Google Chrome users will now have an easier way to pay while online shopping, says Google, thanks to an update that lets you access the payment information you’ve saved to your Google Account. Previously, you could sync this payment information between browsers on different platforms by turning on the Google sync option. Now, the company says you’ll be able to access autofill for payments just by signing into your Google Account while on the desktop — even if Chrome sync is disabled.
You can also manage your credit and debit cards associated with your Google Account under your Account settings (Payments & Subscriptions –> Payment methods), the company notes.
Using this feature won’t automatically turn on Chrome sync. You’d still have to do that manually, if you want to sync other information in between your devices, like bookmarks, history, open tabs, passwords, autofill, and other settings.
