Samsung Pay has been updated with support for MobiKwik, following its introduction on Samsung Pay Mini earlier this year. Like PayPal, the platform allows customers to add money to a virtual wallet, which can then be used for payments both in-store and online.
Here’s the full changelog:
- MobiKwik (Android 7.0 Nougat+)
- UPI: Transfer money between your bank accounts
- UPI: Send money directly from contacts
- Import previously added CC/DC on sign-in
- Usability improvements
This news comes less than a month after Samsung Pay added compatibility for debit cards issued by the State Bank of India (SBI), the largest bank and most widely-used bank in the region, and around two months after the payment service arrived on the Galaxy J7 (2016).
Samsung is hoping to bring the scaled-down version of its mobile payment platform, Samsung Pay mini, to smartphones from other manufacturers—like LG and Sony—in the coming months, according to recent reports. Whether it will happen though is a completely different story.
