Hi @Bishu P,

 

It is widely accepted and reported that a solid percentage of users do install an app and either wait to use it at a later date or never actually use it at all. Apps are a unique in this behavior. I would give it more time and then crunch the metrics again. 

 

Be sure to put all of this information to use, too. 

 

Kind Regards,

 

James

Hi @Bishu P,

 

For reasons associated with the above post authored by @James_Clemens, you are pretty much advised to seriously consider running a so-called app engagement campaign from time to time. It will help you getting people who have installed your app to try it again. As a precondition, you will need to link Google Play and AdWords. Please find below 2 relevant help pages:
