During its keynote at Google I/O, Google today announced two new content services coming to Android devices. The first is a new movie rental service that is available from the online version of the Android Market, from Android tablets, and Android smartphones. Users will be able to rent "thousands" of movies for $1.99. They'll have a 30-day window in which to watch the movie, but it will expire 24 hours after first played. Google also announced Google Music beta. Google Music beta will let users upload up to 20,000 songs to their Google account for free and then stream them to desktop and mobile devices. The service will be available in beta first, and the general public may request invites. Google is also released a new version of the Android Music Player application that can interact with the new streaming service. it will support local caching so music can be played offline, and also allows users to make playlists on the fly, and use an "ingenius" automatic playlist creator. Users can upload files up to 320Kbps, and Google will stream the music back to the user at whatever bit rate the file is ripped in. It will roll out to more users over the coming weeks.
