Chrome is about to get better at payments on mobile

Posted by on in Internet Research

Google's Chrome browser will soon be better at managing your passwords and payments information on the go.

 

Google introduced two new APIs for the mobile version of its browser Thursday at its I/O developer conference. The new developer tools streamline both the sign-in and checkout process on mobile websites.

 

A new Web Payment API allows users to complete the checkout process with just one touch. Websites that take advantage of the feature are able to autofill your payment and shipping information when it's time to check out.

 

Google demoed an early integration with Shopify onstage but the tool is now available now to any developer. The feature will also be compatible with Android Pay.

 

Similarly, Google's new Credential Management API makes it easier to keep track of login information from Chrome's mobile browser. Though Chrome's app has had password-manager features for some time, the new tool makes logging in even simpler.

 

When you get to a sign-in page, Chrome will automatically detect if it has saved your account information. You can then log in to your account with a single tap.

 

The API, which is available to developers now, also syncs passwords across devices, when you are logged into Chrome. Passwords that are synced to Chrome can also be shared with Android apps, if they use Android's Smart Lock feature.

 

Though both features are available now, it's up to developers to take advantage of the tools so it could be some time before we start seeing these more widely.
