Google today has announced a pair of expansions for its Play Movies and TV app. First off, the app itself has been updated with support for 40 new languages. The update has also added the ability to download movies in either HD or SD, where as downloading was previously only supported in high-definition. The full change log the app update is below:

  • Support for over 40 new countries
  • Get your content offline faster – now HD movies and shows may be downloaded in HD or SD.
  • Improved video streaming performance for select KitKat devices.
  • Additional app improvements and bugfixes.
 Most notably, however, Google has also announced that its Movies service has expanded to 37 new counties. Those counties include:

Benin, Bolivia, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cape Verde, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Finland, Gabon, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Ivory Coast, Luxembourg, Mali, Mauritius, Namibia, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Niger, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Rwanda, Senegal, Sweden, Togo, Uruguay, Venezuela and Zambia.

That is certainly a significant expansion and brings the service to millions of new people. Sadly, TV show availability remains sparse, being available only in Australia, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Finally, Google has also expanded its Play Music and Music All Access services to Greece, Norway, Sweden, And Slovakia.
