As the year draws to a close, Google today announced Google Play’s most globally popular apps, games, music, movies, TV shows and books in 2017. And specifically in India, we bring you the list of top apps, games, movies, books and music.

No one knows how far she can go better than “Moana,” as she landed the most popular movie of the year on Google Play. Strong female characters dominated this year’s movies chart with “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” and “Wonder Woman” rounding out the top three. “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. Kendrick’s “DNA” also holds the number three spot on this list. Nintendo’s “Super Mario Run” was the most downloaded new game of the year, but not all bubbles were burst, as “Bubble Witch 3 Saga” was closely behind at number two. “Messenger Lite” was the most downloaded new app with fans who love staying in touch social media.

On the home front, ‘Socratic – Math Answers & Homework Help’ and ‘Messenger Lite’ were top trending apps, proving India’s continued love for selfies, pouts and education. But epic gameplay ruled the roost in the genre, with the locally-developed ‘Baahubali: The Game’ taking 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 5 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 immensely hummable ‘Ik Vaari Aa’ from Arijit Singh.
