Active installs number is one of the most important metrics for every plugin.
Unfortunately, WordPress is keeping actual numbers under the hood and provides only rounded numbers (like 400k+ active installs).
But with one of the recent updates to public WP API active install growth metric was introduced. In combination with historical data we already collected with wpdevmetrics, it opens an opportunity to calculate the actual number of active installs!
This feature is available for all users with active subscriptions. Give it a try and let us know your feedback!
You can find more details about the approach in the following blog post: How to Get the Actual Number of Active Installs of Your WordPress Plugin.
