At the end of last week, owners of the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+, and Galaxy Note 5 on Verizon began receiving an update that not only brought the latest round of Stagefright fixes, but also made each ready for Samsung Pay. Then on Monday, a direct link to Samsung Pay on Google Play was discovered that allowed these phone owners to install Samsung’s mobile payment systems and get to tap, tap, tapping on payment terminals everywhere. And then Samsung said, “No, no, not yet,” and pulled it.
In an announcement that arrived in our inboxes this morning, Samsung says that everything is now ready and Verizon owners can officially join the party (again). Well, they are telling us that the Samsung Pay link goes live at 12PM Eastern (9AM Pacific) on Google Play, but it’s already live and showing as installable on compatible devices.
Go get it!
