If you’re an Android user who lives in Australia, New Zealand, and several other companies new content is now available to you. Google announced this week that an update to the Google Play store brings with it the availability of music in several countries that didn’t have it before. Music is been available in the US and several other countries for a long time.
Other than Australia and New Zealand, the countries now have access to music via Google Play include Austria, Ireland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Portugal. The music is available on any Android device running version 2.2 or higher. The tunes can also be listened to online in those countries as well.
The Google Play update also brought a number of other new features. The most notable new feature is an extremely different user interface that is much cleaner. The interface has a card-style layout and it looks really good.
One notable change in the new update is that rather than having the checkbox to automatically update apps on the screen for each app to download, that tick box is now on your device settings page. You can check out our hands-on video of all the changes in the Google Play store below.
