Google Announces Two New Streaming Media Services at I/O

Along with Google Music, the search giant had a big surprise in store for Android enthusiasts at I/O today.  We are pleased to report that Google has launched a movie rental and streaming service on Android!

Simple entitled, “Movies”, the service will allow you to rent and purchase movies right on your Android devices, and even allowing you to watch the media on Android web Market!  The setup will be familiar to you, as when you rent a video you have up to 30 days to initialize the viewing, then 24 hours to watch the content.

Another cool part of the Movies app will be the offline viewing option.  You will be able to take advantage of “pinning” in the app, which is literally using a “pushpin” to tell the app to download the movie for offline viewing.

It will be a couple of weeks before the app is ready for devices, but you can see the workings on the Android Market right now.

As far as Google Music, everything we recently reported has come true, and the Music app is now in the Market, albeit you need an invite to take full advantage of it.  Awesome stuff from Google!  Long live Android!
