Google has rolled out an updated version of its Videos app which adds support for devices running Google Android 2.2 Froyo and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Up until recently the app only supported tablets running Android 3.x Honeycomb.

The Google Videos app is where you can manage videos you’ve rented or see a list of top rentals. But to actually search for movies you’ll need to fire up the Android Market app. In fact, if you tap any of the movies listed in the top rentals section your phone will simply open the Android Market page.

Google added support for video rentals to the Android Market recently — but if you haven’t received the latest version of the Market app on your phone yet, you may not be able to rent videos.

Movie rentals in the Android Market are generally priced at $2.99 and up — with some titles going for as high as $6.99 — although the only title I found at that price is still currently in theaters.
