Google Chrome could get an awesome new feature at Google IO, rumour claims – Express.co.uk
Google Chrome users could soon be able to authenticate transactions with third-party payment solutions, it has been reported.
According to technology blog XDA, Google looks set to adopt Payment Request in its popular browser on Android – allowing users to quickly approve online transactions with the help of third-party apps.
That means Chrome users will no longer be required to enter their credit card details and billing address each and every time they want to buy something online.
Instead, website developers will be able to launch a third-party application – like PayPal or a banking app, for example – to quickly and securely complete the transaction.
Apple has implemented a similar solution with its own payment app, Apple Pay.
The new update is expected to be announced by Google at its annual developer conference, Google I/O, which starts later this week.
