YouTube Spending: App Store vs Google Play

While overall user spending puts YouTube on top, the scenario changes drastically when the gross revenue of YouTube is segregated by app stores.

Unlike Google Play users, YouTube users on Apple devices are more fascinated towards the premium services. This is clearly visible from the list of top apps by gross revenue on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

While Apple device users spent maximum on YouTube app in the category, Android users have different preferences altogether. In July 2019, YouTube emerged as the top-grossing app on the Apple App Store. On the other hand, Android users prefer to spend most on Twitch and FaceApp.

Surprisingly, there is a clear difference in the preferences of Apple and Android users when it comes to spending on Photo and Video apps. Neither Youtube, the leading app on Apple App Store, finds a position in the list of top 10 apps by gross revenue on Google Play, nor Twitch, the top-grossing app on Google Play, is among the top-grossing apps on Apple App Store.

Users spending on YouTube is growing at an unprecedented rate. However, it comes with a few fine prints that are inevitable for publishers looking to secure a sizeable share of this revenue. Targeting Apple device users must be the top priority for publishers offering premiums services or in-app purchase.

Overall, in the last few quarters, be it Apple App Store or Google Play, users spending on video apps have increased phenomenally. And, It’s none other than YouTube which is leading the pack.
