iTunes Match Expands to 19 More Countries

January 17, 2012

iTunes Match Beta

Apple on Monday expanded access to its iTunes Match service to 19 additional countries in Latin America and Europe.

Apple's iTunes Match allows users to store all their music in Apple's iCloud. The countries added Monday include Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Estonia, Guatemala, Honduras, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, and Venezuela.

Apple provided a list of countries with access to iTunes Match in a chart posted to its support forum. At this point, users in 37 countries can use iTunes Match.

By last month, the service had been made available in 17 countries, including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Republic of Malta, Mexico, New Zealand, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Availability for iTunes Match still has yet to expand to Asian and African nations.

Apple had originally announced that iTunes Match would be functional by the end of October 2011, but missed the deadline by just under a half a month. The service went live in the U.S. on Nov. 14 along with the iTunes 10.5.1 update.

ITunes Match allows users to store their entire music library in the cloud for on-the-go access to music from any iOS device or computer—for $24.99 per year. Once music is in iCloud it can be streamed to any device. With iTunes Match, users can store up to 25,000 songs in the cloud, including songs bought it from the iTunes Store, imported from a disc, or acquired it from another online source.
