Samsung has officially released the Samsung Wallet app in the Google Play Store. This app isn’t new to Samsung device owners, as the app was previously accessible via Samsung Apps, which is the company’s exclusive app hub for its smartphones. Samsung Wallet will let users store their passes, coupons, tickets etc virtually on their smartphones. This is a feature natively available through Apple’s iOS 6 mobile operating system.
It seems like the app isn’t available via the Play Store globally right now, which is expected since this is a gradual roll out. The Play Store listing mentions the following features:
- Optimized for HD and Full-HD Samsung devices
- Store and manage tickets, coupons, mobile boarding passes and membership cards in one convenient place
- Offers 5 default categories for easy management of Tickets. You can also add categories for more personalization.
- Customizable time and location-based reminders to show the Tickets at the right time and place.
- Synchronize all your Tickets to multiple devices using Samsung account
- Receive and store Co-marketing offers
- Create your own tickets manually by using ‘Create my ticket’ feature
- Discover grocery coupons and digitally save them to loyalty card of participating groceries
This is still an exclusive to Samsung devices as the app listing suggests, which beats the whole purpose of making it available via the Play Store. But for non-Samsung device owners, there are tons of third party apps which perform similar tasks (even better). Users of the Galaxy Note, Galaxy Note II, the Galaxy S4 or the Galaxy S3 can try out the app from the link below.
