Owners of various non-Samsung smartphones have begun to notice that the Samsung Pay payment service has stopped working on their devices.
Quite a few users have already complained about the problem on the Reddit forums and Samsung Members. Usually in such cases, the application gives an invalid identifier error.
At the same time, some users have already managed to communicate with Samsung technical support, which stated that the service would allegedly no longer work on smartphones of other brands. However, our colleagues at SamMobile believe that Samsung would have announced such a major change in the service. In addition, some owners of smart watches Galaxy Watch began to face the problem.
Recall that the Samsung Pay service initially offered a unique opportunity to work through MST technology, which allowed the smartphone to interact with a conventional payment terminal only for magnetic tape cards. However, some time ago, Samsung stopped endowing its devices with support for this technology, so now they all work via NFC. Actually, like third-party smartphones when using Samsung Pay.
