Samsung Pay support rolling out to compatible Verizon devices
Is Google Wallet simply not good enough for you? Maybe you want to try an alternative, something Samsung smartphone owners have been enjoying since late last month. But apparently not all Sammy handsets are created equally, or at least they are not supported equally. Samsung Pay was a little late to Verizon devices, but the carrier told us a software update would end the wait soon.
The day has come and now Big Red subscribers with supported smartphones can enjoy Samsung Pay support. The trick here is that the update with support is rolling out, but Verizon users won’t see the application already installed. Instead, they will have to download it from the Google Play Store.

Samsung Pay is still evolving, though, so you will need to be a little patient with the manufacturer. Right now the service only supports American Express, Bank of America, U.S. Bank and Synchrony Financial. Not to mention the fact that there isn’t much support at stores to even use wireless payments.
I haven’t seen the update hit my Verizon Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge yet, so we are sure the update is rolling out slowly. Have any of you gotten it? Also, please share your thoughts on Android Pay if you have been using it!
