As you're probably aware, there's a trade embargo that prevents U.S. exports to Cuba. That's not stopping Google from launching some of its free services there.

Google launched Chrome in Cuba in August, and just announced that it's now offering Google Play and Google Analytics there. It will, however, only be offering free stuff: the free version of Analytics and free apps/games on Google Play.
