Pokémon GO Hits 100 Million Installs on Android
Pokémon GO has now been installed more than 100 million times among Android users worldwide after launching just one month ago in the U.S.
Niantic Labs’ completely free augmented reality Pokémon-hunting game continues to shine as the weeks pass by. As of 9:30 p.m. EST on Sunday, August 7, the game has racked up somewhere between 100-500 million total installs, according to the Google Play store.
Despite this achievement, Niantic recently stated that players have only experienced roughly 10 percent of what the game has to offer. New features such as Pokémon trading, customizable Gyms, Pokémon Centers, and the introduction of Legendary Pokémon are still planned.
The next major milestone Pokémon GO must tackle on the Google Play store is the 500+ million marker. It’s a tall order, so there’s no telling how long it will take for the game to conquer that achievement. We’ll be sure to let you know, however.
Pokémon GO debuted in the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand on July 6. Less than one week later, the game had already amassed 10 million installs across Android devices.
