Web apps for Google Chrome were introduced earlier this year with the release of Google Chrome 9, and since then it’s been proven to be quite a hit. Who would’ve thought that apps that run in a browser could generate so much attention? Well, after introducing the in-app payments system for Android not too long ago, Google has now introduced in-app payment for its web apps.
This move will give users the ability to make purchases from within web apps themselves, opening up a whole world of selling in-game items or even magazine subscriptions for consumers (assuming developers do implement it). With an API that’s touted as easy to use, expect a lot of web apps that feature in-app purchasing to pop up sometime within the next few weeks.
