Google has announced that it has enabled the Street View feature for Serbia via the Google Maps Twitter account. If you live in or plan to visit Serbia, now you can get a pedestrian view of all the places you want to go... assuming that all those places are in the capital city of Belgrade, and a few other cities and towns along the E-75 highway from Novi Sad to Niš. Everywhere else will have to wait. The feature is live on the web and Android.

Serbia is one of the few countries in Europe left without near-total Street View coverage, which is probably why Google chose to highlight the addition. Its smaller neighbors Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, and Macedonia are the only countries in that part of Eastern Europe that haven't been covered. But considering the technical work that goes into adding Street View data to Maps, Google can do so quite rapidly - maybe we'll see more areas of Serbia close up in the near future.

      The funny thing is that a long time ago (around the Android 2.2 release), I remember paid apps being listed with prices in RSD. I don't know whether we could purchase apps, because I didn't own an Android device at the time.

        Yeah we could. We were still charged in USD (the conversion was just for convenience), but at least we were able to purchase them through Play store.

        I think Amazon App Store allows apps to be purchased from Serbia.

    Nice. Ability to buy play store apps like the rest of the world would be even better.

    Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail
