Google posted a brief announcement on Google+ that Google Play would launch in Sudan today, beginning with free apps and games. Sudan was one of the relatively few remaining countries on earth without Play Store access, joining the likes of Cuba late last year and Iran back in 2013.

Of the countries on the Play Store, Sudan now sits alongside Myanmar, Cuba, and Iran as one of just four with access only to free apps. A larger group of nations remain without either (countries such as Georgia, Syria, Congo, DRC, Malawi, Mongolia, China, and Afghanistan - just to name a few).
