Google Music spreads globally, comes to new countries


Android fans in the United States don’t know how good they have it; whenever a new feature rolls out, or a new device launches, they’re often first to get a crack at it, and while some features eventually spread to other nations, others like Google Wallet remain US-only. This week we’ve got some good news for you international Android users, with word that Google’s greatly expanding availability of both Play Music and its streaming All Access option to users in additional European countries.

In addition to all the nations which could previously access Play Music, now we see that list grow with the addition of the Czech Republic, Finland, Hungary, Liechtenstein, the Netherlands, Russia, and Switzerland.

When added to the existing countries of Australia, Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States, we’re really starting to get somewhere, though there are still plenty of big missing countries, and a general lack of availability outside Europe, the US, and AU/NZ.

Still, this is progress, and hopefully we’ll only see this trend continue.
