Samsung (Edited by Review Geek)

When Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S22 lineup last February, it sneakily announced a plan to combine Samsung Pay and Samsung Pass into one app. It’s an obvious and expected move, but starting today, Galaxy owners in the US, UK and parts of Europe can use the new Samsung Wallet.

If that name sounds familiar, that’s because the original Samsung Wallet was launched almost a decade ago. It was killed off and replaced by the more ambitious Samsung Pay in 2015 (or 2016 in some regions).

Killing Wallet wasn’t a popular decision in 2015, but it made sense. Unfortunately, Samsung kind of backed into a corner with the “Pay” branding. The company has started integrating passwords, biometrics, digital car keys and other forms of identification into the Samsung Pass app. Many people would like to keep this information with their credit cards and boarding passes!

Wait, why were boarding passes not stored in Samsung Pass? I guess that doesn’t matter, because the new Samsung Wallet puts it all in one place. It also has some great features including SmartThings integration, a handy quick access panel, and cryptocurrency monitoring.

Samsung says Wallet is available today, although we don’t see it in Google Play or the Galaxy Store. The app is currently exclusive to the US, UK, Italy, Spain, Germany, and France.
