Every school is different. But if there’s one thing the majority of schools have in common this year it’s that ‘unprecedented’ reliance on digital classrooms and Edtech tools for remote teaching.

With that, we thought our Google Workspace Admins and Edu customers might be interested in knowing which are the most installed apps by schools these months.

In this post, we pulled a list of the most installed apps by schools from our records based on the number of domains they’ve been found on.

Knowing this may help…

GAT Labs is the global leader in Google Workspace and Chromebook audit and security, with thousands of schools worldwide and more than 15 million audited users. Therefore, the below list serves as an excellent reference for school admins, teachers and IT professionals worldwide.

Let’s dive in now, shall we?
