Business is happening all over the world, and Google's finance tools are now ready to help you track a little bit more of it. The company has announced Google Finance has added support for indices, stock price movements, trading volumes and more in some additional countries.

The new arrivals are Spain, Poland, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, and Argentina. This brings Google Finance's total supported exchanges count to 35. You can get access to all the data Google has on various exchanges through search results, the Finance website, and with Google's stupendously ugly Finance app. Seriously, that UI is straight Gingerbread. Because the new exchanges are tied into search, you can add them to Google Now cards as well.

    I use the gingerbread app daily and it kills me a little every day

  • Luqmaan Mathee

    What a lovely gingerbread UI!

    Peak Stocks (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.KWD.PeakFinance)

    Most decent Google Finance front-end I've found on Android.

      Thank you! I've been on a search fora decent stock app that doesn't look like trash. Started using SeekingAlpha a few days ago, but no Google Finance integration.

    • ddpacino

      Is this a beta or something? Page won't come up.

        Silly Disqus included the parenthesis at the end in the hyperlink. It's fixed now.

        Used to use that. Peak is better

  • Matthew Gardner

    I used the Finance app while at uni on my first smartphone (original Desire) because I figured the Google app would be the way to go on Android. Never again.

  • Laurence

    This is awesome news!

    Who cares about the crappy Android app. The most important thing here is that I can finally put my stocks on Google Now!

    • ddpacino

      That's been possible since its introduction. Only thing new in this regard is adding the additional exchanges.

      I need that app for more in-depth info than Google Now and present me, though. I want to see related news, for one thing.

  • Carlos

    at last!! it took them ages to bring it to spain stocks...

  • AGoogleFinanceUser

    i was so excited when i saw the google finance icon i thought it meant they had finally updated the android app from gingerbread...sadly mistaken :'( Here's hoping to I/O...

  • Mike Evans

    This is the best looking one I've seen so far: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.goldfishlabs.stocks

    I use the Google Finance widgets on my homescreen for a couple stocks, but the tiny graphs are pretty pathetic. I often find myself using Google Now's graphs instead.

    Wish this app would get a proper update. Would also love to be able to put a quote or two in the notification bar.

  • Debadatta Bose

    That godawful UI must go. Period.

  • dandei

    I cannot think of a nice finance app on the play store.
    Google Finance competes with Yahoo Finance on which one to be uglier.

    • George S.

      They're both effin' disgusting, and that's what you get when the developer is a mega company creating apps for what they believe to be a captive audience.

  • gmaninvan

    Finally, a glimmer of hope that Finance won't be out in the next spring cleaning. Maybe this means that the finance app might actually get a well needed makeover at I/O

  • George S.

    I use the investing.com app and it has all of the above. Which is interesting, cos google should be ahead of the game by numerous steps.

    Pro-tip, it has less crashes than good ol' goog too!
    (such a shame)
