TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Google has added more countries, including Iran to the Google Play Developer Console, a report said.

Google Play Store May Soon Be Available in Iran: Report

The countries of Iran, China, Cuba, Macau, Myanmar, and Sudan, which could not previously access the Google Play Store, or could not access paid services, will soon be able to use the Google Play Store, XDA-Developers reported on Saturday. 

The list of countries which can access the Google Play Store has also been updated in their support section.

Overall, this expansion by Google would be a good thing. In these countries, there obviously is a desire for APKs and unofficial application market stores, which can be incredibly unsafe and offer apps injected with adware or malware. With the launch of the Google Play Store in these locations, users should be safer with an official market to download applications from.
