is there a simple way (without writing script or Python skills) to auto calculate and auto populate lat and lon attributes in QGIS?

When I manually add new points or move existing points in my layer, I'd like the lat and lon attributes to be captured and the attribute table populated/updated as I complete the task. Right now, I create or modify the points and then update the attribute table with $y and $x in the Field Calculator.

    use a virtual field or an auto-updating default field value
