LastPass has announced that it has released an updated version of its Android application in Google Play, which brings support for password autofills for apps and for websites on Chrome for Android.
The new feature is however only available for apps on devices running Android 4.1 and later, and for Chrome on devices running Android 4.3 and later. It also needs LastPass premium subscription.
