Impact on usage estimates
Since our DAU, MAU and ARPDAU estimates are strongly dependent on the downloads predictions, we expect this update to have a positive impact on our DAU, MAU and ARPDAU estimates too.
Overall, better models means better accuracy. It's important to note that the changes in our estimates might affect some apps, publishers, and categories more dramatically than others.
