Chrome Web Store going global

When Google initially released the Chrome Web Store, it was met with great success. One of the only groans surrounding the launch was its limited availability; up until now, the Web Store was only available to users in the United States.

Thankfully, Google is looking to change that by opening a developer preview in fifteen different countries. The new countries with access to the preview — which includes a localized payment system — are as follows:

Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom.

If this preview ends in the same way the one for the US has, it’ll be roughly four months until the Web Store is open for business internationally.
