Samsung Pay in India adds support for Freecharge wallet

Since the launch of the Samsung Pay in India, the company has been aggressively adding more and more features to make the mobile payment solution more useful and universal. In the recent past, Samsung Pay in India has gained support for third-party wallets, UPI transactions, bill payments, rewards, etc.- all of which made Samsung Pay even more compelling in the Indian market.

Samsung Pay update brings new features

Continuing its aggressive approach, Samsung Pay is gaining a couple of new features in the latest update. Along with Paytm and Mobikwik, users in India can also now link their Freecharge wallets to Samsung Pay. Samsung also mentions ‘Add money via UPI support’ in the changelog, but it is not immediately clear what this new feature is. The wording gives the impression that it has something to do with adding money to the wallet through UPI. We will update the post if we get more information about this. Apart from the new features, the update also brings minor UI changes to the Samsung Pay homepage.

If Auto update apps option is enabled in your Galaxy Apps application, then the update should be automatically installed. If you turned the auto-update feature off, then opening the Samsung Pay app should greet you with the update dialog box. The update, which weighs around 106 MB, can also be found in the Update section under My apps in the Galaxy app store.

Samsung Pay has the first-mover advantage in India as neither Apple Pay nor Google Pay is currently available in the country. By constantly adding new and useful features, Samsung Pay is transforming into a feature-rich and widely-supported mobile payment solution even before the global competitors bring their offerings to the market.

Thanks, Imaduddin!
