Pay with Google using any credit card in your Google account (not just in Android Pay)

When you pay with Google, you can use any of the credit or debit cards you’ve added to your Google Account from products like Google Play, YouTube, Chrome or Android Pay. Google sends the merchant your payment info and shipping address using the information from your account—no typing required. Then, the merchant will handle all the details just like any other purchase.

This payment option will soon be coming to the web in Chrome.

Google Search will now show if an e-book is available at your local library (US only)

Here's how it works. On mobile, search for the book you're interested in and click the "Get Book" tab that appears right up top, just under the book's info. You'll then see where you can buy the e-book and below that, which libraries have it available. On desktop, the purchasing and library information appears on the right-hand side of the screen, just scroll down to get to the library bit. Once you click your library, you'll need your membership information to log in and get the book.
