Google allows some Android users to shop in a different country's Google Play Store

If you've changed the region of your Google Play Store in order to download a game or app unavailable in your home country, you'll appreciate Google's latest addition to the Play Store. The new Country and profiles feature quickly allows visitors to what used to be called the Android Market, to check out what apps are available in different countries. First, keep in mind that Google is offering this feature only to Android users who meet a certain criteria.

Those given the opportunity to use the new Country and profiles feature are those who have previously made a valid purchase using a valid payment method from a version of the Google Play Store belonging to a different country than the one the user lives in.

So, in summary, this is really just unlocking the ability to switch between two countries where you have made valid purchases. It won't suddenly let you choose a new country and make a first purchase there. Up to this point, we had to maintain two different login IDs to achieve the switch (like Apple also requires). So this does make it much easier for many people.
