Barely a week into its debut, Pokémon Go has clocked 21 million daily active users, edging past Candy Crush Saga's 20 million users recorded in 2013. The data comes from online survey company SurveyMonkey, which pegs Pokémon Go as the biggest mobile game in U.S. history. The game already surpassed Tinder and Twitter when it comes to daily active users, and it isn't even available globally yet, with Niantic pausing its international rollout to deal with the massive influx of players.
Within three days of its release, Pokémon GO attracted more users than Twitter, and rose to the top of the App Store revenue charts, earning millions of dollars a day for its publisher, Niantic.
As of yesterday, Pokémon GO attracted just under 21 million daily active users in the United States, surpassing Candy Crush saga's rumored peak US smartphone audience of 20 million and making it the biggest mobile game in US history.
