Google is excellent at catering for the US market and a few other Western countries, but it’s international efforts have been mediocre at best. That’s slowly changing though, as the company it’s expanding its media offerings to new countries.

As of today, Google’s Play Books and Play Movies services are available in dozens of new countries from around the world.

The Play Books extension is not a surprise – Google accidentally announced the rollout to 12 new countries last week, but the service only went live today. The new Play Books countries are:

  • Paraguay
  • Bolivia
  • Uruguay
  • Colombia
  • Honduras
  • Panama
  • Dominican Republic
  • El Salvador
  • Ecuador
  • Nicaragua
  • Costa Rica

Note that Luxembourg was mentioned in the list from last week, but it looks like it didn’t make the cut for this rollout.

Moving on to Play Movies,  the rollout is even more substantial. The following new countries will get to enjoy Google’s movies service:

  • Albania
  • Argentina
  • Armenia
  • Azerbaijan
  • Belarus
  • Croatia
  • Czech Republic
  • Estonia
  • Greece
  • Kazakhstan
  • Kyrgyzstan
  • Lao People’s Democratic Republic
  • Latvia
  • Lithuania
  • Moldova
  • Poland
  • Slovakia
  • Tajikistan
  • Thailand
  • Turkmenistan
