The video-on-demand platform by Balaji Telefilms ranked fourth among most popular apps of 2017, Paytm Mall: Online Shopping was fifth, Baahubali was most popular game of year

Google has announced the Google Play’s Best of 2017, which includes India’s most popular apps, games, music, movies and books in 2017. 

ALTBalaji, the video-on-demand platform by Balaji Telefilms, has emerged as the fourth most popular app on Google Play’s India’s most popular apps of 2017. Paytm Mall: Online Shopping was ranked fifth.

Photo Editor - Beauty Camera & Photo Filters was placed first, while Messenger Lite: Free Calls & Messages and Selfie Camera - Beauty Camera & Photo Editor were ranked second and third, respectively.

‘Dear Zindagi’ is the most popular movie of the year on Google Play in India. Strong female characters dominated this year’s movies chart with Moana and Wonder Woman rounding out the top three. 

The locally-developed ‘Baahubali: The Game’ took the title of the most popular game of the year, even trumping international tiles like WWE Champions, Super Mario Run, and Pokémon Duel. 

Indian authors swept the top five list of books with memoirs from Karan Johar, Rishi Kapoor and Raghuram G. Rajan dominating the majority of the slots. And with music being added this year, the drum-laden ‘Saahore Baahubali’ by M M Keeravaani was the most streamed song followed by the hummable ‘Ik Vaari Aa’ from Arijit Singh.

The list also includes top five apps, games, movies, books, TV shows and music, globally. At the global front, Game of Thrones kept Rick and Morty and The Walking Dead at bay to claim the Iron Throne for the second year in a row as the most popular TV show. 

Elsewhere, Kendrick Lamar may no longer be so Humble after beating out Ed Sheeran’s Shape of You, as Google Play’s most streamed song of 2017. His DNA also holds the number three spot on this list.
