Google Play brings Books and Movies to Russia, keeps reaching more audiences


A little over a month after announcing the imminent arrival of more Google Play content to a few areas around the globe, the Mountain View-based company has let it be known that a couple of its media services are now also available in Russia. While today's announcement only includes the ability to rent / buy movies and books (purchases only) from the Play store, something tells us Russian users invested in Google's extensive ecosystem will still be happy to hear they, too, can get a piece of the pie. Additionally, and not surprisingly, the search giant is quick to point out that there's a ton of Russian-language video and reading content, including films such as Shadow Boxing and bestseller books from authors like Tatyana Tolstaya.
