Apple has announced that it will roll out its Apple Store, Podcasts, Music and iCloud services across more markets in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.

Apple Music launched to an additional 52 countries, while its Store, Arcade, Podcasts and iCloud were made available to 20 more nations.

The move is likely aligned with a growing number of users staying at home during the COVID-19 pandemic and are looking for apps and entertainment options to pass the time.

“We’re delighted to bring many of Apple’s most beloved Services to users in more countries than ever before,” Apple’s VP of Music and International Content, Oliver Schusser, said in a statement.

“We hope our customers can discover their new favorite apps, games, music, and podcasts as we continue to celebrate the world’s best creators, artists, and developers.”

The App Store is available in 175 countries now and Apple Music is already reaching 167 markets.
