In November 2021, Mark Zuckerberg the CEO of Facebook announced that they are creating a digital world and the Meta management calls the digital world “Metaverse”, which is an online world where users can create their own avatars and do all the stuff inside the virtual spaces like they do in the real world.
Soon after the announcement was made from the Meta management the whole internet has gone crazy about the Metaverse and that is why many applications have opted for this specific word in their descriptions. The number of apps using this term has increased ten folds since Facebook announced its idea about this concept. According to the Sensor Tower report a number of specific words are being used massively in app descriptions in 2021 and 2022 and Metaverse is one of them.
Along with the Metaverse, other terminologies are highly being used. The crypto is on the second keyword that app developers’ are using. Currently 114 apps are considering crypto in their description box. NFTs (non-fungible tokens) is in third place. AR (augmented reality) and “VR” (virtual reality) are in 4th and 5th place respectively.
From November 2021 to January 2022, in total “552” apps are acknowledging the term Metaverse in their description box. This is a lot because last year by the end of November only 29 apps were including this term in their description box.
The Mobile game developers have also shown keen interest in the Metaverse. Till today one hundred and seven (107) mobile games developers are using this particular keyword to get some attention.
