H.S.H. the Sovereign Prince, accompanied by a Monegasque delegation, visited the Mountain View site yesterday 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.
During this visit, Google announced that the company would offer the Principality full access to the Google Play catalogue and services in the near future.
Frédéric Genta, Country Chief Digital Officer, welcomed this step forward, stating, "We are looking forward to offering Monegasques, residents and businesses the best digital solutions in the world. Access to Google Play's full catalogue and options has been a longstanding request from both individuals and businesses. I am delighted that, today, we are able to respond positively to this request."
Since 2012, Google Play has been a multimedia platform offering games, films, applications, TV programmes and books. More than 2 billion people use it worldwide.
