If you like to watch movies but don’t feel like going out and seeing them at the cinema, then I have some good news for you. Google-owned and quite popular video sharing site YouTube has announced that, as part of its goal to bring more videos to the users, it is now making thousands of full-length feature films from major Hollywood studios available to rent in the US. The movies are available for rent at youtube.com/movies at industry standard pricing. They can be watched with the user’s YouTube account on any computer.

It must be mentioned here that the thousands of movies YouTube made available for rent are on top of the hundreds of movies that are available for free on YouTube since 2009.

Moving on, but keeping with the rent movies theme, at Google I/O, Google announced that it added Movies for rent to the Android Market. Android users can visit the Android Market and choose between thousands of movies available for rent (prices start at $1.99). Users can rent movies from Android Market on the web and those movies will be available across all the user’s Android devices.

At Google I/O the Mountain View-based search engine giant announced the launch of Music Beta by Google – just like movie renting in the Android Market, Music Beta by Google is available in the US only. This is a new service that allows users to upload their personal music collection to the cloud and then stream it to their computer or to their Android-powered device. The new service keeps playlists in sync, creates playlists of songs that go well together, and stores the most recently played music on the Android-powered device thus making music available for playback offline.

Please note that access to Music Beta by Google is available only by invitation.
A video presentation of Music Beta by Google is available on YouTube here.
