On Monday, February 4, Prince Albert visited Google’s hometown of Mountain View to meet with company executives, including chief legal officer Kent Walker, and discuss possible areas of collaboration with the Principality. Along with his delegation, the Prince looked at how digital businesses can contribute to the environmental challenges facing the planet today.

Google took the opportunity to announce that they will be offering Monaco full access to its catalogue and Google Play services in the near future.

Monaco’s chief digital officer Frédéric Genta welcomed the development. “We look forward to offering Monegasques, residents and businesses the best digital solutions in the world. Access to the full catalog and Google Play options has long been a demand of individuals and businesses. I’m delighted that today we can provide a positive response to this request. ”

Over 2 billion people around the world use Google Play, which, since 2012, has been a multimedia platform for the provision of games, films, applications, TV shows and books.
