“Pay with Google” is a new program which integrates with apps and websites in Chrome to make checking out a lot more simple. Instead of inputting your card information for every new service, simply add it to Google and select “Pay with Google” at checkout.

In other words, let’s get crackin’ you lazy devs because we’re in a hurry to part with our money.
