Android 3.1 users can rent movies at $1.99.

At their annual Google I/O event, the search giant announced a new movie rental service for Android devices.

According to Google, thousands of movies are already available at the Android Market, starting at $1.99 for a 30-day rental period. Users will have 24 hours to watch the movie once started before it expires.

Google will release separate apps for phones and tablets, which will feature local storage capabilities for offline playback.

Currently, the movies can be accessed by users with Android 3.1; however, Google said that Android 2.2 users should get the service in a couple of weeks.
