Among top trending apps, 'Photo Editor - Beauty Camera & Photo Filters' and 'Messenger Lite' were trending on top, said the search giant.

Domestic 'Baahubali: The Game' was so popular that it had surpassed international games like 'WWE Champions', 'Super Mario Run' and 'Pokémon Duel' on Google Play.

Every year, Google publishes the list of most popular apps, games, music, movies and books on its digital distribution service Google Play. It also includes top five apps, games, movies, books, TV shows and music, globally.

"Indian authors swept the top five list of books with memoirs from Karan Johar, Rishi Kapoor, and Raghuram G. Rajan dominating the majority of the slots," the company said in a blog post. Drum-laden 'Saahore Baahubali' by M.M. Keeravaani was the most streamed song on Google Play followed by 'Ik Vaari Aa' from Arijit Singh.

Google Play is entirely cloud-based providing music, movies, books and apps and accessible online always.

Hollywood film "Moana" 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.

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. "Photo Editor - Beauty Camera & Photo Filters" was the most downloaded new app with fans touching up their favorite photos for social media, said Google in a post.
