Afraid that Twitter will give problems or cease to exist soon after Elon Musk’s moves in the company, many users, including Brazilians, rushed to an alternative that was little known until then — the Indian social network Koo. This, combined with the start of the World Cup games, triggered a race that left both the platform and the Fifa Plus app among the most downloaded free apps in Brazil on both Android and iOS systems, according to a report by the data.ai portal.
Faced with this scenario of uncertainty in the blue bird network, many people opened an account on Koo, which bears the icon of a chick, and the curious name led to the proliferation of memes on the internet. Several personalities from Brazil have already created a profile on the Indian social network, including actors, comedians and singers.
After the success, the network even developed a Portuguese version of the app.
At the same time, Fifa Plus has taken a leap, as it is the official streaming of the World Cup organizers, which broadcasts live and for free the matches of the tournament being disputed in Qatar. If Koo leads in both app stores, Fifa Plus, however, did not reach the top of the ranking on Android, which has apps like McDonald’s and the Shein store on the list. The Globoplay streaming, which also broadcasts the matches, also occupies a good position on iOS.
On Android, games like Football League 2023 and FIFA Mobile: FIFA World Cup climbed the list and are in the spotlight thanks to their era.
