Sudan becomes the 142nd country in the world to finally get access to Android applications available on the Google Play Store.

The development was announced by Google on Google+:

As part of a commitment to helping more people around the globe use technology to communicate, find and create information, we’re announcing the availability of free apps and games on +Google Play in Sudan for the first time!

As stated, users can only access free applications and games and nothing more. Looks like they’ll need to wait before they can be able to purchase apps and games directly.

With the exception of South Africa, most countries in Sub-Saharan Africa lack access to most of the Play Store’s services like books (Google Play Books) while the likes of Senegal and Zambia already have access to Google Play Movies and TV.
