People living in the US, UK, Canada, and Japan have been able to enjoy renting and purchasing movies from the Google Play library for some time now, and today, anyone living in France can use the service to get their movie fix as well.
If you have a French Google Play account, you will now have a link to purchase movies both online at play.google.com and through your Android phone. To celebrate the French launch, French classics such as 'La Grotte Des Rêves Perdu' and 'Le Bal Des Actrices' have been added to the store for everyone to enjoy.
Upon the launch of Play, Google said that it wants to bring different content categories to as many countries as possible, but didn't specify a timeline for this to be achieved. France is now the 5th country that can enjoy movies through Google Play, so the steady rollout of movies seems to be continuing at a good pace. Hopefully, we'll soon be able to say the same about Google Music, which continues to be US-only at the moment.
You can check out a commercial for French movies on Google Play, which consists of a French man talking over screenshots of the US Play store, below.
