Samsung has released yet another update to its payment app Samsung Pay. The South Korean tech giant introduced their mobile payment service named Samsung Pay in India before few months. Because, more and more Indian preferred to use UPI based payment systems such as PhonePe. So, Samsung added the support for UPI payments in their app. Now, the company is also bringing the support for Bharat QR-based UPI payment to the Samsung Pay app in India.
Merchants in the country will be able to opt for barcodes through the Bharat QR Code initiative; these barcodes will work just like the ones for wallets like Paytm, and Samsung Pay is getting in on the action early with support for Bharat QR code. In addition to Bharat QR Code support, the new update to Samsung Pay also brings Android Oreo compatibility, but that’s not new and has already been made available with the last update. The Oreo beta for India (and other phase two countries) is yet to start, but once it does, Galaxy S8 users should be able to use Samsung Pay without issues – first reported by SamMobile.
The latest Samsung Pay version on Google Play doesn’t enable UPI payment through Bharat QR code which means users will have to wait for few more days for a new update.
