Samsung recently added support for 19 additional credit and debit card issuers in the US as well as an ability to use Gift Cards with its mobile payment service. Now, Samsung has released an update to the Samsung Pay app that brings improvements to existing features as well as improved performance.

This update has been marked as mandatory by Samsung, and it has also been mentioned that users need to “[install this] update by December 27 to avoid any service interruptions.” The update also brings improved UI for Gift Cards, optimized memory usage, and improvements to notifications.

Additionally, there seems to be an new option, which is turned off by default, to receive marketing information such as special offers, membership benefits, and newsletters from Samsung Pay partners. Did you receive this update on your Samsung Pay compatible device?
