The Android App marketplace briefly offered a Google-branded movie rental app for a short period last Friday, according to published reports. It was yanked quickly, but that still seemingly indicates an imminent widespread release.
Google hasn’t made any secret of its plans to relaunch the app, dubbed Google Videos. It first showed off a prototype at its Google I/O developer conference in May – and let Motorola Xoom owners have first crack at it in June. The pending launch would be for other Android devices.
The app gives users access to over 3,000 premium titles, which can currently be rented via Google on the PC.
