Google now offers in app payments for web appsWeb 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.
