Samsung Wallet on Galaxy; What you should know

Samsung Wallet is now available in the United States and numerous European nations.

The software integrates Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass, and it supports digital IDs, keys, COVID-19 immunization cards, and other features.

Google announced a similar upgrade to Google Pay with its own Wallet app, which will be available soon.

Users can get the Samsung Wallet update through the Pass or Pay applications.

While we wait for the new Google Wallet app/upgrade, Samsung is releasing its own digital wallet update for Galaxy handsets. Samsung Wallet is the latest offering from Samsung to bring a comprehensive digital wallet experience to select Android handsets.

Samsung Wallet is the outcome of the merger of two previous Samsung services, Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass, in a manner similar to how Google Wallet replaced Google Pay in most markets.

This means that customers will be able to save not only their digital payment cards on the new app, but also passwords and biometrics to enter into numerous apps and services.

Users may also manage their bitcoins, save boarding permits and COVID-19 immunization cards, and use digital keys for their houses and select BWM, Hyundai, and Genesis vehicles using Samsung Wallet.

Samsung Wallet is bringing a new level of everyday convenience to mobile devices with a totally safe and secure environment for storing digital keys, cards and more,” says Jeanie Han, executive vice president and head of Digital Life at Samsung’s MX Business. “As part of our ongoing commitment to open ecosystems, we will continue to expand on the capabilities of Samsung Wallet by working closely with our trusted partners and developers.”

Why you should use Samsung Wallet?

Samsung Wallet will enable digital IDs and driver’s licenses later this year, according to the company. Thanks to Samsung Knox, the company’s security framework present on nearly all of Samsung’s top Android phones, items will be securely saved in the app.

The newly integrated app was recently introduced in South Korea, albeit it appears to retain the Pay brand. However, beginning June 16, Wallet will be available for Galaxy devices in the United States, United Kingdom, France, Italy, and Spain.

On June 17, Samsung Wallet will also be available in Germany, though users in supported countries should be warned that app availability will vary depending on device and area.

Users may learn more about the app by visiting the Galaxy Store, or by opening the Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass apps and following the upgrade prompt.
