eBay has internationalizing its popular eBay application for Android, which is now available for free download in the Android Market in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. The new, updated international Android application will feature a number of key upgrades to “My eBay,” immediate checkout through PayPal, and voice search capabilities unique to the Android platform.

“The popularity of eBay’s mobile shopping applications is quickly spreading across multiple geographies,” said Steve Yankovich, vice president of mobile, eBay Inc. “More than half of eBay’s mobile gross merchandise volume comes from outside of the United States. As we seek to reduce friction in commerce, we are taking advantage of the unique features of each mobile platform. In the case of our Android app, we’re leveraging the Android’s voice search capabilities to make searching easier and faster.”
