banned in our neighboring country India, TikTok gets more recognition in Nepal.
But this is not a real fact. The real fact is, TikTok has been one of the popular Android apps in Nepal since it was launched on the play store. Even facing so many backlashes on the internet in recent times, it is still the most popular app in Nepal according to 2020.

Zoom Cloud Meeting
The one thing that has been so popular due to this lockdown is Zoom, the cloud meeting android applications that have become a hub of meeting among the Nepalese in this pandemic either the meeting is about online classes or any conferences.
Zoom must be the most downloaded application from the Google PlayStore in this pandemic, that’s why it has become the second most popular apps in Nepal in no time.
The reason for Facebook Lite being among the top 5 most popular apps in 2020/2021 must be the COVID-19 situation. During the lockdown, most people either have either spent their time watching movies, series, or using social media especially Facebook.
And since everyone hasn’t wifi connection, most have to download Facebook Lite because of the data packages limitation. We know the lite version of any application consumes less data than the beta or normal version.
Pi Network is also like a zoom app that became so popular in no time. And the Pi Network has gained this popularity in the last few months. But that many hadn’t even heard the name of this app.
If you know about this app, then you must know why this app has become so popular in just a few months. You will know why and how it has become so popular. In a few more months, I think it will be the most popular app in Nepal.
Viber Messenger has been also one of the most popular apps in Nepal for a long time. But this year, it has beaten the popular apps like Facebook and Whatsapp too.
It may be because of the Nepali features that Viber supports in their system, either it is Nepali stickers or Nepali language.

We all know Whatsapp is the most popular OTT apps for voice and video calls along with instant message services in the world. And you will find this app being popular in most of the country.
Many news portals and other governmental and non-governmental organizations use Whatsapp more than other platforms like Skype.
In 2020, Facebook Messenger is even more popular than Facebook itself.
During this lockdown, Facebook Messenger improved its existing features and also add a few new features to attract the users more toward Messenger.
The highlighted feature of Facebook Messenger in recent times is the Create A Room service where you can do a video call or conference in a group of up to 50 people at one time.
Bigo Live is an application that allows you to live-stream your favorite moments, and make friends from all around the world.
It has crossed more than 200 Million users across the world and most of the users are gained in this pandemic situation.
