Google is releasing a new version of its web browser for Android devices. This browser, known as Chrome 53 will come with a number of new features, including support for Android Pay and credit card payments.

These innovations can help several different groups. They give consumers faster, easier ways to pay online while shopping on their Android devices. They give retailers more payment options to offer their customers, which can ultimately lead to better sales. They also make it easier for developers to incorporate payment processing into a site’s coding, which will save everyone involved time and money.

The Chrome 53 update will be rolled out in stages. Users will be able to enjoy “one-tap checkouts,” where their saved data will automatically populate on the payment processing form. This option is available through the Payment Request API, which can be used on other browsers and platforms. One-tap Android Pay and credit card support could be coming to all mobile devices in the near future.

The new version of Chrome will utilize less battery life during operation, and is expected to have faster processing than Chrome 52. It will also automatically play muted videos, so users do not have to click on the videos in order to watch them. The ones that will remain paused are those that are supposed to play with sound when they first run.
