What you need to know

  • Samsung Wallet launches in the U.S. and several European countries.
  • The app combines both Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass, with support for digital IDs, keys, COVID-19 vaccination cards, and more.
  • Google recently announced a similar revamp to Google Pay with its own Wallet app, which is available soon.
  • Users can update to Samsung Wallet from the Pass or Pay apps.

While we wait for the new Google Wallet app/update to grace our phones, Samsung has its own digital wallet revamp arriving on Galaxy smartphones. Samsung Wallet is here as the latest offering to bring a comprehensive digital wallet experience to select Android devices.

In a somewhat similar vein to Google Wallet replacing Google Pay in most markets, Samsung Wallet is the result of merging two existing Samsung services, Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass.
