In a surprise announcement, Samsung said earlier today that it will merge Samsung Pass and its features into the Samsung Pay app. The merger will start today in South Korea, and it will expand to other markets in the coming months. The new app will house all your credit cards, debit cards, passwords, digital keys, tickets, coupons, membership cards, and even digital assets.

The brand new Samsung Pay update will be available on all Samsung Pay compatible smartphones running Android 9 and above. While Samsung Pay already stored users’ credit cards, debit cards, and membership cards, the new update will allow them to add Digital Keys for their cars and smart locks, and they can be shared with friends, family members, or anyone else.

Samsung Pay will get the ability to store Digital Keys, tickets, and bitcoins

Samsung Pay users can lock and unlock the doors of their compatible car and even start the engine through Digital Keys. A Digital Key for a smart lock compatible with SmartThings can be used to lock or unlock doors. The new app will also allow users to view their digital assets, such as bitcoins. Samsung will initially support bitcoin exchanges like Bithumb, Coinone, and Korbit.

Users would also be able to store their travel tickets in Samsung Pay. Travel tickets from Jeju Air, Jin Air, and Korean Air will be compatible with Samsung Pay, and support for more airlines will be added in the future. Movie tickets from Megabox, Lotte Cinema, and Ticket Link can also be added to the app. Users can monitor the security of all their digital assets through Samsung Knox.

Jini Han, Vice President of Digital Life Team, MX Division, Samsung Electronics, said, “Through the Samsung Pay update, we want to provide a more convenient experience not only for payment but also for home, car, public transportation, and cultural life. We plan to expand the Samsung Pay ecosystem by working with developers.
