Product Manager, Digital Wallet team
Have you heard the news about Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2023, which was announced on the Samsung Developers portal and global channels?
If you’ve received an email invitation to Galaxy Unpacked 2023, scheduled for July 26, add it to Samsung Wallet for a quick and convenient way to enter the event hall.
The "Add to Samsung Wallet" service enables Samsung device users to clip and save a variety of digital content, such as tickets, coupons, boarding passes, membership cards, to Samsung Wallet for easy access. “Add to Samsung Wallet” allows them to do this conveniently without having to leave the other online channels they are using, such as an application, website, email, or SMS/MMS message.
Smart ways to use "Add to Samsung Wallet"

On July 26, expect new, wonderful, and innovative Android tablets, smart watches, and the most anticipated of all, 5th-generation foldable phones, to be revealed at Galaxy Unpacked 2023. You can also attend Galaxy Unpacked remotely by watching the real-time live stream on the Samsung Electronics website and YouTube channel.

“Add to Samsung Wallet” also supports different kinds of tickets, such as to movies, sports events, and concerts. The related APIs allow you to implement the feature for your service, checking whether the user’s device supports Samsung Wallet and if so, enabling the "Add to Samsung Wallet" button.
