As promised, Google is streamlining on-line purchases made through android devices by rolling out Pay with Google. The feature lets you use any of the credit or debit cards you have previously logged on the web titan’s products (like Chrome, android Pay, YouTube, or Google Play) to checkout in just some clicks — confirming your purchase with a security code or your android device. That way, you do not need to type in your lengthy card information on a web site or app payment form.
