Google rolled out a handful of changes to the Android Market website today, making it easier for Android users to find and download apps. But the company is also making some behind-the-scenes changes to the Android Market.

First up, paid apps are coming to nearly 100 more countries, which means users in 131 different countries will be able to purchase paid apps.

Developers can now upload apps as large as 4GB. The previous limit was just 50MB. The move makes sense, as Android tablets don’t have the same kind of puny storage capacities early Android smartphones were stuck with… and many newer Android phones have enough space for a few 4GB apps as well.

Developers can also now blacklist certain devices to prevent users from installing an app on a phone or tablet that isn’t officially supported.
