Google plans on rolling out an update to its Android Market that will allow users to rent movies or buy books from their smartphones.
The update will be available to devices running the Android 2.2 operating system or higher, says a post on the official Google Mobile Blog.
Both movie rentals and book purchases are connected to the user's Google account, allowing them to download items across several devices such as phones, tablets or a PC.
The move is part of a broader redesign of the Market on mobile devices, including collections such as Top Charts and Editor's Picks.
Google says the update will appear in the coming weeks. Currently, users can add movie rentals or book purchases to their phones through the Android Market website.
