Access assured: Monaco is now fully Google compatible
Many people have been waiting for news on this subject and now we can officially announce that Monegasque Internet users have access to all of Google’s online services in the Google Play store.
This announcement is part of the ongoing development of relations between the Principality and digital leaders within the framework of the “Monaco Extended” programme and with the support of the Sovereign Prince on the occasion of his visit to Google Headquarters in California last year. H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince, accompanied by a Monegasque delegation, visited the Mountain View site to meet Google executives, discuss possible areas of collaboration with the Principality and the ways in which digital companies can make a major contribution to the environmental challenges facing the planet today.
What does the new agreement mean for the residents of Monaco?
The Principality has many options for users of Android operating systems. These include the use of the Stadia platform, geolocation sharing on Google maps, and increased storage capabilities on Gmail and Google Drive.
The Principality is pleased to finally offer Monaco a full range of Google services.
“Monaco is now treated in the same way as the major countries and markets prioritised by Google. This is a positive step forward for Monegasque residents”, declared Frédéric Genta, Country Chief Digital Officer.
Since 2012, Google Play has been a multimedia platform providing games, films, apps, television shows and books. It’s used by over 2 billion people around the world.
